Bliss Bits 10/6/2016

This gal has been busy since our return from Kauai! We had a house full of laughter with my two dear friends, Molly and Vanessa, in town for a long weekend of Oden-lovin’. I’ve been a Tasmanian Devil in the kitchen, busting through 8 or 9 new recipes to test kitchen products as part of my collaboration with AOL Lifestyle. Stay tuned- I hope you’re hungry! I took my first hike with snow underfoot and sweet Oden is working on tooth #8 and sleep training. Oh, and I spent Tuesday night about 30 feet from my beloved Neil Young, playing with Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real. I’ve had some pretty stressed out and tear-filled moments lately related to many aspects of life, but when it comes down to it, I’m a lucky woman. Take a peek at some of the reasons why!
