Bliss Bits 10/16/2015

T.G.I.F.! It’s been a big week over here. Cholula celebrated her 4th birthday, and yesterday marked Baby Howe’s halfway point in my belly (WHOA). It’s the eve of a trip to Baja with my family and we get to spend this evening with dear friends and their baby, whom we haven’t met. On top of these delightful things, the autumn sun is shining and multi-colored leaves are fluttering to the ground like butterflies. I  find myself pausing often these days (mostly because I’m out of breath from something the baby is doing to my body), but those little “time outs” are ideal for really seeing what’s around me. And it’s good. Take a peek!
