What a treat!

Grosgrain Lane has certainly helped to get my day off on the best foot.  She has shared this lovely award with me and nine other bloggers who brighten her day.  The rules for the award are:

  • List 10 things that make you happy (try to do one of those things today)

  • Tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day.

  • Link back to the person who tagged you.
  1. Looking at photographs of old bakeries and imagining I'll own one one day.  I just love seeing how neatly all of the pretty little tarts and scones are lined up in a glass case.
  2. Brightly colored sundresses at the start of summer when you feel those first rays of sun on your skin.
  3. Anthropologie makes me oh so happy, especially since they'll be putting one in New Orleans just in time for us to move home.
  4. Reading cookbooks.  And making an attempt to prepare the dish as the author intended it.
  5. Weekend getaways with Mark.  Whether to Charleston, Savannah, or Jacksonville, I love our little getaways!
  6. The sound of a brass band.  I love the rhythm of their drums and the sound of their horns.  It sounds like home.
  7. Travel planning.  I think this should have been the career path I chose.  I love researching every detail of a place we visit and creating detailed excel schedules of where we're going and how we can get there.
  8. Our life in Beaufort.  I love walking the dogs to the dog park, and I love driving in Mark's car with the top down on a Spring day and feeling like the water is all around you.  I love the lowcountry.
  9. My friends.  How'd I get so lucky to have the world's best friends.  Old friends, new friends, blog friends, you all make every day better!
  10. My family.  There aren't enough words to say how much I love my family.  But I do with all my heart.
While I love all of the blogs I read, here are ten that I have found make me smile each and every day!
  1. Cherry Blossoms
  2. Brown Eyed Belle 
  3. LSU Melanie (who sent me just the world's sweetest package yesterday - THANKS!!!)
  4. Pinot after Playdates
  5. Short Southern Mamma
  6. Pink Preppy Lilly Lover
  7. Lisa's Yarns
  8. Vineyard Vogue
  9. B is for...
  10. Kitchen Bellicious
I love reading all of your blogs, so the list should really be as long as my blogroll, but this is just a good mix of those old and new blogs that have inspired me recently.

PS - check out my joint venture blog with my three dear friends at threerightsandaleft.
