Happy Thanksgiving...a little early!

I know I'm a day early, but I'm off to see my family and didn't want to leave without passing on my best wishes for a delicious and thankful day for you and your family.

What's in a name?

Alot apparently. Choosing a blog name for some may be a simple, straightforward process, but for me...not so much. After much googling of names I wanted and finding them already in use, I thought I had one I could live with. That is, until I found a very popular blog with a very similar name.

So, the search went on. I found another I really liked, googled it to find it not taken, but someone must have it reserved as I got a message that it was taken when trying to publish the name.

Which brings us to a variation of that name, Designing Bliss. According to, Designing is...

1. scheming; intriguing; artful; crafty.
2. showing or using forethought.
3. the act or art of making designs.

Okay, parts of that fit - not the scheming part though.  And Bliss is...

1. supreme happiness; utter joy or contentment: wedded bliss.
2. Theology. the joy of heaven.
3. heaven; paradise: the road to eternal bliss.
4. Archaic. a cause of great joy or happiness.
