Bliss bits 8/21.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

It’s also my first post since Friday, thanks to a full-to-the-brim weekend with my entire family (and four dogs!). I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow. In the quiet after the mayhem, I’m focusing on being present and grateful for the itty bits of joy in every day. Here are a few of my happy things...

Yesterday, I received a sweet email from one of the hosts of BlogTalkRadio out of New York City. On one of their recent shows, they referenced my article on Elephant Journal about the wisdom we can learn from dogs– and they loved The Usual Bliss, too! (Missed the article? Read it here.)

Puppy memories! This was taken right after Cholula’s very first bath. (She hated it.) 

You know. Just the usual bliss.
