my bliss: a day like this past saturday when my partner and I get in the car and head out to spend the day together. this time we went to a "maple" festival about an hour away, stopped at 2 wineries, checked out some antique/collectibles shops, and had dinner in a church basement, mmmm roast beef.
more bliss: when I'm with my kids and I realize just how much they have on the ball. I was alone with my youngest son one eveing last week. we pulled into the parking lot at a shopping strip and I saw my bf's car. I suggested we go in the store where he was, and my youngest said "you can see him later, you're dating him!" I asked him what he meant and he said "he lives with you, so you're dating him."
even more: I also have 2 teenagers. watching them achieve adult goals is bringing me so much joy. My daughter, the oldest, just got accepted to college, and passed her music audition for the music dept. my 17yo son recently participated in a talent competition playing his guitar and singing. he was great.
