One of our favorite movie scenes of all time is the “pool of noodles” scene from Patch Adams.
If you’re not familiar with this scene, you need to stop everything you’re doing, watch this clip, and then come back and finish reading this post.
Amazing, right? We think so, too.
We didn’t want to forget the little things. We didn’t want to forget the big things, either.
So, each week, we’ve decided to pull one pink slip from our vase at home and share the story behind it with the world in a new series called…
From the Pink Slip Files…
Some of them will make you smile and laugh, others might make you gasp, or even cry, but we hope all of them will connect us more deeply with you — and connect you more deeply to the people you love.
If you want, you can even join us on the adventure. Go out, buy a stack of colored paper, and start filling a vase with your favorite memories.
After all, you can’t swim in a pool of them if you don’t start today…
