Weekly Recap #9 | Things That Made Me Happy

things that made me happy #9

Hello beauties!

I hope all of you having a great weekend so far. “Weekly Recap | Things That Made Me Happy” is another series where I will be sharing all the things that made me happy. My goal is to spread some happiness and gratitude of little or big things that are happening in my life, and encourage others to share their happy/grateful things of the week.

Sometimes all it takes is gentle reminders of things that make us grateful or appreciative. I mean, we live in a world full of senseless violence, poverty, famine, and tragedy – reflecting on the positive, I find, makes me open my eyes a bit more to appreciate the little things…Don’t you agree?

Feel free to share things that made you happy this week. Here are mine ♡

A Day To Myself
Saturday, my husband and our youngest daughter Annabella took my mother-in-law on the LaBarge Cruise. It’s the most wonderful and relaxing cruise with a spectacular view along the beautiful shoreline of Sarasota Bay. And, you get to see local bottlenose dolphins and manatees. I skipped going with them this time around and took advantage of spending a day to myself. I spend most of my day at home, watching TV, blogging, reading other blogs, engaging with bloggers, taking photos for upcoming blog posts, ate (lots) and even took a nap. It felt amazing!

Creating A Social Media Posting Schedule
I finally was able to create a daily/weekly/monthly social media posting schedule. My life definitely got easier. I found that sticking to a schedule is very important for my blog. It helps me to get things done, get ahead and keeps everything running smooth. I was also amazed to see the big difference in my blog traffic. I use Buffer to schedule all my blog posts, share links to other social media and miscellaneous things in between. I love it!

Catching Up With All My Blog Comment
Finally, I was able to catch up on all my blog comments. I’m so happy to know that so many people enjoy reading my blog. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m very grateful to have such amazing fans. Thank you all for your support, without out I wouldn’t be where I am today. You are the best!

Donating Blood

Lately, the world has been a very disturbing and scary place to live in. Do many horrible things has been happening and I’m petrified for what’s to come. For these reasons and more, I have decided to safe lives and donate the blood for those in need. I admit I was very nervous, since it was my first time. The thought of a needle stuck in my vein for 30 min terrified me. But, it wasn’t bad at all, in fact it was a great experience. The whole time I kept thinking that I’m saving a life of someone who is dying. And it felt great! If you ever considered donating blood I encourage you to do so. You’ll feel amazing afterwards.
