Here is Lindsay Barnes’s #SmileStory:
My name is Lindsay & I love my family, friends, awesome dog Kingston (who may as well be a human; if you've met him, you know what I mean), laughing, and making others laugh with my ridiculous sense of humor.
I graduated in 2007 from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in Hospitality because I have always loved working with people. I landed a pretty nice gig at the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas and worked in the Spa and with their Meetings & Special Events, which I loved. Sadly, the hotel closed in May 2010 and I had to find a new job…which brought me to "The Big Apple"! I transitioned from working in hotels to handling a law firm’s events & planning, which I love!
I have struggled with finding happiness throughout my life because of the situations that happen in life, but I've found so many things in my life that bring a smile to my face: whether it's a friend making me laugh, my dog being silly, seeing family, unexpectedly running into friends, creating my daily Gratitude List (my mom and I have been doing this for over a year and a half now & it really puts life into perspective!), helping a homeless person, hanging out with my baby friends at Hoboken Grace, etc. This list could go on and on; and as of late, I have been following @pupflix on good ol' Instagram and let me tell you that the cuteness overload is amazing (especially those short, stumpy Corgi legs)! I have always loved puppies, but these pictures and videos can bring tears to my eyes! Don't tell my child and favorite pup in the world, Kingston, as he might disown me! ;)
