Smiling Today

*Afternoon Drink*

The colors in this photo remind me of Christmas today.  I took it while visiting Washington last summer.  My sister had just given this pretty tree an afternoon drink, and I caught a picture of the lovely water dripping from it's branches.  Simple things like this make me smile : )

Something else that is making me smile today is a kind new friend.  My Spot of Sunshine was sweet enough to award me with this.....

By accepting this award I will complete the following:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded me. 
  2. Share 8 things about myself. 
  3. Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that I have recently discovered. 
  4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards.
OK, so 8 things about myself that come to mind as of late.....
  1. Castle is my favorite TV show right now.  He makes me laugh in every single episode.
  2. I remember things in pictures.  Like a movie title by it's poster, part of a trailer, or DVD cover.
  3. Ryan and I go out for ice cream like 3 days a week.
  4. I love the first Twilight movie best.  Growing up 40 minutes from Forks, it reminds me of what it felt like to be in high school and live there.
  5. I constantly buy maiden hair ferns, but every time they whither away and die.  You'd think I'd stop buying them, but they're soooo pretty!!!
  6. I am in love with technology.  If I could I'd have a remote for my front door.
  7. When I was a girl all my pets were cat, dog, pony and horse.....and not on purpose either.  it just happened like that.
  8. Scrapbooking and creating art is my form of meditation.  It takes me to that really great place.  I try to practice some form of it everyday.
And here are 8 lovely blogs I've recently discovered and have been enjoying.....
  1. Moon In My Garden  
  2. Little Corner of Ania
  3. Get lost in the wood with Miss Deerest
  4. The Living Room Floor
  5. Made with Love
  6. Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno
  7. Eat Drink Chic
  8. Hello Sandwich
Each one of these blogs is different and inspiring to me.....hope you enjoy them too!
Well, I'm off to put up some Christmas decorations, and add cider and mulling spices to simmer in my crock pot....yummy!!!  Have fun this weekend!
