Bienvenue a chez bliss!
I chose the name “chez bliss” to encompass all the interests I will write about under one simple umbrella (my house is historic and named “The Bliss House”; “chez” is my nod to my lifelong love of France and all things French). Everything thing I do , everything I experience, everything I read happens/originates from my home…here at “chez bliss”.
The purpose of this blog is many fold. It is my creative outlet for writing, for photography*, for experimenting. It will be an online scrapbook of my life…things I want to remember and share. I am not here to promote the idea(s) that I’ve got “it” all figured out in any category I write about…because I don’t (and who does?). This blog is simply for fun because I like to have fun. And this is a great example of my speed of fun:
I love Bliss House because it is older than the hills. But an old house is nothing unless it has an old man to go with it–my gem of a husband, Brett. Here he is mastering the art of old-man-porch-sitting :
Oh. This is my dog, Rockefeller. You will see a lot of him.
And as always, thank you for giving me some of your valuable time by reading this blog. It means a lot.
*my photos are not “photoshopped”. in rare instances, i may tweak contrast/brightness or slightly crop a photo. i really try to capture what i am seeing at a given moment. and i don’t take myself seriously as a photographer–it is simply a fun hobby.
and, for the record, if i did photoshop, i would have filled in my eyelashes on my left eye, above.
