{reasons to smile}

Ever have one of those days where everything seems to hit you at once from multiple facets of your life? That's been me the past two days (epitome of a sensitive girl here, y'all). I was on the phone with my mom last night and she gave me two pieces of advice... 1) Don't forget that everyone is going through something. You never know what's happening behind closed doors. 2) Find something to smile about. #smartmomma


Because I believe that happiness is contagious I figured what better way to try and lift my spirits and possibly someone else's by sharing my {current} list of totally random things that make me smile. I try to write them down in my phone on the notepad app whenever I think of something new...
Happy Wednesday, friends!

MY LIST OF REASONS TO SMILE:
1. a hot cup of tea in the morning
2. cool summer breeze with the sun shining
3. learning something new
4. the perfect bowl of macaroni and cheese
5. knowing this too shall pass
6. drawings from my nephew
7. hearing people love to see how you're doing
8. catching up with an old friend
9. knowing nothing has changed with that friend
10. mint leaves in water
11. getting those heels 70% off
