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!

Pure Love in Pure Michigan: Wedding of Haley Nelson and Jayme Peńa!

When love is in the air, especially being celebrated on a warm summer's day in Grand Rapids, Michigan, there's nothing like it! This weekend we were lucky enough to travel there and were honored to help in the celebration of the marriage of Haley Nelson to Jayme Peńa. Our family has been friends with the Nelson's for over 33 years, and have known Haley since the day she was born. And just like that...she's all grown up and now married, and we could not be happier for her and her handsome groom. Cheers to you both!

In addition to all the festivities surrounding the wedding, the meeting up with our "old" friends (Gina and Scott) and their families and friends (who many we have not scene in "decades") was also a super sweet treat for us. It seemed everyone was in a very festive and celebratory mood the entire weekend in Pure Michigan.

A huge shout of Thanks to Gina and Scott Nelson, and Becky and Joe Peńa and their families, in creating a perfect wedding celebration for their precious daughter, Haley, and son, Jayme. Pure Love fore sure!

Congratulations to the new bride and groom and wishing you both a lifetime of joy and happiness, and hanging on to the adventure of married life.
