Bliss Bits 4/9/2014.

There’s a particular feeling when you’re nearing the end of a trying time and you begin to feel like yourself again. It’s as if a veil has been lifted and the beautiful things in life are re-revealed. It feels natural to smile at the little happy things in every day, to feel gratitude often. Breathe in, breathe out… and see all of the good around us. Here is this week’s “good”….

  1. Love the puppy paws and the gorgeous scenery on your hike. I also agree that sometimes, you just gotta go for the box-brownies or cookies! 🙂 Have so much fun in Kuaui!
