A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Smile

Sue at A Word in Your Ear has landed on a very happy word for this week’s challenge, SMILE! If you’re interesting in joining this fun challenge or see some other beautiful entries, please head over HERE! Its probably my most favorite thing to do.  Although in the process of searching up pictures in all my 20GB of photos, I learned that sometimes I have the most weirdest smiles. Although it would be boring if I only featured myself.  So here we go…some of the best smiles are to see them on the faces in their normal spontaneous moments that I captured.

My last dog, a fluffy Chow Chow!

My old boy here back in 2009.  Ever since he was a little puppy, he’s always been my best friend and always one to greet me with his big smile.  Doesn’t looking at him just make you want to smile? Man, don’t I miss seeing that!

Disneyland Hong Kong with Chip n Dale

Disneyland is a place of wonder and fantasy.  Can you tell I was totally ecstatic to have my picture with Chip ‘n Dale? I love these guys.  I think they felt it because they both gave me a huge kiss on my cheek soon after this picture was taken! Fun times! 🙂

Kids playing in the backyard

This was a totally spontaneous shot that even I had forgotten about.  Kids playing in the backyard during a birthday party.  Doesn’t her smile just warm your heart? This little girl is not related to me but is one of my boyfriend’s friends’ little girl.  The innocent smiles of children are always something that makes us happy.  We wish for their smiles to stay that way with pure joy and with nothing to ever have to worry about.

Relaxing next to rapids

This is a completely natural shot.  I didn’t even know it was taken till I got back home and checked the pictures.  Water is what calms and destresses me. This place in Rawdon, Quebec is a little part of the rapids right next Dorwin Falls.  Once I sit here, I never want to leave because this gives one of the most natural and relaxed smiles I can possibly give off.

Silly poses

I think by now you’ve realized my best friends are some of the best joys in my life. These silly things hopefully will bring out as much of a smile to me as it does for you! Sometimes, we don’t have to be too serious and just let ourselves have fun, right? RIGHT! 🙂

  1. Kim – The smiles may be weird to you, but i am sure to those around you they are uplifting to witness. The fact that we generate enough happiness in others to make them smile back when we offer ours tells us that we have improved that moment in their day if not the whole time we pend with them. Happiness can be fleeting for some but if we help add to their happiness quotient we can know we are making that differnce in their life.
