It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!
I woke up sniffling and coughing with my first cold of the season. The clouds are heavy this morning, which makes me feel better about spending extra time in my robe, sipping hot tea. It’s been a busy week- a sign of what to expect through mid-January. The holiday hub-bub makes it harder to make time for small moments of gratitude, but isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about? A week before the big turkey debut, here are a few of the things I’m thankful for.
My Christmas cactus finally bloomed after at least five years.
I hiked a lot with my trail buddy.
My friend, Melissa, hosted a beautiful ladies sushi lunch!
This stunning gift arrived from some dear friends. I love the tree.
Fabulous wine label.
On weekends, John cooks brunch while dancing to reggae music.
We discovered an awesome deal at a local restaurant!
Perfect little macchiato.
I’ve decided it’s time to listen to the Christmas station in the car!
I put together a tasty charcuterie plate for a dinner party we hosted.
This is our third time seeing Blitzen Trapper in a small venue. So good!
‘Tis the season for John to send me ski photos!
Chinese take-out! The pork fried rice was yummy.
I got over 1,500 Instagram photos printed. I love holding actual photographs!
We grilled steaks for this salad, and baked polenta croutons are my new favorite thing.
Bright, big, and beautiful.
I had an article published in TrailGroove magazine. Did you see it?
A tasty baked granola recipe is coming your way this week!
I took myself out for Huevos Rancheros yesterday.
My hairdresser (of 11 years!) totally gets me.
One year ago, we were just home from our honeymoon and I cut bangs on a whim.
So many wedding cards awaited us. I love this one.
Two years ago, we were in Charleston. Ali’s twin boys adore Johnny.
We celebrated Ali’s birthday!
Three years ago, I was back in Charleston, surprising Ali on her 40th birthday.
And I found this under my pillow this morning.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
One year ago: Good manners and retro split pea soup.

Loving your captures and you get some interesting things under your pillow – ha!:) Happy Hump/Bliss Day!
Great shots, per usual, Amber! I can’t believe how much snow Park City has gotten already. Is it more than usual for this time of year or right on schedule? I can’t wait to read your article — it’s open in another bookmark and I’m heading there after this. Congrats on getting published!
The last few years have been meager snow years… this is the norm for the start of the season. It really gets going next month!
I hope you’re feeling better soon!
Thank you, Emily!
Loving your bits and I loved your article! I feel the exact same about being in the woods, but it can be so hard to take that first step–even though I know the reward to come. xx
I try to remember that when I’m home and cozy and lazy….
