Bliss Bits 1/8/2015

It’s weird to type out 2015, isn’t it? But I am eagerly anticipating all that this new year will bring. Its first seven days have included time with old friends, time on the beach, time on a plane, time in the mountains, time in my kitchen, time with my hubby, and time snuzzling with Cholula. If the rest of the year is anything like this week, we’re going to be ok. Remember to pause and notice the small stuff this week. Here are some of the things that have had me smiling!
