More Smiles & a Giveaway!

Last week I shared some things that make me smile. I wanted to share a few more, especially after I saw so many wonderful comments about what make all of you smile.

Nature makes me smile. I love it when I’m surrounded by nothing but the sounds of nature.  Birds, crickets, chirping squirrels, the wind blowing through the trees.









Sunsets always make me smile, but especially sunsets on the beach.









My hubby’s always doing crazy things to make me smile.  Just last week we took my granddaughter to see the movie Captain Underpants.  When we got home, hubby went into the bedroom and came out wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants and told her, “I’m the real Captain Underpants.”  My granddaughter and I laughed so hard we almost cried.  I love that he’s willing do anything to make someone laugh.







And of course, my friends.









Again, I want to ask you 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 Cinthia Hamer. Congratulations, Cinthia!  You’ve won a bag of Christie Craig swag. Please email me at and give me your mailing address.

  1. I love the sounds of nature. I live in the woods and one my favorite things to listen to at night in the summer is the owls. We have a family of them this year. lol My hubby and I love taking the Jeep out and just drive, just see where it takes us. My favorite it when we find a waterfall. I’m a sucker for waterfalls. Even got married in front of one. 🙂

  2. My 4 wonderful grandchildren who give me great love, pleasure and enjoyment.
    My dog, Bogie who is a special companion.
    Sunshine and blue skies.
    Books and reading.
    Family and meals.

  3. Quiet time with my boyfriend. When life gets crazy busy, I really appreciate when we go for night walks with fur baby or sit on the porch listening to storms.

  4. My students! They are so full of life and not jaded. They have all the potential in the world and they make me smile (and laugh) every single day!

    They embody the good in the world- even though they are teenage punks. : )

  5. Sitting on the patio listening to classic country. Spending time with my grandson. Sitting on a bank somewhere with a fishing pole in the water. These are some of the things that make me smile.
