One Little Month is about the little (and sometimes big) things that have made me happy during the last month.
July was about blue skies, hanging out in my garden, fresh summery food, ice cream and spending time with friends. This was a month of enjoying all the best that the summer has to offer.
Some other things that made me happy were...
The Around the World Blog Hop... reading the posts of so many people I admire, being invited to participate by one of my favourite bloggers, and having the chance to find out more about the two wonderful bloggers I invited.
When i'm the passenger in a car, I like to open the window and let my hand float along on, what I assume, are air currents. It's odd, but I've been doing it for years and it feels nice, and makes me happy... and a few weeks ago, as I was driving home from my friends house, was the first time I've ever seen anyone else doing it, it lifted my heart.

And how could I not include the #100happydays challenge, the positivity and happiness it's brought in to my life surprises me every day.
I hope you had a wonderful July too, here's to an even more glorious August...
*I'm not sure how well an 'ice cream oyster' translates outside the UK, so to clarify, it's two wafers shaped like oyster shells, stuck together with a gooey blob of marshmallowy fluff, half dipped in chocolate and covered in coconut, which is then, cracked open and filled, by your friendly ice cream van man (or woman), with soft serve ice cream and, for the greedy among us (of which I am one), topped with raspberry sauce and a chocolate flake... there isn't any seafood involved! Have you ever had one? Do you love them as much as I do?
