It’s BLISS BITS
Happy Halloween! For the past few years, LIFE has gotten in the way of any crazy Halloween festivities. Two years ago, we had just returned home from the Yucatan a day early, thanks to a hurricane evacuation. Last year, we were just catching our breath after our wedding and an extra week filled with family, thanks to another hurricane. Our Halloween habit these days is to snuggle in with scary movies and handing out candy to the kiddies. And after traveling for most of this week, that’s our big plan this year, too! Most of these shots are from our Pacific Northwest anniversary adventure– I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Here’s a sneak peek, plus a few other itty bitty smiles from the week.
