Believe it or not, these are street lights in Newnan, Georgia. A friend of a friend, Kristin Buck, spotted this from inside her car and snapped the photo on a cold Georgia evening, and shared it on Facebook. Kristin’s original caption in Facebook: “There’s a little happiness everywhere, you just have to look ;)”

Which is what made our mutual friend, Beth Davidson, think of this blog — which is how it wound up here.

From the Deep South to the Pacific Northwest: that’s a long way for a smiley to travel!

Thanks, Kristin and Beth, for being so open to to the world that you see smiley faces even on a cold, dark night! And thanks, too, for sharing that little bit of happiness with the rest of us! 🙂
