101 Blog Awards.

This week has started off very well!  Not only is it a short work week (YEAH!!!) but I have also started it on the right foot by going to the gym for a fantastic cardio workout.  To top it all off I arrive at work to find out I was nominated for the 101 Blog Award by the wonderful and talented Erica Cook at Moth Design! What an honour!  When you have a moment, check  out her blog.  It's a gem!  

I must now list 10 things that make me happy and then pass along to 10 other blogs. 
  1. My husband Ryan.  I don't know what I would do without him.  He's the most wonderful, caring, funny and down-to-earth man you'll ever meet. 
  2. My family!  Everyone is included - parents, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful support system and feel very loved everyday of my life. 
  3. Good friends you can depend on.  I have the best friends anyone could ask for.  We can laugh together and cry together.  They are always there for me.
  4. Travelling makes me very happy!  I love the feeling of sitting on a plane with the excitement in your gut just before take-off.  A good road trip or train trip is equally as fun.  The anticipation of discovering something new is a wonderful feeling.
  5. Red wine makes me happy.  :) 
  6. Blogging.  I love it!  It's an addiction - both reading and writing.  It has opened up my world to so many new people and opportunities
  7. Tulips.  They are simple and gorgeous!  Love all the colours they come in. 
  8. Our new house!  :) 
  9. Everything to do with patio and cottage season... otherwise known as the summer!!  The smell of meat cooking on the bbq, lying on the dock at the cottage and breathing in the fresh summer air, freshly cut grass, hot summer nights on the patio drinking with friends and/or family, driving with the windows down...  I could go on and on...
  10. Reality TV!  I know it's very frivolous but I love to watch it. 
I nominate the following to receive this award because I absolutely love their blogs.  You must check out their blogs for delicoius tid-bits of design advice and pics. 
Moth Design - It's one of my favourite new blogs!
BlueLabel Bungalow
AK-Magnolia House
Rambling Renovators - first Canadian blog love!
Just Beachy

  1. Thanks for the award, you are so sweet!! Going to check out more of your blog now- I love what I see already!!!

  2. Dear Sarah,
    First of all...congrats on being nominated for the 101 blog award!!! And I am honored that you thought of my blog to nominate! A big thank you!
    I have just made a little change to my blog and purchased the rights to
    There are two days left until the entire site and all that goes with it get "moved" as they have told me. Other wise, nothing really is changing. Just a more formal address, one that I now own. The other thing I have found is that there are so many more custom posting options. As you likely noticed the change in my blog page style. (I hope you like it) Anyway, that is the reason you couldn't see all the pics on my last post. You'll have to type in my new address to see it for now. Then in a couple days, you just can continue to visit me like you normally do. Hope this didn't cause too much trouble...both for you and me.!?!
    Have a great day! AK
