Top 10 Things That Have Made Me Smile

to-smile |

Hello mes amis. It looks like I’m back into my same old habit of being MIA for months on end here at All The Amusement. For that, I am sorry. Life just has its way of getting busy, and usually the first thing to fall off my to-do list is writing. In order to get back on track, I’ve decided to do a really light-hearted ’round-up’ post of sorts to tell you about the top 10 things that have made me smile since I last wrote:  Continue reading “Top 10 Things That Have Made Me Smile”

It is easy to get caught up in daily life, and the challenges, struggles and turmoil that sometimes accompany it. Often times you might not feel like life is the gift that you hear everyone touting about.
