Bliss bits 9/11.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

Each Wednesday morning, I pour myself a steaming cup o’ joe, switch on the record player, and settle in to browse my photos from the week. I giggle and sigh at the miscellaneous moments that kept me smiling over the last seven days. Just making a point of seeking the happy things changes my mood. It’s no wonder Wednesdays are my favorite dates with The Usual Bliss. Take a peek at what had me sighing this morning…

Clouds rolling in this morning. 

You know. Just the usual bliss. 

**As an American, it’s impossible to type “9/11” and not feel an empty pit in my stomach. I would be remiss not to mention that John and I recognize the significance of 9/11 and honor those who perished. Please read my post from one year ago and join me in remembering. Never forget.**

    • Sometimes, she pulls every last toy out of her toybox and brings them to us one by one. Like, “You guys! I forgot about this one! Remember this one??!”
      I cringe to mention that the toys in that photo are from one of FOUR toyboxes. Ooops.
