butterflies represent the wonder of life


Hi! I am so grateful that you took the time to read my blog! My friends have been encouraging me to write a blog about the thing I enjoy most, trying to make life just a little more special. Happiness is what motivates me, both striving personally to be happy and making other people feel happy. I'm betting a lot of you share this drive. Together we can do our part to brighten the days of the people around us and add some sparkle to our own along the way.


In Make It Special, I want to share some creative ways to enjoy Family Time, Friend Time and Personal Time. Some of those ideas include throwing parties or hosting special events... possibly taking a trip...or simply choosing the perfect gift. The main underlying principle is always "how can I make it special"?


Finally, I hope we can all share ideas, tips, and recommendations for products, travel and more. I could really use your help to make this blog a success.

I hope you will take this journey with me to make all of our lives a little more special.
