A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

But We Were Such Good Traveling Companions

I am not sure on the life of a "checked bag size" suitcase, but the one I have traveled with for the past 15 years had its last trip this week. This precious inanimate object has been near and dear to my heart, and fell apart on me once it was fully packed before Christmas. A couple "needed" zippers had their last zip, and the handle broke in two places, but since we were driving, I was able to gingerly maneuver the bag and give it a prominent place in the back seat of the vehicle!

Thankfully, there is even new "technology" in suitcases since 2000, like four wheels and super duper lightweights (4 or 5 lbs). I will be on the hunt for that perfect piece of luggage in the new year!

BSoleille! The bright side of traveling thousands of miles with a beloved suitcase!
