The Happiest Girl in the World & #SpreadTheKindness Link Up #35

I have been writing a lot about happiness this past week so it is only fitting that I continue with that theme for this week’s #SpreadTheKindness Link Up. But I am doing it a little bit differently than normal. I am not sharing any photos of myself (but do stop by this Friday to see a fun kimono styled for Fall). Instead, I want to introduce you all to the happiest girl in the world. Well, at least she’s the happiest girl that I have ever met. And with so much happiness contained in one human vessel, of course, kindness stands hand in hand with that. So without further adieu, let me introduce you to the happiest, kindest woman I have ever met.

Meet Jessica. She has the bubbliest personality, the most infectious smile, and eyes that tell you stories of the happiest kind. You cannot be in the same room with her and maintain a sour attitude. No way. She won’t permit it. She will say something sassy or silly or sarcastic and that sour attitude will find itself drowned in sugary sweetness.

But not only is Jessica the happiest girl in the world, but she may very well be the most driven business-minded woman I have ever met with a go-get-’em attitude and a never-take-no-for-an-answer mentality. In fact, she just moved from a very successful family-owned business, F.X. Caprara Doge, Jeep, Chrysler, RAM, to a start up marketing and advertising firm, J. Murphy & Associates Advertising. I have no doubt that whatever this woman puts her mind to, she will succeed.

She uses hashtags like #doalotofwhatyoulove, #payitforward, #hairflip, #outfitsarealwaysonpoint, and #easybreezy. Seriously, do I need to go on about the fabulous sense of humor that is exhibited by this one amazing woman? Well, of course, I do…keep reading…

Jessica also writes a lifestyle blog, Life Lover. I mean, that kind of says it all right there, doesn’t it? Her posts are chock full of her personality. You can just feel her energy coming right off the screen as you read what she writes. And she will make you laugh to the point of snorting. So if you need a little pick me up on a down day or you are just looking for a fun new blog to follow, hop on over to and I guarantee you will find yourself smiling.

I saw Jessica a few weeks ago at a BNI Upstate NY meeting and we got talking about blogging. With an infectious giggle in her voice, she blurted out, “I’m no professional blogger! I think I have 5 followers!” So I invite you all in the name of #SpreadingTheKindness to check her out and follow along! While she may not be a “professional blogger” (who really is?), she certainly has what it takes to be one!

  10. Just reading one post by Jessica cheered me up! The grumpy bartender story reminded me of an encounter with a very rude woman working behind the bar in a hotel I stayed in a couple of weeks ago. We ended up laughing about it, I refuse to be infected by the negativity these people exude!

    • Emma, thanks for stopping by! I really liked that post, too, as I have had similar encounters with grumpy bartenders as well. Who wants a grumpy bartender? Why be a bartender if you are grumpy? I don’t get it! And I won’t be infected by negativity either.
