The Happy Tag!

Howdy!

Let’s talk about happiness…

Back with another tag today! I’ll be back to the normal posts as soon as I can get some good pics of my rabbits and the other fun things I want to share.

Recently I was tagged by Evangeline to do the happy tag, so naturally I was calm on the outside “sure I’ll do it!” but on the inside I was like “YES! I’VE BEEN TAGGED! Tis an honor. A true honor. I’d like to thank Evangeline for tagging me, and most of all, Jesus, for giving me so many things to be happy about. GOODNIGHT EVERYBODY! no really, I should go to bed. It’s like midnight.” Be sure to check out Evangeline’s blog btw. It’s amazing! 

In all seriousness though, God has given me so much to be happy about, so this is gonna be a fairly long post. But thats a good thing, right?

Before I get into it I suppose I should tag someone, since that’s how tags work. Sister dearest, I tag thee. I would also like to tag anyone else who is interested in doing this tag. Comment below if you do it, I’d love to check out your blog!
