Tag – 10 of My Favourite Feelings
The tag has its origin from Xandria‘s blog. In her own words,
“I think if there’s one thing that this quarantine has taught me it’s that I’ve become so much more appreciative of the simple things in life. I came across a couple YouTube videos called “My Favourite Feelings” and I absolutely loved it.”
The motive of this tag is to reflect the happy little things in our life and appreciate them.
All you have to do is tag Xandria in the post – (She wants to know what the chain of nominees put down) and list out 10 of your favourite feelings! In her words again, “No pressure to do this, just thought it would be fun, and something different”.
