Moments of Bliss

Bliss is defined as supreme happiness; utter joy or contentment.

For Gracie, seeing is apparently not required to experience it~

Just sitting in my mother-in-law’s lap~

Soaking up a little sunshine~

For Chloe it’s a few ice cubes to crunch on~

For me it’s the promise of Spring and some blue sky after some grey, dreary weather~

 Wishing you some moments of bliss this weekend :)

Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:

    Fabulous post, but them I am an over the top dog lover. Chloe and Gracie are just as cute as they can be. So fluffy, I’d love to cuddle up and hug them. This is our first winter we have spent in Arizona and I feel like we really didn’t even have one. It’s felt like spring all winter, although we are due for a cold snap this week with temps getting as low as 65, oh my! Love your blog. Thanks so much for sharing these great photos.

    These dogs are so beautiful, we are thinking of getting a new dog, our last one pasted a year ago and we are moving to a condo which allows small dogs. Love yours.

      Chloe & Gracie appreciate all the compliments! I have a Nikon D60 and use Picasa to edit my photos which does amazing things :)

    Pet free here, little gson is severely allergic. He ended up in the ER Cmas night as someone put a coat on his bed that had dog hair on it. OY!
    Love seeing your trees budding, and blue skies. We are due for snow and ice tonight.
    Have a good weekend, here from Seasonal Sunday.

    Bliss, indeed! I think we may soon have a little doggie bliss of our own. Getting close to bringing one home. ;-)
    Expecting freezing temps tonight and staying close to a cozy fire.

    Hi Mary,

    I looked at this post last night; I just love to see pictures of Gracie and Chloe. :-) They’re adorable!! Your pictures of the lake are lovely too. We had a ferocious, bitter wind here yesterday and last night. Did you guys have that at your place, too?

    Thanks for your visit and for your kind comments. My husband and I really love those roses. Happy Seasonal Sunday!

    Your post is real bliss for me. We’re away for a month and I miss my dog so enjoyed your two cuties.

    I’m ready for spring also. I have a horse who loves to crunch ice! She’ll stand there and eat ice cubes as long as I’ll feed them to her!

    We should all be so lucky to know such bliss:) Cute post!
