Blossoms, Iced Coffee and Reading {Little Bliss List}

1. The trees have unfurled their blossoms this week.  Allergies have kicked into high gear but not even congestion can keep me from loving every moment the landscape is dotted with trees tops that appear to have snagged a cloud directly from the heavens.

2.  With the surging temperatures I dropped all pretense of work yesterday and spent two hours watching KC play at the park followed by two hours watching him play in the sand at our local beach.  I spent my time fiddling with my camera, experimenting with photos of the waves, KC and of course...

3.  the lone surfer near the pier.  Summertime does not hurt, right?

 4.  The first iced coffee of the season ~ sipped on the deck ~ while wearing my new black sunhat ~ reading this book ~ beneath the crystal blue sky.  This encapsulates my bliss.

5.  And to top off this little bliss list, look what arrived in my mailbox this week!  The Pioneer Woman's second cookbook Food From My Frontier.  Can't wait to make another iced coffee (or maybe hers) and sit down to plan next week's menu.  Good thing we didn't give up delicious home-cooked meals for Lent!


  1. Looks like the perfect day Misty! A beautiful day, good drink, good book. Perfect! :)

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals

Saturday Surfing {favorite spots from around the web}

Saturdays are the perfect time for a little aimless web-wandering and here are few of my recent reads I'd like to recommend to you. The Wild Surrender of Motherhood by Carrie Ann Moss @Annapurna Living This new website launched this week and is absolutely lovely. Remember Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix movies? Well she is now the founder and inspiration behind this blog.  Here is an excerpt of her vision for : FROM CARRIE-ANNE ... “To see womanhood through eyes of grace.”  My desire is to live in a world where nourishment is valued. I believe a nourished family will lead to a nourished world. I believe life is beautiful and that our divine purpose in this world is to nurture the earth by respecting it and being grateful for what it provides us. My wish is to inspire others to create beautiful, honest and satisfying lives. My Other Ex: Women's True Stories of Leaving and Losing Friends   @A Design So Vast Unfortunately, over the past few
