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.
My favorite trails are snow-covered now.
Betty‘s future BFF?
I’m not really a Starbucks person, but these are yummy!
Dog in a sunbeam holding a sunbeam.
I love this spiky leftover from summertime.
A quiet morning in front of the fire.
John singing along to reggae while he makes one of his fabulous weekend breakfasts.
Seriously! How good does that look?
Cholula and fox, stretching.
New favorite yogurt.
Still working on it.
My mom‘s birthday was this week! (Love you, Mom!)
Spotted on a walk in Point Reyes.
This Thanksgiving plate makes my tummy growl.
I need a cat in my life.
My mom sent me this photo of a baby German Shepherd snuggling in a big dog’s fur. EEEEE.
My little Yeti.
I made bacon jam this week!
Hopeful for said bacon.
Stovetop cocoa and a cinnamon marshmallow.
Her ears kill me!
I’ve been getting crafty lately.
One year ago, we found the perfect tree!
It was not small.
Two years ago, we were napping on the beach in Point Reyes. We love it there!
Three years ago, I had a cute little half-tree in my condo named Sherman.
And this was the view from the porch this morning.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
**One year ago: Decorating for our first Christmas in the new house!
