Fabulous Friday – 23 September 2016

Fabulous Friday Button

We should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. What better day to celebrate these little things than the best day of the week? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.

  • MARCHING BAND SEASON – Tomorrow is the very first marching band competition of the season. This year, in addition to watching Connor march across the field, we get to see him do all sorts of fun salutes during the awards ceremonies as one of the drum majors. I can’t wait!

What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?
