Bliss Bits 9/1/2015

Well, this week has been pretty wonderful. It feels fabulous to finally share our big news publicly, and the outpouring of love we have received has been magical! Somehow, Baby Howe feels more real. This is happening. In addition, I’ve been feeling so much more like myself again (aside from one unfortunate nausea-filled 24-hour date with the bathroom floor). Throw in a milestone achievement for John at work, some rusty fall colors on the hillsides, and the anticipation of an itinerary-less 10-day road trip, and I’m a happy girl. Some weeks, it’s easier to stop and smell the roses because they seem to be everywhere. Welcome, September. Here’s a handful of smiles!

You know. Just the usual bliss.
