Bliss

This is a blog about bliss. For Erik bliss equals someone to smile at! And he shares this bliss with whoever sees him!Such a smile is irresistible!For Katie and Abby bliss equaled a pile of raked leaves on a nice autumn day! Making "leaf angels" is as fun as creating snow ones! Leaf fight! Unfortunately I had to put a stop to throwing leaves since they both started to gag on leaf bits which does not equal bliss!Bliss is getting a beautiful candid of your daughter... too bad my leg is in it!!! Maybe my SPFP who has an awesome photo shop program could fix it for me! :)Even a slightly blurry picture of your offspring can fill your heart with joy! So beautiful!Katie's cup of joy is overflowing with bliss at this point! Happiness is just a pile of leaves away folks! I remember the complete joy of jumping into a pile of crunchy leaves with wild abandon...so simple... no money spent, not much to fix up but the happiness it produces is so great! Waiting for Daddy to come tearing 'round the side of the house to jump into the pile of leaves...resisting the urge to jump before he does...seeing Daddy jump in the leaves and roll around...
then getting to run and jump with him...bliss!
And to cap off a perfect day of bliss Katie found a lady bug! My pretty daughter, how I love to see her lopsided smile! Maybe they'll remember getting presents, maybe they'll remember elaborate birthday parties but I remember the best, warmest memories of my childhood came from simple joys of play; moments that could not be created with money like discovering how leaves feel when your in the middle of them on a beautiful autumn day!

Thanks Erin, I'll be sure to as soon as I get a minute! :) I haven't put any hats on Etsy yet Carrie though I do have a stock pile of them made...just one of those many things I haven't gotten too yet! :)
