Celebrate That

We celebrate lots of the large and important aspects of our lives. There are the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, the births of babies and such that need to be benchmarked on our timelines. Recognizing the biggies is easy to do. Let us not forget to commemorate our small successes, our recoveries, our friendships and our families. These  martinis, downtown on an ordinary, showery summer afternoon, signaled nothing more the togetherness of two best friends and all the times they spend in each other's company. We must never forget to raise our glasses to these intricate pieces of our lives. We pass them everyday. Celebrate!
