Beauty tips

Smile often. Smile hard.

“Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.” ~Mark Twain, Following the Equator

I’m smiling because I love this song and I think I love the video just as much.

I loved it so much I’ve added it to my MP3 player for the drive to work today.  But first I am going to stop and vote, and if that’s not something to smile about, well I don’t know what is.

What are you smiling about today?

  1. What a voice! I’ll have to ask Rick if he’s a bass or baritone…or both…what range.

    • Yes — beautiful voice, cute as a button to boot. 🙂 I love the dancing in this, especially the first segment; Mom & Dad danced like that and she loved to twirl and so do I 🙂 MJ

  2. I love that song, but I haven’t yet seen the video. Going to watch it after I post this comment. What am I smiling about today? As always, I’m smiling at the thought of my family, and today: I’m smiling about this gorgeous weather we’re having!
    Enjoy your Tuesday!

  3. I’m back – that is a delightful video!!! Love it! (We once saw Josh Turner in concert with Brooks & Dunn.)

    • Oooh – I am so glad you like it .. and I’m envious that you saw him AND Brooks & Dunn. Neon Moon is one of my favorite songs of theirs. Cheers! MJ

  4. I’m smiling–that’s for sure. Love the song. Love the voice. Love Josh. And by the way, what a wonderful smile on the beautiful woman in the photo. Great face! I also love your title. Hope you have a great day, MJ!

  5. Thanks for the dance…….:-).

  6. I love that song! You’re wonderful, MJ!

  7. Morning MJ….love the song too and so very true:) I am smiling today because the weather is nice with good sunshine….and Minnie is curled up next to me:) Thanks for sharing the song!

    • Aww … sweet Minnie all tucked in. What a lucky kitty 🙂 I hope you got out into the sunshine .. and danced! MJ

      • I did but now Minnie has a bladder infection…I will take her to the vet in the morning…she seems to feel ok…so of course I am worrying…she will be 17 on Sunday.

      • wow -17? Give that sweet girl a (tender) hug from me, will ya? MJ

  8. Fun song, MJ, and fun too to see fashion through the decades. 😉 I’m smiling because I got to skip the cast and go straight to a boot that I can take off. Last night was the first time in three weeks my right leg wasn’t wrapped up like a mummy. Can’t dance yet, though.

    • I agree; the fashion was great fun to watch. Wow! That’s great news on your leg … sounds like progress to me!! Cheers & Happy Healing to you, MJ

  9. Such a happy post. And I absolutely love the quote, MJ!
    Now let’s all just dance 😀

  10. I have a new favorite song!!

  11. Why don’t we all just smile? Love it – you always have something inspirational to add to my day.

  12. i love the theme and header and josh turner song, he being the first concert my husband ever took me to. actually, it was blake shelton; josh turner opened. but i was in love with that deep voice!

    • Oh yeah, that voice … Hubbs has a deep bass voice like that. The first time he ever spoke I think the ground shook a little. Heh heh 🙂 I loved that header photo – somedays we’re the hound and other days we’re the fox!! 🙂 MJ

  13. Oh yeah, that’s a good one! I love Josh Turner. Have you heard Time is Love?

    And why am I smiling today? I’m just having a good week! 🙂

    • I haven’t heard it but I surely will go find it – thanks, Terri! I am glad you are having a good week — whee!!! MJ

  14. Hey, I did my civic duty today by going in for jury duty! And although I was ultimately excused, the experience did make me smile! ~ Sheila

    I have presented you with (sigh) another award..the Sunshine Award come see today’s post…

    • Thank you, Coop, that’s very kind of you. I’ve actually won it and posted about it, I guess I need to put it on my footer, too. Thanks so much for thinking of me 🙂 MJ

  16. Love Josh Turner’s voice and have a couple of his songs in my iTunes. Thanks for sharing the fun video.

  17. I like the title: Beauty tips. I was expecting lipstick advice, or wrinkle cream ads. Then I just saw “Smile often. Laugh hard.” It’s so true! We are all beautiful when we’re smiling and laughing. Oh, and the video was good, too. I’m not familiar with the singer or the song, but I like it.

  18. Fabulous advise, great song… I’m smiling cuz I have less fat on my knees, even though I feel like I’ve been run over by a semi 🙂
