HAPPY FRIDAY darlings!!! I truly hope your week has been blessed, productive, and full of happy things! I know that life is not always rosy and full of positivity, but I certainly wish nothing but good stuff for you all. As we head into the Christmas holiday and the New Year, I am very grateful to have y’all in my life, even those of you who never comment or engage with me on social media, because each of you taking the time to read, give me reason to keep this blog going each week :-). If for no other reason, I am grateful for those of you who read these weekly SMILE post because they give me reason to reflect and put life into perspective. No matter how horrible things might be or how many negatives are coming my way in life, this weekly SMILE post reminds me that I always have a reason to smile. Every week I share pictures (via Instagram, or my regular iPhone camera) of things that made me smile.

These are some things that made me smile this week:

  • An amazing hand painted skirt made by artists of MOCAH Worldwide be auctioned off at Melodrama Boutique’s pre-grand re-opening!


  • Fun times with friends at the boutique event mentioned above and Dee’s Ugly Sweater Christmas party 🙂

Ok lovelies, now it’s your turn!! What are some things that made you smile this week?

  • This was my daughter’s first trip to see Santa and the pics made me smile. Her expression is so funny to me. I also smile at how my daughter associates “pee pee in the potty” with getting a lollipop . Potty training has been a breeze so far!

  • I think I am going to have to borrow this series from you sometime. It kind of lets us get to know you as a person, which is what I really would like to do more of on my blog.
