Create Your Happy | Giraffe Life

In these times, it is so important to keep up your spirits so you can stay sane and sharp when it’s time to make the tough decisions. One of my favorite animals is the giraffe. It’s tall and beautiful. It’s quiet, but so powerful. Not to mention that they are pregnant for two years before they have a baby – which I was also, but had two babies in that time! So I feel some kind of connectivity with this animal. Here are some of my favorite giraffe things that will bring joy to any household. 

Party – Now I understand that it can be really difficult to have any type of gathering during this time – especially if you are living in the south. BUT there will be a time when we can have parties, family gatherings and other events again. Here are some of our favorite giraffe decorations.

No matter how you choose to show your love for giraffes, there are options for everyone. It is so important to enjoy the small moments and things in life. I feel like this pandemic has opened many people’s eyes to how short life is and that it is so important to keep the things that you love close. So if giraffes bring a smile to your face, don’t be afraid to show your love for them. And always remember to wash your hands, social distance and wear a mask so we can all party again!
