 I've found blogging to be such a rich and rewarding experience-writing about things that inspire me is a great creative outlet and best of all, I've made some wonderful friends along the way. That's why I was thrilled when Stephanie from La Dolce Vita awarded me the Happy 101 Blog Award-my first! Stephanie's blog is a breath of fresh air, with beautifully edited stories punctuated with her extraordinary photographs. Her recent story on Old Westbury Gardens showcases her stunning photography and should not to be missed!

The Happy 101 Blog Awards asks recipients to list their top 10 things that makes them happy-here goes:
The Ten Things That Make Me Happy

1. My family

2. Dash, family dog

3. Traveling-next Thailand?

4. A really good game of tennis (hopefully I win!)

5. Fresh flowers, especially peonies

6. Blogging- and all the new and wonderful friends I've met!

7. A afternoon walk on the beach

 8. Cocktails at sunset and the perfect mojito

9. Movie night

10. Entertaining family and friends

Here's the fun part- I now get to pass the award on to ten of my favorite blogs.  You're a witty, fun and  inspiring group and I love to read your blogs:  Red Ticking, Doxa Home, Ragland Hill Social, Hello Gorgeous, Oliveaux, Nest by Tamara, The Zhush, The Neo-Traditionalist, Chinoiserie Chic and Moth Design. Congratulations and remember to spread the love!

Thanks so much for including me in the love! I've just recently started reading some of the blogs on your list and I agree - they're great! (And mmmmmm...mojito season is almost upon us.)

Have a great weekend!

I'm so glad you liked your award - it is definitely well deserved! And I loved your happy list! I think we may have to meet in the Hamptons this summer for mojitos! And you picked some great people to pass it on to. Have a wonderful weekend.

hi every one, I'd just like to know if those roses on the first picture are painted? I really liked the effect on them, with those colors and they way they mixed with each other! Beautiful arrangement!if69

What a perfect list you did in here about things make you happy, in my case it could sound ridiculous but that's the truth my girlfriend makes me so happy because I simply need her and more when I'm alone at home because she always knows how to console me in many different ways.
