Today’s happiness is brought to you by an odd little (well, not REALLY so little) something that’s actually on my gratitude list as well: my home office scanner. Weird, right? But hang on – I can explain…

Well, I’m afraid that today’s post is going to be overwhelmingly Oscar-centric (are you sick and tired of seeing photos of my cats yet?!). Thing is, when I read this week’s Photo Friday prompt word – blissful – I immediately thought of our fluffy boy, who is [click to continue…]
