“I’ve Reached My Ultimate Happiness”: This Girl Just Won Free Pizza for a Year and She’s STOKED

Pizza is my favorite food.

But my deeply ingrained love for this delectable dish can’t touch the passion held by self-appointed “Pizza Queen” Emily O’Keefe.

The 20-year-old Canadian student recently won a giveaway hosted by her local Domino’s.

She received 104 free pizza vouchers — enough for two pizzas a week for the next year.

And She Is Really, Really Stoked About It…

Since she’s living paycheck to paycheck, winning this contest meant a LOT to her.

“I’ve described it as the happiest I’ve ever felt and that I no longer need to get married because I’ve reached my ultimate happiness,” she told CBC News.

She expanded on her answer in an interview with Buzzfeed, saying:

My idea of ultimate happiness has always been the feeling you get when you’re at a big party with all of your friends and family celebrating something you all love. Which I always thought would be my wedding.

I can now have a little pizza party every week with a few friends and treat them to some ‘za. And I can do this every week for the rest of the year.

That’s better than a wedding in my opinion.

How cute is that? (Though, she adds, she still hopes to get married eventually — but her wedding has big shoes to fill, having to “top a year of free pizza in [her] heart.”)

As Penny Hoarders, we love when people get excited about saving money, and this girl’s enthusiasm about sharing her free food with her loved ones is adorable and contagious…

And makes me want to go get pizza right now.
