  1. Congratulations! You deserve it :)

  2. Bonjour Natasha,
    COngratulations you deserve this Happy Award. Your list is great - #10 was nice, it's important to be proud of your country. I'm an U.S. expat in France, but I'll always be an American! Of course, loving your family was best and your new kitchen is beautiful.
    Sorry to run on here...
    Have a fabulous Friday!

  3. Yay!
    Natasha's back! I've missed you, but now that I see your glorious vacation, I'm so happy to see you took a break from blogging and your friends. This, my dear, is a great reason to be absent from the scene! The photos look like you have a great time, shared memories with your family and certainly by the looks of it, ate well :) YUM!
    All of those dishes looked like things I would have chosen to eat...especially the molten chocolate cake!
    But, I'm glad you're back. That was so sweet of you to tell me I brighten your day! You have made my day a whole lot brighter with this post. I see I'm in good company with Libbie and her sister, Kate, who are our mutual friends. Way to go girls!! :) I will have to go visit your other picks and see how much sunshine they exude! Looking for some brightness this dull winter up here in the Northern Hemisphere!
    Thanks for passing on the Happy 101 to me. I will have to post in the next few days who makes my day bright, other than you of course:)
    Enjoy the sunshine!
