Bliss Bits 8/13/2015

This morning, I scrolled through many friends’ back-to-school photos. The weather is cooler these days and I’ve even spied some leaves changing already. Is summer almost over…already? Not for us! We still have a few outdoor concerts on the books, plus an extended camping trip in the next couple of weeks (location TBD). As much as I love fall (and even get nostalgic for snow!), I’m not ready. Let’s squeeze as much summer out of the next month as we can, shall we? Here’s what’s been making me happy lately!

And this morning, a brave bunny with a cotton tail nibbled all sorts of treats in the backyard. 

You know. Just the usual bliss.
