Every Friday, the Little Bliss List provides a chance for us to celebrate the little things that brought us hope and happiness this week. I do believe when we focus on the sweet stuff of life, the sweet stuff multiplies. And by sharing those small gifts in our lives, we help others notice the gifts in theirs. 

Wowza. I think I have whiplash! It’s been a whirlwind week – stressful and blissful all at once. Here are my highlights in photos – can’t wait to hear yours!

My baby boarded the bus for a new year of preschool. He was thrilled, I was choked up. Tru’s bus drops him off at our house minutes before Ryder’s bus arrives down the block. On Monday, Tru ran down to Ryder’s bus stop yelling, “Ryder, I went to school!!! And I went potty there!” Ryder humored him, saying “good job” and my heart nearly burst watching them walk back to the house, backpacks on their backs and a bounce in their step. Those boys just melt me sometimes.

On Wednesday, I got to talk with hundreds of parents and parent educators {including some of you!} about igniting sparks in ourselves and our kids. Time flew by {one of the signals I’m following my bliss},  the ParentFurther.com team was fantastic to work with and the early feedback was so lovely. If you want to hear the free webinar, a recording is now available here.

Yesterday, my mom, Nana and I got a little pampering at our favorite spa, then had lunch with my uncle, who was visiting from Cincinnati. He and my mom were recalling the most hilarious childhood stories; I cannot remember the last time I laughed so hard! There’s nothing better than belly laughs, right?

This is me, happily running errands. In the mom-mobile. Both kids at school. Sun shining. Non-dairy ice cream and other goodies from our co-op in the trunk. Grateful to have the time and money and resources for it all.

And, last but not least, I’ve gotten such a kick out of reading the entries for my BuzzWorthy giveaway: creative entrepreneurs and thinkers sharing what makes them brilliant. It fills my heart up to see people stepping into their own light; I hope you’ll enter, too {I’m giving away 3 spots!}.
