Bliss Bits 3/27/2015

This month flew by! Two weekends of full guest rooms and a get-away to the desert, springtime celebrations and old friends, hiking and skiing and sunshine and even a little bit of snow. I love this time of year, when the days are getting warmer and longer. The world is coming back to life after winter… and so am I. Here’s what made me smile this week.

Three years ago, I was telling Cholula a secret.

Four years ago, I was on my deathbed with the Black Lung (aka pneumonia).

And today, life is beautiful. 

You know. Just the usual bliss.

  1. I think I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again, how you find bliss in so many ways – big & small – on such a consistent basis is truly inspiring!!! I definitely think of you (not in a creepy way!) and your “bliss bits” when I feel like I’m losing focus or missing something in my day to day. It helps me to simply enjoy things a little more, feel things a little deeper, and gain a sense of presence in my every day experiences. Thank you so much!!!
