As a person who adds a :) smiley prolifically to her e-mails, texts and Facebook interactions, I became enamored when I learned that someone had published a children's book on the subject of finding "smileys", The Smiley Book of Colors by Ruth Kaiser.
And, even better, if I uploaded a "smiley picture" to the author's website, I could help a good cause, Operation Smile, a charity that benefits children with facial deformities. For anyone interested, the website is Spontaneous Smiley: http://www.spontaneoussmiley.com/ and you can share your smiley picts under the tab, "Share Your Smiley".
Well, being a self-proclaimed feel-good blog, I had to grab my camera and go on a "smiley" search.
Plus, check out them out on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/awdry/# on the board entitled "Feel-good Fun Stuff ".
Smile! (Also, it happens to be picture day for my twins. I hope they have their smiley faces on, too!)
If you upload a smile, I'd love to see what you've found! Add it to my Author Page at:
