My first award...

This is too cool...I opened up  my blog this morning to do a new post and found that I had won my first blog award!  This is the Happy 101 award given to me by Sandi at A New York Foodie.  I want to send a big thank you Sandi's way :)  The purpose of these awards is to show appreciation for our fellow bloggers, and recognize the blogs that we keep coming back to; as such, this award comes with a few stipulations:
The rules of accepting this award are as follows:
-Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
-Pass the award onto 10 bloggers.
- Link the nominees within your post.
- Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
-Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
-Lists things that make you happy.

Things that make me happy
1. My husband and children, they mean the world to me...
2. My friends, the good ones are hard to come by and truly precious...
3. Good food...making it, and most importantly, eating it...
4. Good books of all sorts...
5. My little corgi girl Shelby...
6.Making a meaningful contribution to the world, however small...

Now for the Happy 101 Award, I congratulate the following sites:

4. Dana at Fleur de Sel
6.  Memoria at Mangio de Sola
7.  Elly at elly says ropa!

9.  Madelyn at Karma-Free Cooking

Thanks again Sandi, and I hope everyone takes a moment to check out these blogs, I think you will find the time spent well worth it.


  1. Thank you so much for the award! What a perfect way to end my great day! I love knowing that my blog is useful to others! It makes all the time spent on it so well worth while! The last couple of weeks have been so hectic and this is just the way to start a new week! I can't wait to do it tomorrow! Thanks again! :-)


  2. hi mary, sorry it took me forever to get back here. i'm very flattered you thought of me, thank you for your kindness. i very much hope this won't offend you, but i decided from the beginning to not get involved with giving/receiving awards. if you accept one, it snowballs and i simply don't have the time. i included a little explanation on the blog, but a lot of people miss it. i'll have to make it more visible. i hope you understand, and thanks again for the thought!

  3. Dana- fair enough, but please accept my compliments on your blog, it is truly on of my favorites.

    Teauna and Memoria- you are very welcome, I love your blogs :) And Memoria- I apologize for not spelling your name incorrectly- I don't know how to get the accents (or tildes) on here :(

  4. On Facebook:
