Thoughts & Ramblings

The inspiring Inger Kenobi tagged me to share with you all 50 things that make me smile.

In Inger’s words, I do want to say that these things are not listed in order of priority. So if I list, ‘A hot bath,’ before, ‘My friends and loved ones,’ that is not in any way a reflection of how I feel. Clear? Good!
