My First Blogging Award!

Whoo-hoo, my first blogging award! Thanks, Stacy!

Now, although I don't have to wear high heels to accept this Happy 101 Award, I do have homework: come up with a list of 10 happy thoughts. (If only all my homework had been this easy...)

So many to choose goes:

1) My husband/best friend

2) Walking on the beach, searching for shells

3) Reading something that yanks me in and won't let go

4) Writing something that yanks me/readers in and won't let go

5) Watching the tortoises roam around the courtyard (it's safe for them, don't worry!)

6) Yellow daisies in a purple glass vase

7) When my little nephew says, "I love you, Aunt Maddie."

8) A hot, sweet-scented bubble bath followed by the softest pajamas ever

9) My name next to a story I'm particularly proud of writing

10) The sound of my husband laughing so hard he cries

What a wonderful way to start a Friday! Here's to a great weekend everyone!


  1. Great list, Madeline! Ooh, I love beachcombing! (But I have to travel to do it, not many shells in the flat parts of Indiana.)This is fun. I like getting to know you better. Happy Friday!

  2. Thanks, Stacy! I liked your list, too. Mine was fun to write but hard to post - see, I'm trying to come out of my shell... :)
