Happiness Is... {A Blog Hop}!

Okay, I've done it!  I've jumped into the world of blog hops, and created one that I know we will all look forward to week after week!  It's called Happiness Is... and it's a hop to share the stories, photos, food, drinks, crafts, or moments that brought joy to our lives this week!

What's it all about?

Happiness Is... is a place to link up posts (not your entire site) that made you happy this week.  It could be almost anything; we'd love to see what made you smile!  The only regulation is that it may NOT be a giveaway or review.  We'd only like to hop around to posts that will genuinely bring joy (and sorry, honey; you're review of dish detergent ain't cuttin' it). 

There aren't many rules, but there must be one or two to maintain a semblance of order.

Rule #1:  Link up a blog post about your life recently that made you happy.  It could be a photo, a story, a recipe, a craft, etc.  No reviews or giveaways.  They will be deleted.

Rule #2:  Add my "Happiness Is..." button somewhere to your post.  The html code is found in my sidebar.

Rule #3:  You don't have to follow me (because I'm not really into that whole "follow me back" thing), but if you enjoy this site and/or this hop, I'd really appreciate it if you did! 

Rule #4:  Please don't link and run.  Try to at least comment on the posts around you; it makes the whole hopping experience so much more enjoyable.

Thank you for making this hop a success and for helping spread some joy!  I had a tough week this week, with the loss of my grandfather, so I didn't have time to write up a happy post of my own.  I do have a photo of me and Em that I'm sharing with "Embrace the Camera," in which I look less than stellar and my head is chopped off, but it makes me happy to be with my baby girl. 

Next week, I promise to have a full post!  Until then, I look forward to delving into your sites and sharing in YOUR happiness!

This is my first blog hop and I have a dumb question! I linked up my post (#4) and I picked a photo when the inlinkz page asked me to, but it's not appearing. Did I do something wrong? The blue froggy is cute, but not as cute as my kids at the beach! :)

Tessa said...

Never mind.... I guess it just takes a few minutes to appear.... please ignore :) Thanks!

Sorry for your tough week, that is awful.

Mind you still a gorgous photo of you and your baby.

Happiness, always a work in progress. Something I'm looking at over at my blog at the moment too.
