Bliss Bits 12/19.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday Thursday!

The Christmas train keeps right on rolling around here! This week has been all about party clean-up and gifts and cards and prepping for my family’s arrival tomorrow. This morning, as I watched the snow falling outside and wrote Christmas cards, I felt so grateful. It’s hard to beat a house full of loved ones at Christmas. Here are a few happy things from this week!
