You know what’s better than a nice thing happening to you? A nice unexpected thing happening to you! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the super cute blog Peace, Love & Pretty Things honored me with the Happy 101 Blog Award! Thanks Gina and Kim! 🙂 Basically, it’s a pay it forward kind of thing. You get the award and then you have to do three things:
1. Thank the person that awarded you this in the new post.
2. Name 10 things that make you happy.
3. Pass the award on to 10 other bloggers and inform the winners.*
*AMENDMENT It’s time consuming to put together a list of 10 bloggers and inform them and all that. I’ll say to the folks I am giving this award to that if you can’t do 10 blogs, do five and say something nice to or do something nice for five strangers this week. Let’s spread the cheer online and in real life, folks!
