Bliss bits 8/14.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday! 

And August is half over.  A new, sweet friend (that I met because of this blog!) has a saying that I told her I was going to steal: BE HERE NOW, AMBER. I’ve been thinking a lot about the passing of time lately. Life flies by, whether you are happy or sad, bored or busy. It’s so important to enjoy the moment, whatever it holds! Here are a few of my moments from this week.

Rainy day tea. I’ve been loving ginger-peach lately. What’s your favorite tea?

I came across this shot of me from a rainy trip to Mexico I took with Sarah in 2010. We need a do-over!

Nearby wildfires make for warm afternoon light on the hillside behind our house. 

You know. Just the usual bliss.

I also made lavender cupcakes with a lime glaze frosting a few years back…lemme know if you’d like the recipe, I think I could dig it up for you 🙂 xx
