Wednesday, July 13th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Elaine Howell!

I did a “10 Things That Make Me Smile” in May and enjoyed hunting for the right emojis so much that I had to do it again.

So, here’s a little list of 10 things that make me sigh with happiness (not frustration!), listed in no particular order.

  • πŸ₯ž Breakfast on the table.
  • πŸŠπŸ½β€β™€οΈ Stepping into the pool for a swim.
  • πŸ’ A goodnight kiss from the 8-year-old.
  • πŸ“š The Happy-Ever-After for the story I’m reading.
  • 🌼 Smelling flowers.
  • πŸŒƒ Finding constellations in the sky.
  • 🐈 My cat purring in my lap.
  • 🧹 The smell of a freshly mopped floor.
  • 🍫 A small square of dark chocolate melting on my tongue.
  • πŸ“– Reaching The End of my book!

You know what’s coming next! 😈
