    blissfully

    blissfully ignorant/unaware

    Does the phrase mean that I am extremely happy because I am ignorant or unaware of sth.?
    Thank you.

    Yes it does. There is a saying, "Ignorance is bliss".
    The idea is that if you don't know about something, you don't (can't) worry about it.
