    1. I am so happy that you smiled!! YAYS FOR EVERYONE. I always have to do a double-check when I see our name, too, because there are like three Olivias (I think three, anyway. maybe it's just us??) and I never know who's who!!!

  7. Froth. YES. Froth! Why have I never thought about how amazing that word sounds? And "socioeconomic" was a total game changer. Those are some seriously great words. :) Also, what does snow smell like? I have never thought about it having a distinct scent. When I have my first snow day, I will make sure to sniff it, haha! ^_^

    1. FROTH is the best of words. :) (okay, not really, but close!) and my dad uses the word "socioeconomic" a lot because his job involves working with people from varying socioeconomic backgrounds (see what I did there??) and it is SUCH a fun word to say!!

  8. EEEEEEE TAG. And a happy tag, too, which is exactly what I need. ^.^ THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA ALWAYYYSSS. AND DOWNTON ABBEY. And cinnamon froth. or froth. or cinnamon. HOW ABOUT CINNAMON FROTH, THOUGH?? bc that sounds amaze. Thank you for listing chlorine in that scents section. xD I actually seriously love the smell of chlorine because I reminds me of pools and that is just happiness. I went skating a few days ago and they had just finished washing the warm room floor with some kind of solution and it smelled like chlorine and I was just like, "MMM IT SMELLS LIKE A POOL IN HERE." and everyone was like, "..." XD

    And meep, thank you so much for tagging me, Olivia you sweetheart! Not sure when I'll be able to do it, but I'm sure I will in the future. ;) Until then I shall list a few things that are currently making me happy right now: the feeling after finishing a very long book, toast and preserves, Sharpie pens, afternoon tea with my mom, reading out loud, and thinking about video games that I want to play. xD

    Fantastic post, dear!!
    Love,
    abbiee
