Kindred Connection: Bursary of Bliss Edition

A bursary = a treasury. Bliss = extreme happiness, ecstasy, joy. Here, then, is my bursary of bliss: a treasury of things that bring my joy and delight to my soul!
  1. Datiles con tocino (tapas dish of dates wrapped in bacon)
  2. The uninhibited laughter (chortles, guffaws even!) that comes out in the company of dear friends
  3. Baking sweet treats to share with others
  4. Leisurely Sunday mornings at home with my honey and a plate of blueberry pancakes
  5. The warmth and wiggliness of puppies
  6. Getting wrapped up in a really good novel
  7. Turning out all the lights and watching a thunderstorm from the comfort of the couch
  8. Inhaling the intoxicating aroma of lilac bushes in spring
  9. Anticipating and attending the annual reunion of my 3G02 girls from college
  10. Maple trees ablaze in autumn hues
  11. Wandering through the Morton Arboretum, or any interesting patch of earth
  12. Traveling to new places
  13. Trying the cuisine of various countries
  14. Memories of time spent with my grandfather
  15. Silly sing-a-longs with my husband; the more absurd, the better
  16. Capturing moments in time and scenes of beauty through my camera lens
  17. Starbucks Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Lattes
  18. My bed
  19. Learning great new words
  20. Warm, gooey brownies with ice cream
  21. Pedicures
  22. SDPs (Spontaneous Dance Parties) 
  23. Fields of sunflowers
  24. Abiding in the presence of my Savior and Friend
