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!

She Said, "Yes!"

My friend Susie Stevenson's son, Scott, got engaged to his girlfriend, Kayla, this past weekend at Homestead Gardens. They had their second date there selecting a Christmas tree a few years ago. When she mentioned it at our quilt guilds' Holiday Party I thought this was a cool idea and put it in the back of my mind. As Friday afternoon rolled around, I casually mentioned the engagement situation to my son and wondered if he would like to go with me. He also thought the idea was pretty cool, so we got down there at the appointed time and hid amoungst the trees waiting until Scott and Kayla got to the fire pit and he popped the question. 

I am thankful that both families were present along with a "hidden" crew of staff that were in on the surprise. It really was a magical moment, and I wish them a happy engagement. 

BSoleille!  The bright side of a "yes" moment!
