One of the most wonderful things about the internet is the ability to reach out to others. Whether this is in blog format, social networking, groups, etc. It has become a haven for many who are seeking support and/or guidance from others who share a similar story. That was our motivation for starting the blog and in a short amount of time, I have already made a cyber friend. She writes “Laughing at Chaos” and is listed on our blogroll. Jen has an amazing sense of humor and she recently ‘tagged’ us for this ‘award’. So it is my turn to tell you what makes me happy.

Along with the award comes . . . R-U-L-E-S.  Here they are:

A. List 10 things that make you happy.
B. Try to do at least one of them today.
C. Tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day.
D. For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you then link back to my blog and create your own “makes you happy” list.

This is a good exercise for me right now because SAD has set in and the week after a vacation in FL is a difficult time to deal with 14 additional inches of snow. (I know the mid Atlantic got hit harder, but this is about ME.)

  1. Family dinner. Sitting down and talking at dinnertime with DH & EE.
  2. Vacation and planning for the next family trip. Next up? Road trip to Washington DC.
  3. Scrap and Spa – It is a heavenly little oasis and I can’t wait to go back.
  4. Texting…it’s just fun.
  5. Coming home and having a dog who is so genuinely happy to see you.
  6. Having said dog follow me around and demand attention.
  7. When DH compliments me – especially when he knows I think he is full of it and he does it anyway.
  8. The support of my wonderful friends.
  9. A good massage and chiropractic adjustment.
  10. Seeing EE smile. When he is genuinely happy – his smile could light up the whole world 🙂

In the tradition of this award, here are the rules I must oblige by in order to pass it on:

– Put the logo on your blog or within your post. 
– Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
– Link the nominees within your post. 
– Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog. 
– Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.

I do not follow many blogs yet – so I cannot pass it along, but I am very touched that we were included in Jen’s list and it felt good to think of happiness for a few minutes and I think that was precisely the point.
