1,000 Reasons to Smile!
Have you ever heard of the 1,000 Awesome Things blog? Well if you haven't you need to check it out! I have been following this blog since the end of 2009 and I absolutely love it! The blog is a countdown from 1,000 of awesome things. It is currently on #280 which happens to be "When little kids get really, really excited" The author includes pictures and sometimes videos to display the awesome things. I also think he is an awesome writer. Here are a few reviews about the blog:
“1000 Awesome Things might be described as optimism for the rest of us. Sunny without being saccharine, it’s a countdown of life’s little joys that reads like a snappy Jerry Seinfeld monologue by way of Maria Von Trapp.” – The Vancouver Sun
“Strangely heartwarming… perfect for rainy days.” – The New Yorker
“Honors the little joys of life.” – USA Today
Here are a few of my favorite "awesome things" that the blog has highlighted:
# 973- Sleeping in new bed sheets
# 941- The Universal Fry-Sharing Policy
# 937- The smell of rain on a hot sidewalk
#925- Watching The Price is Right when your home sick
# 895- Getting something with actual handwriting on it in the mail
# 858-The other side of the pillow
# 828-Remembering what movie that guy is from
# 769- When the thing you were going to buy is already on sale
I could go on and on. Check it out, what are some of your favorites?
