A Happy Guest Post by Molly

I'm so excited to have Molly from Blonde Out Loud guest blogging on ze blog today. She's a great writer, has a great blog, and you'll see from this post... is a great person. :) Check out her blog, I know you'll enjoy it.

Hi Everybody!

I’m Molly from Blonde Out Loud and will be entertaining you today while Miss Tammy is enjoying herself on the East Coast. She’s actually only about 90 minutes from me since I’m living it up here in Connecticut!
Tammy asked me to write about things that make me happy and I’m more than happy {I’m so funny!} to oblige!
Let’s start with my fur nieces and nephews.
Fur babies
I don’t have any pets of my own but I tend to rent them from my friends and family when they want to go off and do other things. Rusty is my parents’ Miniature Dachshund. He is one hot hotdog dog. Luna and Daisy are my cousin’s labbies. They are loves. There’s nothing better than going to her house and they come running to me smiling. And then there is the Ollie bear my adopted child. My friends Meg & Jeff go on trips and I get to spend day after day with this snuggle monster. These pups make my heart happy!

Speaking of friends and family!
Friends and family
These are just five people that make me a very happy girl! I wish that I had a million pictures to share with you of all of the people I love but these are a few of my favorite pictures. Meg & Leah have been good friends of mine for nearly 10 years. We all worked together at a local outdoor outfitter and became fast friends and have been a source of some of the best times of my life.
Of course, my parents are my biggest champions and have been with me through thick and thin. Most recently, I’m glad to have celebrated my graduation from business school this past May.

Miss Julia is someone I never expected to become such a good friend. She’s actually the wife of another wonderful friend of mine, Mikey. The last few years have been the most difficult I have had to endure and she has been an endless support for me.

Finally, there are three causes that I put a lot of time and effort into:
Non Profits
Petit Family Foundation – After my own home invasion, I kept in contact with Dr. William Petit, a local man that lost his wife and two daughters to a very terrible attack. I’ve devoted myself to participate in the Foundation’s annual 5k walk/run and raise money for the cause.

Kisses From Katie – My friend and former co-worker, Alan, and his wife lost their baby girl Katie at the way too young age of 5 months to Hypo plastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). They started programs to provide support to families in 5 hospitals across the country with critically ill children. When Katie past, it broke our hearts and many of us think about her every day.

BE STRONG for Dan Campaign – While not exactly a charity, the BE STRONG for Dan Campaign was started by my friend and colleague Joe and me in support of our other friend and colleague. Dan was seriously injured in a plane crash this summer. Since then we have been making BE STRONG for Dan Bands and providing ongoing support for Dan, his girlfriend and their families.

All three organizations make me happy and grateful for everything that I have and remind me that the little things we do can make a difference in the lives of others.

What things make you happy?
