Bliss Bits 9/4/2014.

Over the course of a few days, the deep green hillsides in Park City have warmed into a mottled patchwork of orange and red. Labor Day fanfare has come and gone, and September is here. It’s my favorite time of year, the glorious months leading up to our anniversary, holiday festivities, and our birthdays. Perhaps I’m feeling a little nostalgic this week because my Grandpa will be blowing out 90 birthday candles in a few days. Life is good- celebrate it. Here’s what made me smile this week!
