Article Excerpt:

I was thrilled to discover that Ricki over at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs had given me a "Happy 101" award!  I was honored! Ricki is one of my favorite bloggers, role models, and online friends, and I was so pleased to make her happy list.  

One thing that I had to chuckle at was that Ricki and I have a remarkable amount in common - earrings, books, writing, drawing, love of trees.  My goodness, that combined with our ACD plans, I'd say we are kindred spirits for certain!  Her blog makes me very happy, so I was honored to get an award from her.

So, how does this "Happy 101" award work?  

Here are the rules:

1. Copy the award image into a post
2. Then list 10 things that make you happy
3. Tag 10 bloggers who brighten your day
4. Put in a link to their blogs
5. Notify the award receivers
6. Award recipients must link back to sender’s blog I’m supposed to pass this along to 10 bloggers.  

Let me start by saying that this blog and all of you are totally included on this list, because you brighten my day every day!  But I thought you probably knew that already, so I figured I would give you something else to read about.  I have a lot of love in my heart, and so many things make me happy, so narrowing this list down to ten was challenging. And I'm only allowed to mention TEN blogs that make me smile? That's impossible!  there are so many more!

Boy, do I have a lot of work ahead of me...this is hard.  So, here we go.
