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!

Summer Solstice Off the Grid

Deep into the "wild and free" areas of Crested Butte, Colorado, there is "no service" whatsoever and there is a sense of being truly unplugged to the "outside" world. But beauty abounds in every direction; from the snow-capped mountain tops, to the blooming lupine and wildflowers, to the waterfalls and lastly, the babbling Slate River running through Crested Butte at every turn.

Travel companion, Linda Misencik, and I are pinching ourselves on how very thankful we are to embark on this adventure and the celebration of the summer solstice at 10,000 ft. and higher!

BSoleille! The bright side of sweet smelling pine mountain air!
