Oh Happy Day

The lovely Trish at Preppy Pink Lilly Lover has given me the Happy 101 Award, and I couldn't be more honored! Thank you so much dear - reading your blog makes me happy!

Here are the top 10 things that make me happy:

1. Spending time with Fiancé. Whether he is by my side on the boat, singing to me and playing the guitar in our favorite spot, holding my hand as we walk into town by the water, or sharing a bottle of wine with me over dinner, this beau always puts a smile on my face.
2. The WEDDING! I have always loved everything to do with weddings, and now that I am planning my own, my love of all things bridal has quadrupled. The dress, the shoes, the cake, the flowers, the aisle, the dancing, the dining, the champagne, the family and friends, the rings - I get giddy with glee each time one of these things crosses my mind!
3. Lilly Pulitzer! The colors, the prints, the pretty styles... how can a girl not be happy when wearing Lilly?
4. Summer days and nights on the boat. Cruising across the ocean, feeling the breeze in my hair and the sun on my face, flipping off the bow and swimming, island hopping... relaxing days spent on the water are simply divine.
5. Dining alfresco. Warm summer nights spent sipping champagne on a patio and eating dinner with a view - cannot be beat.
6. Spending time with family. I have always loved family get-togethers, parties, and holidays spent with loved-ones. (This little girl does not share my love for family dinners, but she was too cute not to post!) 
7. Shopping. Whether window shopping (pure eye candy) or landing the perfect fashion find (euphoric), this girl loves to shop til she drops.
8. Christmastime! I love the carols, the decorations, white lights, Christmas trees, parties (and party dresses!), shopping, wrapping, Christmas strolls, snowfalls, fireplaces, hot chocolate, movies, and festivities of the entire season.  Andy Williams said it best: "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" 
9. My birthday - a day completely dedicated to celebrating me! Fiancé always makes it extra special, and I just adore celebrating with him.  Is this one completely and utterly self-absorbed?
10. Paris - j'adore! I love traveling of any kind, but Paris is simply my favorite city in the entire world. Champagne, crepes, croissants, Chanel, chandeliers, chateaus - all of my favorite "C's" in one magical city! Tres romantic. Sigh.
