Bliss Bits 10/8/2017

I read something once along the lines of life being about the moments. You know, the moments make up the hours, which make up the days, which make up your life… I believe this, and now that I have a child (aka the Toddler Tornado), it’s even more true. Each day is a whirlwind of moments that have passed me by before I’ve even had a chance to savor them! Some are good, and some aren’t as fun, but this is IT. This is life. We’re in it right this moment. It reminds me of another quote that I love: “Enjoy the little things in life, because one day, you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.” Take a peek at the little/big things that have kept me smiling recently, and remember… enjoy this moment!

The leaves against the blue fall sky are so vibrant!

Choosing details for his scarecrow craft at Story Time. 

In case you were wondering if Cholula’s quality of life has decreased with a baby in the house…

Sunsets are happening early these days!

Thinking about a “ferocious” lion costume for Oden this year. 

I’ve been involving Oden in a few simple baking projects lately. He LOVES to help!

He doesn’t understand waiting for things to cool down before taking a bite just yet!

We have had a family of moose in the ‘hood this fall. Not pictured: the GIANT DADDY MOOSE.

You turn your back for ONE second…

The kind of photo I’d usually skip because I don’t love how I look…but then I see the smiles!

I spy a dimple!

A treat for Mama!

There’s a heartbreaker in the making here.

I love watching this grove of aspens change color each year. 

Crockpot shredded chicken tacos! So easy and yummy.

“Reading” to Dada.

Evenings are chilly already!

Thankful for this reminder. They certainly are.

I took myself out for a burger!

There’s no way we won’t be sports parents with this active dude!

Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. YES.

Cholula and I hiked PC Hill again! The view was just as glorious as the first time

Vodka lemonade with rosemary. It was delicious!

Date night at Cafe Terigo. 

Misty morning. Where are the mountains?

I took piano lessons for 15 years. This warms my musical heart!

Cholula likes to survey the neighborhood each afternoon from the lawn. 

Curls! I can’t get enough of them. 

These two! My babies. 

Oden saw Jared Leto on Ellen and said, “Dada!” 

A quiet solo drive up Lambs Canyon to see incredible fall colors. 

A tasty lunch date with my girlfriend, Alex!

I love football season!

He stops all activity to listen to airplanes and helicopters. 

I love spying on John and Oden together. 


One year ago, I joy-sobbed through a very special night with Neil Young 20 feet away. 

Oh! And Oden looked like THIS. #thighs #sockstoosmall

Two years ago, Cholula and I hiked in Lewis Park Nature Preserve.

Three years ago, we got a decent first snow at home!

Four years ago, we camped at Hades and hiked to Heart Lake

Five years ago, we took a pre-wedding trip to Charleston

Six years ago, John took me to Tulum, intending to propose to me. (He didn’t… read about it!).

And this weekend, we visited the pumpkin patch! Stay tuned for more!

You know. Just the usual bliss.
