Bliss Bits 7/15/2015

The pace has slooowed around here. Lazy summer days: watering my potted garden in bare feet with coffee, taking Cholula for a swim, reading new-to-me books, afternoon naps listening to the breeze blowing the trees. My instinct is often to GO-GO-GO, to always have a plan, and it feels good to let go of the need to be busy for a while. That’s what summer is for! Take a peek.

And today, I’m starting the search for a late summer get-away spot! Suggestions? 

You know. Just the usual bliss.
