Welcome to Our Book of Awesome, a celebration of the small joys that bring us together.
In a world that is often overwhelming, it’s time to return to the simple things, the AWESOME things, all around us...if only we take a moment to see them: -Carrying the ice cube tray from the sink to the freezer without spilling -Finally unsubscribing from that annoying email you’ve been getting forever -Seeing your parents dance -Adding a gift note to yourself on your online order -Sending a private message during the video conference and then seeing your coworker look down and silently smirk -When your kids don’t hear you opening a bag of potato chips -When the hand sanitizer isn’t that extra slippery kind that never dries -Texting your husband to do something when he’s upstairs and you’re downstairs -When the cake plops flawlessly out of the pan
These are just a few of the hundreds and hundreds of things you’ll find in this new volume. You’ll also find comments, letters, and submissions from the AWESOME community around the world, leading to a final cacophony of awesome, by all of us, for all of us.
Our Book of Awesome is an injection of joy, a heartfelt gift, and a smacking high five for humanity. Read it to be reminded of the endless AWESOME things that give laughter and happiness to our beautiful and brief lives.
