Tampa woman wins national award for spreading joy

- Holly Tomlin assumes many roles in life: Wife, mother, business owner, and giver of joy.

"If it will make your day better, she goes out of her way to do it and it's just out of the goodness of her heart that she does those things," said her coworker Lizz Harmon.

Tomlin has a pretty impressive track record. She launched the Women of Influence Committee and even won businesswoman of the year.

Now she's being recognized nationally by Nothing Bundt Cakes as the person who spreads the most joy. She's one of two winners in the country.

Harmon nominated her.

They surprised her with the honor and a cake party.

"Makes you cry first of all. It's a very humbling thing," said Tomlin.
