The Happiness Tag

I received a wonderful surprise today when I was notified that I’d been nominated for The Happiness Tag by my creative and inspiring friend and fellow blogger, Judy from Edwina’s Episodes.  Judy expressed in her nomination that my blog “always cheers her up.”  I was touched by her lovely gesture and compliment.  I was also happy to hear that my efforts have a positive impact on others.  Thank you so much, Judy.


Here are the rules:


Five things that make you happy.

Five songs that make you happy.

Five bloggers that make you happy and notify them of the nomination.


Here are five things that make me happy:


  1. Being with the people I love.

  2. Helping others—people and animals.

  3. Green Hill Farm and all of its sweet critters.

  4. Learning and experiencing new things: travel, art, languages, food, wine.

  5. Dancing!! 🙂


Here are a few of the songs that make me happy:







I enjoy interacting with all of the bloggers I have had the good fortune to meet; however, I can only nominate five of you.  Here are the five bloggers whose posts always make me smile:


Melody–So charming and sweet and prepares the most divine meals.

Becky–An expert on Champagne and everything in good taste.

Laura–Authentic, smart, inspiring, funny, and probably one of the best moms around.

Robin–Warm and creative.  You’ll love her perspective on life and her wonderful photos.

Anna–A beautiful and creative spirit—Anna’s blog is full of everything lovely and wholesome.


I’m so thankful to know all of you and be a part of this fantastic community of people!

    • Hi Becky, Sorry for the delay! First ho to iTunes and purchase music you want. Next while working on your post, click on “add media.” Then click on “create audio playlist.” Your music should transfer. You may need to delete numbers to clean up title of music, etc. Next, insert into post. If you have any issues, just send me a message. Hope this helps!


  3. The old expression of better late than never applies to my missing this wonderful and amazing gift of happiness, Tonya. Thanks and congratulations dear. I will post. . . Very soon!
