French translation:Cela a fait ma journée de vous faire sourire si facilement
Explanation:
Ther eis a grammatical mistake in your English original, a split infinitive : "...to so easily bring..."

If you have seen STAR TREK, then you may remember "to boldly go where no man has gone before" a great favourite of English teachers! Nothing should come between the "to" and the infinitive, thus "to bring a smile so easily to your face" works perfectly well.
