Bliss bits 12/4.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

December. WOW. The crazy/fun holiday season is in full swing over here, bringing along the usual nostalgia. Now that the shock of returning to an actual winter after almost a week in sunny California is fading, it’s game on– decorations, twinkling lights, secret gifts, glistening snow. This season always seems to go by so fast, so I’m working hard to stop every now and then to soak it all in. Here’s what’s been making me smile over the last couple of weeks.

  1. Ok I LOVE the pic of Cholula and fox sleeping…sooo cute!!! Oh & that breakfast is to die for! And cinnamon marshmallow? Do they sell them like that, or did you sprinkle cinnamon on top? Either way, very clever! 🙂
