The Smile Tag // I’m Happiest When…

Happy Friday, everyone! What better way to roll into the weekend than with some smiles, am I right? I was lucky enough to be nominated for the smile award twice, so I’m going to really load you guys up. I normally only take photos of products or myself for the blog, so I’m excited to introduce you guys to some important people in my life.

I was nominated for this tag by two different bloggers. The first was the lovely Laura of Lauzies Lifestyle. She’s absolutely stunning and covers everything from food to poems to fitness. I was also nominated by the incredible Jamie of Don’t Give A Jam. I am so obsessed with her blog! She covers lifestyle and beauty and has super original posts. Thank you both for the fun tag!

This tag was created by Ciarra Loren, and the rules are that there are no rules! The creative aspect is yours, all she wants you to do is share a photo of you smiling. How fun is that?!

Without further ado, I’m happiest when

I’m with my love

This is my boyfriend, Chad. You know, the one that I let pick my lipstick for a week. We’ve been together for almost eight years now, so there’s been a lot of happy moments together.

From college graduation to celebrating anniversaries to just going hiking together, our time together makes me very happy. We were long distance throughout college, so the moments in these photos are truly some of my happiest moments.

I’m with my family

I’ve been lucky enough to always be extremely close to my mom’s side of the family. My dad’s side is a little more spread out, but we’re working on all getting together more. Either way, I’m glad to have a large family who loves and supports me in everything I do. It’s really a blessing.

There’s nothing formal about my family, and I love it. I’m the oldest in the family, with a little brother and a bunch of younger cousins. While it made me an extremely spoiled child [thanks, grandma and grandpa!], I think I’m really lucky to get to see every single person in my family grow.

I’m with my friends

My time in school has brought me two extremely close friends. They’ve been there for me through tough times and the happiest ones. Morgan and Shanon are literally my backbone in this scary ride of life. Both are always there when I need a wine night or sushi date.

Then there’s my post-school friend! Sarah is the one involved in all the crazy weekend adventures, like the Cleveland Museum Of Art and the Tea House. I am so lucky to have met her. Were completely different and completely the same all at once. It’s so incredible.

There you have it! I told you I’d really load you up on the pictures. This tag was so much fun. I hope you guys got to know me a little better!

I nominate…

CharlieeStar, Simple Serenity, Elsie L.M.C., Theresa Marie Daily, and Ampersand.

I can’t wait to see all of your smiles!
