Bliss Bits 11/15/2015

It was a bit of an odd week. Things are getting real with Baby Howe. I feel like I’m growing a GIANT who will be arriving in just over 15 weeks. 15 weeks is soon! I spent half of the week solo while John tramped through the west desert of Utah, hunting birds with some dear friends. Lesson: Alone time can be rough on an emotional pregnant lady. And then the news from Beirut and Paris cast a shadow over the joy of bringing a new life into this world. Throw in the nostalgic time of year and I’m feeling extra emotional and quite fortunate for this life. I take a deep breath of crisp November mountain air and exhale gratitude. Here are a few of the smiles of the week!

And this morning, I hung a banner with words that I try to remember all year long. 

You know. Just the usual bliss.
