Bliss Bits 1/16/2014

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday Thursday!

I’m enjoying the slower pace of 2014 after the flurry of the holiday season. We are in a bit of a lull, before the madness of the Sundance Film Festival and multiple guests at the Casa de Howe. What are the things that have been making you smile lately? Here are a few of mine…
