I Go Ahead and Smile

I was recently tagged by Emily from Resplendent Tranquility to complete the 6 Things that Make Me Smile tag. Thank you, Emily! From one Emily to another, here are my 6.

6 Things That Make Emily Anne Smile:

1. Dancing around barefoot on an empty the beach at night when the sun is setting and the winds are whipping and all you need to wear is a big comfy sweater.

2. Watching people living out their dreams. Its an instant motivation booster.

3. Seeing my poppy's (my grandfather) face when I show him pieces of my art.
He's undoubtedly my biggest fan.

4. Buying my first piece of clothing for that season. I try it on in my room over and over again to get creative and inspired and to update my wardrobe as the weather changes.

5. Being told that your loved by someone. Just by screaming "love you!" down the hallway to friends is a short but sweet way to brighten the mood of the day
and anticipate seeing them after class.

6. Seeing other people smile. Other people's happiness and laughter makes me a happier person.


This post made me happier and I want to spread the love therefore I'm tagging these lovelies..

So sorry for being MIA lately, but I'm glad to be back into the bologosphere!!! Comments will be coming back shortly. Oh and I hope you like the new layout! I get easily bored with them and its a fun way to spend some time so expect it to change like every month. (And yes, I do have pearls on my head in my profile picture!)

Side Note: I know in number 3 of this post I mentioned my grandfather. He's an amazing, amazing person, but he was diagnosed will a dreadful disease called ALS, or "Lou Gehrig's Disease." I don't know what you're religious beliefs are but if you would just keep him and also my grandmother who is greatly affected by this in your thoughts or prayers I would be most grateful.

Another Side Note: Go to Perforated Dream Cloud a blog made by my very close friend. Even though she just started this blog, I am already intrigued by her posts. Kizzy is amazing and we can all learn something from her.

Oh gosh that's a really tough disease for the entire family to deal with... am not particularly religious or anything but will definitely pray for your granddad... hope you're ok? i can imagine how saddening it must be. at least he'll still be able to enjoy your artwork for now!

dancing along the beach barefoot is such a wonderful thought. =) As is shouting out 'love ya' to friends. there can never be too much love in this world.

Thanks for your sweet comment too X)
