And so the tagging epidemic strikes me again. This time I've been tagged not once, but twice. The first by Mireyah Wolfe and the second by Crystal Posey, so I guess I have to list ten things that make me happy. Here goes.
(Oh--and these are in random order BTW)
#10) Music. I can't write without it. Can't go a day without it. Some songs can't help but put a smile on my face--even if I know they're terrible, like this one. Some songs can't help but move me, like this one. And some songs can't help but inspire me, like this one.
#9) My cats. I know I have too many of them--and some of them shed all over my house. But they can crack me up--especially when they get frisky. And there's pretty much nothing that will get me out of a bad mood faster than rubbing a soft kitty tummy.
#8) Drawing. I so rarely have time to draw anymore, so I appreciate it even more when I have time to do it. And I'm always thrilled when my hands are still able to do it.
#7) Cupcakes. Any flavor. Any time. They're just the happiest dessert.
#6) Writing. Yes, it's also a LOT of work. But when the words are flowing and I get in that zone when it's almost like the story is writing itself? Well, there's not a whole lot else that can compare to that.
#5) I know this is gonna sound lame, but...eyeshadow. I <3 it so much. And, not only is it fabulous in any color, but it's how I found one of my CPs. Sara and I bonded on Twitter over our mutual affection for Sephora. :)
#4) Books. All kinds. All styles. I love them. I love the feel of them. The sound of them. And of course, the stories inside. Sadly, I tend to buy too many of them, so my TBR pile is out of control. But I'll get to them. And I'll fall in love with all of the stories they contain.
#3) My family. They've been there for me through so many ups and downs. They've supported me as I've chased so many impossible dreams. I have the most awesome parents ever.
#2) Meeting other writers--at all different stages in their careers. I love meeting my favorite authors at signings. (I'm going to an AWESOME signing today. So excited!) But I also love getting to know you guys, either through your posts, or through your comments on my posts. And I especially love reading your comments. It makes me feel so special that you guys take the time to leave a comment to tell me what you think of what I've posted.
#1) My husband. Even though he makes me vlog, he really is the most caring, supportive, wonderful person ever, and not a day goes by that I'm not SUPER thankful he didn't give up on me (cause I...um...turned him down the first time he asked me out. And the second time. And the...well...let's just say it took me about six months to say yes. I am very lucky that he was persistent). I definitely would've given up on my draft without him.
That took a lot longer than I thought it would
Now, I think I'm supposed to tag other people at this point, to keep the tagging war going. But I've been so behind on my blog hopping lately that I have no idea who has and hasn't been tagged. So I'm going to play it safe and say this: If you haven't been tagged (and want to post about ten things that make you happy) consider yourself officially tagged by me. :)
Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
