Love And Happiness

Surprises are so fun!  The Brick Cottage  awarded me the Happy 101 Award. I am so flattered!
The DIY Channel has a new show called Run my Renovation and The Brick Cottage was chosen to have their attic converted into a bedroom, how exciting!

I have to list 10 things that make me happy

1. Hugs and kisses from my little love bug. Sometimes she can be stingy with them.

2. My handsome husband and the way he loves us.

3. The beach.

4. Dining al fresco. Especially fun with wine or a margarita!

Better Homes And Gardens

5. Blogs.

6. Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Macadamia ice cream. Don't try it you will become addicted like me.

7. National parks. The mountains make me happy but I'm afraid of bears.

8. Music. I love all kinds of music but classic rock is my favorite.

9. Sleeping in.

10. Gardening.
