Day #15 of BLOGMAS calls for sharing some happiness in the news lately. I’m not quite sure if you may have noticed but… pretty much everyone seems to be well past over 2020 and ready to move onto bigger and better things, aka 2021. It definitely feels like we’ve all had of our fair share of bad news, stress, frustration and down right challenging times this past year. Right? Right.

So, I was sitting here tossing around some ideas, trying to think of something (anything… really) that I could bring to my blog to help spread light, share some happiness and add a little sprinkle of joy to your feed. Insert: My “Things That Make You Smile” blog series concept! I thought that maybe if you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or even a bad year (hello, F-R-I-E-N-D-S reference ;)) seeing some random acts of kindness or cuter than cute dog videos could help get your mind off things, even if its just for a moment in time or a few spare minutes in your day.
