There’s a lot going on in the headlines these days, and not always the kinds of things we feel like celebrating with a stack of candle-lighted pancakes or emoji cupcakes. If I’ve learned anything in the process of writing the book you’re looking at above, though, one of the most comforting things we can do — for our children, for our communities, for ourselves — is create meaningful ways to connect with each other day after day, week after week, year after year. Sunday dinners, birthday breakfasts, pizza Fridays, autumn block parties, post-game ice cream cones. These are the small moments that add up to big memories. Especially when there’s a big plate of soy-glazed pork chops served right alongside ’em.
How to Celebrate Everything, my ode to family rituals, is out today and I hope you like it. If the spirit moves you, please tag me on any social feeds (or just use the hashtag #howtocelebrateeverything) so I can be part of your celebration, however big or small. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. As of this morning, you can also find me on this nifty video below, produced by my friend and superstar, Ed Nammour.
Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t extend a heartfelt thanks to you guys, for all your support with my books these past few years. It’s what keeps me going — quite literally — and I am so grateful.
Yours in celebration,
