Bliss Bits 6/8/2016

School’s out here in Park City, and I hear kids laughing in the neighborhood throughout the day. We cleaned up the back patio for al fresco living and brightened up the front stoop with big bunches of flowers. The yard itself is full of color with all sorts of blooms and varying shades of green. The sprinkler guy turned on the system and I’m wondering what our garden will grow this year. It’s time to move my hikes from the exposed south side of the valley to underneath the cooler pines and aspens across the way. I got a pedicure the other day and my sundresses are on rotation again. I’ve had my eyes peeled for the first lemonade stand on the block and Oden has two pairs of swim trunks just waiting to get wet. What I’m trying to say is that SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY HERE… and we’re into it! Here are some happy little bits from the week. Cheers!

So pretty. So destructive.

You know. Just the usual bliss.
