50 Things That Make Me Happy

I was happy to see that I had been tagged in a post by the wonderful Angela over at Hiding Behind Books. This post was all about 50 things that make her happy and, as I was reading, I saw a part that said she could have easily come up with over one hundred things that make her happy! That’s a lot of things. Now, I can’t say that I will have an easy time writing this as I have never really stopped to think about individual things that make me happy but it will be a nice challenge to take on.

You can also see my feature of Angela’s post in episode four of Reading Your Blogs – a series I run weekly on YouTube to shine a light on other bloggers and help share people’s content in the hopes to help them improve and increase the size of their audience.
