Bliss Bits 7/8/2015

Wow, what a blur the past 15 days have been! House guests, back-to-back trips to California and Colorado, music, summer fun, family, friends…I always know that life has been full when I find myself on an unexpected mini-hiatus from posting here. All of a sudden, we’re well into July! I’ve got a lot to share with you, but while I regroup (and nap), take a peek at these snippets of joy from the past two weeks. Happy summer!

You know. Just the usual bliss.
