As I sat at table number 3 in the room rightfully named Queen, I watched as the birthday girl made her way throughout the room. The kisses and hugs were included like the beer and wine on the menu. She found herself in a room with family that hadn’t been in the same place at the same time for a while. I watched as she small stepped her way across the room to welcome the other tables. Whoever she couldn’t get to crowded her chair leaving warm smiles, cards and boxes of all sizes. I couldn’t believe she had just turned 100!
There is a tradition in my family where we make sure to clean everything up before the new year. The house needs to be spotless and everything should be in its proper place in anticipation for Father Time’s arrival. This year is no exception, so I would like to start 2017 off with something fresh and clean.
Last month as I was working on my blog for the holidays I decided to team up with Radisson Red for their December “Art of Giving” Challenge. Radisson Red is a line of hip hotels that believes they can enhance the world of Millennials through art, music, and fashion during their travels. Although the focus of my challenge relied on reusing and re-purposing clothes for a vintage look, I was inspired to expand on the topic of the art of giving.
