Extracting Happiness

I feel a little guilty about my blogging material as of late. It may come off rather materialistic or superficial. I assure you, that's not what I aim to do. Are you getting tired of the numerous "lovely" lists? My so-called faaaaaaabulous finds? Ha! Be honest. I love your feedback. I'll try my best to continue to change things up around here, but quite honestly, these are the sorts of things that excite me and make my eyes light up! I love delicious food, a darling new accessory, documenting memories, design and decor tips, etc. It's kind of the point of this blog, but I would like to find a way to present this material to you in a more creative way. Is the format getting boring? Send me your ideas! I'm open to anything. I guess I just feel like I'm in a rut; it's been very Groundhog's Day around here. With Flyboy away, I continue to search for ways to fill my time and keep busy. Putting together each post is definitely a daily highlight, but I also want to keep you engaged as well. One Fine Day is my way of extracting happiness from each day and sharing it with you! The finished product and your comments make me the happiest.
So True.

  2. Don't you dare change a thing, my dear. If you do, I'll send you an opus of an email laying out your numerous fabulous traits and why you should write about what you like. So there :) Your blog is a far cry from "here's a pretty picture;" your passion is evident!

  3. If you even start to think that your blog isn't an abundance of happy, feel free to read my worked-up, 8pg comment a few posts back. Your blog is a daily dose of you, so how could it not be fabulous and loved by all. Striving to do the best you can is always commendable, but if you are getting down on my Smash, you better check yo'self. ;)

  6. I love your blog and I especially love that tutorial for the paper flowers. Thanks for your encouraging words you left on my blog too. I really appreciate it.

    Sometimes it's hard to share the "unpretty" side of life on our blogs but I know it's something we can all relate to.

    Thanks for being a bright spot :)
