Things That Make You Smile

If you sat for minute or two, you could probably make a fairly long list of things that always make you smile. I can think of quite a few and one of the things on my list are puppies. Even dog breeds that I don't admire very much seem to even still produce adorable puppies.

My husband and I own a Great Pyrenees and those puppies are some of the cutest on the planet. We're also really fond of French Bulldogs and this poor little puppy might be one of the cutest ones ever.

What are come of the things that make YOU smile?

The Crisp Fall Air

It has yet to hit the south but crisp fall air is right around the corner. I can just feel it!

Do you go to your state fair? I never did as a kid. My parents aren't exactly what you call extroverts and so large crowds and noisy rides weren't exactly their thing to say the least. In fact, I had never been to our state fair until two years ago when my husband and I went together. He grew up in a state where the state fair is almost sacred and cannot be missed. Being that it's one of the best and largest state fairs in the country, I can understand why. But the state we live in now... not so much. Our state fair has had a long history of utter puny-ness. Maybe that's another reason why my parents never took us. I have to say it was a pretty big disappointment to my hubby after the grandeurs of state fairs gone by in his childhood but we had a fun day and enjoyed the grossly over-sized pumpkins and the pig races. Seriously.

But, I digress. Jeremy ordered some witnessing tracts this week and it's making us both feel like going back tomorrow for our weekly Friday date. When you can combine a great night out with your best buddy AND get to preach the Gospel to people in need, what better multi-tasking could there be?

Tell me about your state fair or county fair memories. I need some good ones!
