It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!
Ready or not, the holidays are creeping. I’m not going to count the dwindling weeks until Christmas- I’m just not. Instead, I’m going to attempt to squelch the control freak side of me that wants to plan everything and savor the season. The festive decor. The heavenly aromas of holiday baking and special occasion meals. More time than usual with beloved friends and family. Twinkling lights and turkey sammies. Nostalgia for holidays past and hope for the future. We’re not there yet… but I’m ready. The small things hold more significance for me this time of year, holiday-related or not. Take a peek at what made me smile this week!
A pano of the view from the trail behind our house. I spy snow!
My dad entered his ’62 Porsche 356B in a car show (far right)!
A magical combination. Recipe soon!
Catching our breath at the top of the hill.
Whiskey bacon jam for a brunch party. Mmmm.
Badger’s preferred resting spot during a crowded party.
Pour on the Johnny’s!
I can’t keep up.
A morning at Snowbird.
I wish I could start EVERY day with a solo soak in a rooftop jacuzzi.
I was inspired to experiment with a new granola recipe- stay tuned!
Not sure if she likes my lap, or just wants me to move out of her seat…
We’re having a party!
Amanda and I “cheers” each other via iPhone pics during happy hour.
Vinyl just sounds better.
“Stop reading and PLAY WITH ME.”
One year ago, I was laughing uncontrollably in the back of a truck in Tahiti.
Also, there was this.
Two years ago, we had about the same amount of snow as we do now.
Three years ago, I joined John on a day of hunting chukar.
And this was the sky this morning.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
