The Happy Tag

Happy Tuesday! Today I bring you a tag all about HAPPINESS, lovingly stolen from whimsywriter3 @ Rambling Writer. This tag is so good-spirited I couldn’t pass it up. What better way to celebrate the sunny days and warm weather of May in the northern hemisphere?

I sincerely hope that reading this post makes you just as happy as writing it made me!
