Bliss bits 10/16.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

Truth: these Bliss Bits posts are more for me than for you. Wednesdays mean taking a moment to seek out the things in my life that make it joyful. I spent a lot of this week in Durango with my family, time that is always filled with little things that make me smile. We are entering our busy time of year- our anniversary, all of the holidays, PLUS both of our birthdays- so it’s important to pause and soak in the good stuff as it happens. Here’s a glimpse into this week:
