Take time today to celebrate the little things.

We believe that it’s important to put more play in your every day to build happy memories and use Good Times Glue to bind the hearts of family and friends.

Here are a few ideas of things that are out of the ordinary, worthy of a mini party:

  • the beginning or ending of a project
  • your child’s recital, sporting event or good report
  • season premiere or finale of your favorite TV series
  • binge party for a new show
  • friend visiting that you haven’t seen for awhile
  • new haircut, outfit or eyeglasses that make you feel fabulous
  • new decor in your home that you want to show off
  • the season opener of your favorite team
  • premier of a highly-anticipated movie
  • absolutely anything 

Don’t have a reason to celebrate today?
