    Smiling isn’t always easy, but it’s definitely contagious.  You always hear about that one person who is always happy and you often wish that could be you. The truth is, it can be. Have you tried smiling lately? Next time you take a “selfie” crack a smile. You can start off with a small side smile like the big picture in this post and make your way to showing your teeth!

  • Live Each Moment

    Each day is a new shot at life. It is a beautiful sunny day here in South Florida and although I wish Jeff was home with us, I am excited that today is a short day and he will be home tomorrow.

  • All Smiles At The Keys

    Some places are worth the travel. When Jeff mentioned he wanted to take a trip to the Keys the first thing that came to mind was, that is a long drive! His reasoning behind it was to see something new. I am not a fan of long trips, but I do like to prepare for them. So, knowing where we were headed days in advance was beneficial. I mentioned in a previous post how I like to overpack and pack in advance whenever we plan a family trip. Doing so always gives me piece of mind. We had treats for the
