2.) Getting genuinely kind comments from, making friends with, and helping, bloggers – So many of you are so kind and helpful. Your constant kindness and friendship makes me so happy!

4.) Being around friends and family – Being around friends and family, especially those who show love and support means the world to me!

2.) Paint It Black (the Vanessa Carlton version) – While this song isn’t exactly happy, I love dancing to it!

3.) Wind It Up by Gwen Stefani – Another song I love dancing to!
