It’s clear I need to put together Bliss Bits posts more often! They’ve gone from one per week to one per month, and as I scroll through my photos, I see that there are, um, a LOT of blissful moments to share. But that makes me happy. Has 2017 gotten off to a rocky start for anyone else, or is it just me? I feel like I’m barely treading water! My goal for balance in my life is definitely a challenge, but I’m working on it. Despite struggles here and there, there’s been plenty to smile about. Take a look!
It’s been quite a snow year so far! #happyhusband
Oden’s first cold took a while to go away, but I got lots of extra snuggles.
Color in my life!
Yes, I retired the football shirt.
John likes to comb Oden’s hair, but I like to let his curls fly free!
Perfect winter hiking conditions.
He sleeps like a stinkbug these days! That booty kills me!
Fruits, veggies, finger foods.
I believe this.
What could be better?! I love the dog looking at the fish on the grill!
It tends to be frigid on the days I save for our hikes…hmmm.

What a special memento for any child.

What can I say? He loves to read!
I shushed my inner clean freak and let him enjoy his blackberries and avocados. It was a long bath.
My friend Holly totally gets me.
He thinks I’m cool because I stack things!
Fascinated by lights (and anywhere dangerous for babies to be).
Hurry up, Mom!
A kiss through the window when Daddy got home.
A rare day date with my mountain man and trail dog!
I donated a pile of jackets, hats, gloves, and toiletries to SLC’s homeless. It felt good to help.

View from the porch.
“Calm” doesn’t happen often. I soaked it in.
I stocked the freezer with another batch of Crockpot Chicken Mole!

I’m amazed at how often we have these trails to ourselves!
One year ago, Cholula was still the only baby in the house.
Two years ago, my brother was in town from Seattle during the Super Bowl. Another great game (for me!).
Three years ago, Amanda and I went to the sledding hill. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard.
Four years ago, I was on a ski lift with John, his brother, and his nephew at Snowbird.
Five years ago, Cholula looked like this!
Six years ago, I took one of my favorite photos of Zamboni overlooking the city.
And yesterday, I took a breather and enjoyed a tasty solo breakfast.
You know. Just the usual bliss.
