Spreading the Love

Back in November when Fresh Slow Cooking was born, I didn’t know that blog awards existed! Now I am lucky enough to be part of a supportive community that shares a love for food and story telling. Most surprising is the connection I feel with fellow bloggers whom I’ve never met in person. I’ve painted a picture of who they are from reading their posts and comments. I learn from them as they tell stories of their latest adventures in the kitchen and in life – making me smile and sometimes even laughing out loud. This week a pair of fellow bloggers brightened my days by giving me these awards:

The I Love Your Blog award was given to me by Devaki.

Both Jenn and Devaki awarded the Circle of Friends and Happy 101 awards to me:

Here are 10 Things That Make Me Happy:

  1. My husband; the most intelligent, patient and goofy guy I’ve ever known.
  2. My family; supportive parents, a protective big brother and silly little nieces.
  3. My friends; real life and virtual because they make me laugh.
  4. Dancing in the kitchen.
  5. Scruffing up our dog.
  6. Laying in the grass on a sunny day.
  7. Finally getting a conclusive result in the lab.
  8. ‘Tweaking’ a recipe and still having it work.
  9. Reading a good book.
  10. Endless possibilities.

Now I pass these awards on to my fellow bloggers.

The Circle of Friends Award goes to:

The I Love Your Blog Award goes to everyone I’ve listed above (that’s why I read them)… plus more recent discoveries:

…and the Happy 101 Award goes to everyone I’ve listed above because I love to read what makes bloggers happy :)

If you have time to participate, this is what you need to do:

Copy and paste the award on your blog. List who gave the award to you and use a link to his/her blog (or hyperlink). List 10 things that make you happy. Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award.
