Bliss bits 10/2.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

October is here. Fall has arrived. Pumpkins are officially allowed- in my food, on my hearth. My favorite colors are everywhere- rusty reds, fiery oranges, golden yellows. Days are shorter and nights are colder. I’ll share more of my intentions for the season later this week. For now, take a peek at some of the things that have made me smile lately…
