Bliss Bits 10/8/2014

What a wonderful week! The weather is simply perfect, making it easy to explore new trails. There was lots of time in the kitchen and lots of time with friends, and even some time in my happiest place (Betty!). We have had a sometimes (very) difficult year, but weeks like this remind me that life is goodalways. Take a peek at my little smiles!
