Thank you to the lovely Sharon @ My French Country Home
for the Happy 101 Award she so thoughtfully bestowed upon me.
To me, awards are the highest compliment
and I am just 'tickled pink' when I get the nod:)
Before I move on, there is something you should know about Sharon.
She is one talented woman. British born and married to a Frenchman, she calls Normandy home along with her four children, three horses and lovely dog. She has a beautiful french country home and it is always a joy to visit her blog and peep into her daily life. What I just discovered and am remiss at not having noticed before is that she has a lovely Country Guest Cottage on her property. It looks enchanting! It is small, cozy and welcoming, everything a cottage should be. Step in and look around by following the link posted under the photo.
Now...back to the business at hand.
What makes me happy ?
the kind of happy that gets the foot tapping,
the hips swaying,
the arms waving and makes you want to do
a little slidestep to the left and slidestep to the right.
I call it a Diane Keaton moment.
There is a scene in Something's Gotta Give,
towards the end of her crying scene,
where she shimmies in her chair
with excitement over what she is writing.
That feeling is a what a happiness moment feels like to me.
My family all together, under one roof
There is nothing better!
Spending time with friends
Delights of Home:
Fresh cut grass
Flowers in bloom
and a comfortable
chair to take it all in
A meal that comes out just as I planned
(this does not happen often!)
Anticipation of the next chapter of a good book
When ideas and words come together
Pushing the PUBLISH POST button on my blog
Receiving blogging comments
After a long journey, enjoying the moment you have been waiting for
Walking and discovering life
Music that makes me want to dance
So, all these are just some of things that make me smile.
I cheated a bit and gave you twelve, the rule says 10
but what is life if you don't live a little?
The next step is to pass on the award to five friends who keep me smiling.
For those of you who know me, you will know that it is easier said then done.
I have created very long posts to include one and all in the past
I would like to do something a little different (again)
and pass it on to five people who made me smile today.
My health thanks her too!
Kittie @ The Block who sent me two thoughtful notes and is a dear sweet person for doing so.
Cheryl @ not even close to empty for leaving her first comment and allowing me to enjoy her blog.
Kerry @ A Tranquil Townhouse who is celebrating 120 readers to her blog and announced her first Giveaway
Louise @ Lou Boo who made paid me the highest compliment a few days ago which still has me smiling. She said 'You are like the big sister I never had'.
Thank you all for contributing to my Happiness Moments today !
and one more thing....
PS..in case you are wondering, yes, I probably did create a word up there...
'slidestep' just sounds good to me, it's a woman's prerogative!
