Bliss Bits 1/29/2014.

It’s BLISS BITS Wednesday!

Admittedly, yesterday was a bit of a bummer day for me. Amanda’s presence filled our home and it’s too quiet without our constant giggling. We all have down days, and I believe it’s important to allow those feelings to have their moment. But today, as I type, some long-overdue snowflakes are starting to fall outside and I’m feeling grateful– for snow, for slippers, for hot coffee, for a snuggling dog, for dear friends. Peeling through a week’s worth of photos to find bits of joy will raise anyone’s spirits- TRY IT. See what made me smile this week…

This little love bear is named Louie. He’s five months old and John met him on a ski tour.

Yay for lots of snow in the forecast. This is NOT what January should look like!

Amanda loved her welcome basket! The slippers are excellent for moonwalking.

You know. Just the usual bliss.
