Listing My Bliss {Six}

It's Friday again, and that means it's time for a bliss list! 

It's also the second day of March already; did it catch everyone by surprise, or is it just me?  Time seems to be just flying these days!  {In a good way.}  And while much of the country has been dealing with storms, the month that "comes in as a lion" has been blissfully calm and sunny so far here in the mid-Atlantic.  There is rain in the forecast for the weekend, but fortunately for me, my only plans are to spend it at home, working on sewing projects.  Bliss.

I felt incredibly blissful when I saw a pile of cut daffodils at the market yesterday, wrapped and ready to be put into water and brought to life.  Such a sun-shiny welcome to Spring!  {Can you believe that it's just around the corner?}

Natalie Portman made me smile with bliss by her choice of gown for the Oscars, a vintage 1950's Dior.  I am always thrilled to see the vintage movement supported so beautifully!

Rounding out my bliss for this {and every} week is the mister, who fills our days with music.  Despite being advised by caregivers that he's not quite ready, he began working full days this week with a cheerful outlook and an optimistic attitude.  He even managed to find enough energy at the end of the day yesterday for a visit to his favorite local music store and then to take me out for a plate of pasta at my favorite Italian restaurant.  A spontaneous date night = bliss.

I hope that you have had a blissful week as well, dear friends!  Please consider joining the linky party on Liv Lane's Choosing Beauty blog to share, and / or tell me about it here in the comments.  I would love to hear!

xoxo, Anita
