Bliss bits 5/21/2014.

Today, just for fun, I searched “the secret to happiness” on Pinterest. Based on the results, there are a thousand and one paths to bliss. So much inspiration! One of my favorites was a quote from Charles Spurgeon: “It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.” What makes you smile? Here’s what I happily enjoyed this week.

You know. Just the usual bliss.
