10 Things That Make Me Smile (Contest)
Wednesday, May 4th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Laura!

I’m generally a very cheerful person. I believe in smiles. I remember reading about a study of depressed people who were told to stand in front of a mirror every day and smile at themselves. And weirdly (or maybe not!) their depression improved. I get that. I smile at myself, too. I tell the kids a smile can be a choice. I love finding reasons to smile.

So, here’s a little list of 10 things that make me smile, listed in no particular order. Finding the emojis to correspond with them was so much fun! See? I’m already smiling.

  • ☕ First morning coffee with my dd.
  • 🧜🏼‍♀️ Floating in my pool.
  • 🍅 Making a Greek salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions.
  • 🤝 Holding the little one’s hand.
  • 👩‍🎨 Painting flowers.
  • 🏃‍♀️ Writing an action scene.
  • 🌅 Watching the sun set on the ocean.
  • 🌸 Fresh flowers in a vase.
  • 🍫 A small square of dark chocolate after dinner.
  • 📖 Reading a good book with a kitty on my lap.

You know what’s coming next! 😈
