Disclosure: I have partnered with Cricket Wireless as a 2014 Blog Ambassador. All opinions are my own.

Smiling. I’m all for it. All of the time. For no good reason. Just because. I love to smile and to make other people smile. Life is too complicated already to not try and find the humor in every situation. I think that’s something I’ve learned from my family. No matter the odds, we always manage to laugh at our current or past predicaments.

Maybe that’s because of the old saying, mejor reir que llorar. 

And, in fact, I think that’s true. You feel much better after laughing at yourself than you do when you cry over spilled milk. With that idea in mind, I tried to capture a few of the smiles around me that always seem to brighten my day.

My nephew Allan. Even with that cast he’s sporting on his little arm, he’s all smiles.

My niece Sophia. She’s not always smiling, but when she does… well, you see that beautiful face 🙂

And, of course, Edgar is always ready for a little silliness like his mamá.

This post was inspired by Cricket’s Something To Smile About campaign. They’re hoping their nationwide coverage and convenient month to month plans will make a lot of folks smile. Meanwhile, they’ve already inspired me to appreciate the little moments of happiness around me every single day.
