Bliss Bits 7/2/2014.

Happy July! Summer is flying by so quickly…time to live it up! We’re packing up Betty for a long weekend in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I simply love camping, from the packing and menu prepping to the last crackling campfire and everything in between. The days I wait for all year long are HERE. It hasn’t been the easiest month for us, but truly, life is good. Here are a few things that brought a smile to my face this week.
