The Happy 101 Award for Blogging

I got an email this weekend from http://michaelinhiskitchen.blogspot.com with the great award.
I’m supposed to list 10 things that make me happy and 10 great websites.

Thanks Michael for your recognition.  It’s so appreciated.

Here goes..

10 things that make me the happiest:

My family.  It took a long time to get to where I am in life and I was able to get there with great help from my family.

Craig.  He’s been a wonderful part of the growing process in life.  And I hope we get to continue to grow and learn more each day.

Grandkids.  Having Brooklyn and Caleb in my life full time and helping them grow has been more than words can express.   Watching them learn to succeed in life and make changes at such a young age is so gratifying.

My doggies.  Coco and Clyde can always put a happy smile on my face in any situation.  They are true unconditional lovers!

Friends.  Having friends that you are close to makes life so much easier!

Techie tools.  I love my computer and phone.  Love to keep up to date on the newest!!

Cooking.  I love to cook.  I’ve tried my hand at baking and have had some luck with that as well.  Cooking brings a great satisfaction.

Making new friends online.  Having a website and sharing cooking/baking ideas and the fun you’ve had is so rewarding.  Being able to share and meet new people is so fun!

Reading.  I love to read.  It’s similar to cooking.  It gives you a sense of relaxation.  Yes, cooking does that for me.  I love being able to read a book and escape life for a little while.

My home.  I love being a newlywed homeowner.  It’s such a big change from renting an apartment.  Every time I pull into the driveway I am so grateful I have a place to call my own.  One in which I can grow with Craig, Brooklyn, Caleb and the puppies.

My 10 foodie websites I love!
