ven when I have fallen off the blog wagon (much like now) I try to make sure I take time for Ten Things. Emmy hosts at the end of every month and it's a great opportunity to remember what the top reasons to smile were that month. Thank you, Emmy, for keeping me on track and helping me remember that there's always a reason to smile.
