Bliss Bits 5/15/2014.

Would you believe me if I told you that it snowed this week? I tried my hardest to be thankful for the moisture, I really did. But as the trees begin to bud and early-season wildflowers brighten up my hikes, I’m overjoyed for each ray of sunshine and barefoot moment. We’re opening the patio this weekend (eee!) and plotting this year’s garden. We’re daydreaming about warm-weather vacations and Betty’s seasonal debut. The earth comes alive this time of year, and it’s hard not to follow suit. Here are some bits of joy from my week.

And this morning, the view during my hike was perfect.

You know. Just the usual bliss.

  1. Loving your captures – Happy Bliss Day 🙂 I have never seen a moose in the wild. Our chives survived the winter months as well as the rosemary. Your pup is such a HOOT and a HAM!
