April Blog Challenge Post #1

Prompt:  An intro and tell us something that makes you smile

Ok, yes, today is April 2nd and this is my first post...on a daily blog challenge.  When I first posted about the challenge, I told you all that you had my permission to kick my butt through the computer if you catch me not posting on this everyday.  Well, I did get a message from one of you...already.  I know, it's the first day and I already missed it!  Ahhh, but look, I have a good excuse!  I moved on the 31st and the 1st.  So between moving all of our stuff and setting up the new place and working (I know, I should have taken a couple days off), I was beat!  But you will (should) see me posting every day of April from now on!  I will even do two today to get back on track.

Ok, so the prompt for April 1st was an intro and to tell you something that makes me smile.  Well, I'm counting above as my intro.  Instead of something that makes me smile, I'm going to give you a whole list.  Nothing wrong with sharing lots of things that make you smile right?  We can all use some extra happiness.

Things that bring a smile to my face:

-a clean house (Hey, I just moved, and I'm staring at a bunch of boxes in front of me)

- playing in the rain

-laying on the beach feeling the sun on my face

-really good food (and by that, I mean lots of carbs and sweets and cheese.  Give me some yummy pasta and ice cream all day long)

-Watching my son laugh/play

-Being in nature- beach, forest, mountains, anything

- Doing something new- visiting a new city, trying a new activity, etc

- A good book

- Random acts of kindness


-When I first lay my head down on my pillow at the end of the night

-Hearing a song come on the radio from back in my college days

I'm sure I'm missing some great ones!  I'd love to hear if you have anything to add to the list!

A Fresh Start
