I’m generally a happy person. I laugh a lot. I’ve found the secret to being happy is appreciating the small things. These are just some of the things that make me smile.
Spending time with my granddaughter. Since she was young, she would take a bubble bath in my Jacuzzi tub. We still love doing it.
Food. Food that is good, but maybe not so good for you. Chocolate, ice cream, and fried chicken. (Hey, I’m from Alabama, I have to love fried chicken) Recently, hubby and I went out and were served fried chicken that looked like a heart.
A good book. Okay, I told you ice cream makes me smile, but I have to tell you, books are better than ice cream. There is nothing like losing yourself in a good book. It takes you away from your own problems, from your own stresses, and sweeps you into a story. Reading is a vacation for the mind. And you can’t go wrong with The Problem With Forever by Jennifer Armentrout or Some Boys by Patty Blount or How To Be Brave by Katherine Kottaras.
My dog, Lady. Everyone who knows me, knows I honestly believe that our pets teach us to be better humans. Lady not only forces me to go for a walk every day, but she insists on play time and on petting time. Whenever I’m laughing and having a good time, lady will grab a toy and bring it to me.
So… What makes you smile? One person who leaves a post will win a bag of C.C. Hunter swag, promotional items, i.e. bookmarks, pens, stress balls and such. (Sorry, but this giveaway is for US residents only. And if you’re reading this on Goodreads, you need to leave your comment on my actual blog.)
The winner of last week’s giveaway is Kaylin Doulen. Congratulations! Kaylin, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me which one of my books you’d like, and also be sure to give me your mailing address.
