Bliss Bits 7/16/2014.

Since the beginning of July, we’ve spent a total of four days in our own bed. After two (very fun) back-to-back road trips, we’re regrouping and becoming reacquainted with our normal summertime life at home: farmers market treasures, local wildflower-filled hikes, dog-diving at the creek down the road, long days spent with good friends, outdoor concerts, and cocktails on the patio. I’ll share our fabulous trip to Bear Valley later this week. Until then, here’s a batch of my little happy things lately!

  1. Wonderful Bliss Bits! It’s so funny that I seem to be going to all the concerts you’ve attended. I remember when you posted about seeing Steve Marting and the Steep Canyon Rangers and I saw them for the 4th of the July. Now I see you’ve seen Paul McCartney and I’m about to see him next month. Great taste, Amber! 😉
