Bliss List #5 and Photo Friday

Today I’m participating again in Liv Lane’s Follow Your Bliss bloghop.  Liv writes, “Every Friday, I will share a list of the bliss in my midst, reflecting on moments over the past week where I’ve caught myself in a sense of wonder, contentment, and true joy. It’s like a gratitude list, but rather than just being thankful for the things I have…I want to be thankful for the way I feel – even if it’s fleeting – and celebrate whatever brought me to that bliss.”  Feel free to join us!

Here’s where I found bliss over the past week:

  • One morning while my daughter was in school, I painted an old bookshelf and three trellises (trelli?) for mandevillia.  I turned on our patio speakers, listened to a favorite mix CD, and had a delightful time grooving and painting away.  The birds were singing and it felt like they were there with me, watching and cheering.  It’s a work in progress, but here’s where I am right now… 


  • Out of nowhere, my daughter came to me and said, “I love you so so much, Mommy.” My heart just melted.
  • My daughter and I picked wildflowers to make bouquets for a friend and one for us.  I enjoyed watching her as she designed them.  We found a few flowers that I’ve never seen before.  This entire week with her has been wonderful.  She is hilarious and creative and so fun to be with.


Where did you find bliss this week?

Happy weekend everyone!

Monday’s post will be published on Sunday, April 1… it’s time for the One Little Word blog hop!

  1. i found my bliss this week when we finally got a date for our wedding at the location we wanted! hooray! and our officiant is amazing–i can’t wait for her to lead me into this new chapter of my life!

  2. I am so inspired by the what you have created by the side of your house. I can’t wait to get get out the paints. We are on a cul de sac, so the side of my house faces the street. I see both the front and the side of my house as being the main point of view.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
