Wow I cannot help but to be smitten with all of these wonderful awards!!!! It really is a great feeling to get recognition and feel appreciated within a community of such exceptionally talented writers. It is equally as delightful to pass on the awards and give opportunity for new faces to show up on new blogs, creating new connections. It feels so nice to  be able to show appreciation to the people who grace my computer screen with their honesty and heartache, humor and insight, and who enlighten my life through their experiences, creativity, art, photographs, and written words. 

Thank you Miss OverThinker from Life Uncensored for this Happy Award! I am so happy that you are back!
The way it works is this: list 10 things that make you happy and then pass this award to 10 bloggers that make you happy.

1. Really good coffee with Italian Sweet Cream creamer. MMMMMM

2. All the adorable affection I get from my 2 year old, Victorya and seeing her older brother and sister smile :)

3. Still getting butterflies around Bryson and feeling the security of our love

4. Cuddling with my Himalayan kitty, Nala-ago, or playing with our big white fluffy dog, Belle

5. Walking barefoot in mud, or water, or muddy water, especially when it is in the warm rain

6. The right song playing at the right time, creating the soundtrack for life

7. Forever friends. The kind that you can lose touch for years and when you meet again, you pick up like there was no time lost and your friendship is always growing, trusting, and beautiful, no matter the time in between encounters or the miles in between you.

8. Homecooked meals shared with friends

9. Blogging and all of the things it has become for me and the friends I have found because of it

10.Any picture that has my Grandpa in it

and now for 10 bloggers that make me happy!

You all touch my life in some way and you bring me joy and happiness in my everyday life. I appreciate you all! There are quite a few happy awards going around, so if you are receiving doubles, don't do awards, or just don't have time, please do not feel obligated in any way to repost and pass along these awards. 

Roxy at Woman of Essence passed along the Happy 101 to me. Thanks Roxy! The rules of receiving this award is to link it back to the presenter and pass it on to at least three other bloggers and list 10 things that make you happy. Of course I already did 10, but I am full of gratitude and have so many things that make me happy, so here are 10 more.

1. The smell of cut grass
2. Playing Mafia Wars on Facebook
3. Taking pictures
4. Taking classes
5. Babies
6.Seeing charity in action 
7. Fixing something
8. Tiramisu
9. Moscato 
10. Seeing new places

and now some more bloggers that make me happy!
