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!"

Kelleys Island, Ohio, has always been a happy place for me and my family, and this weekend, it just got a wee bit happier with the exciting news of "The Best Daughter"getting engaged to her betrothed, Brian Phillips! Everyone was "in" on the news, except "The Best Daughter," so her surprise on the proposal was very sweet and pure joy! We are so happy for Brian and Olivia as they move ahead and plan for the future, which in itself, is exciting for both families.

A huge THANK YOU to Jodie and Scot Smith for hosting this beautiful event at their lovely home (with live entertainment)! And what event can't go without food? So another huge THANK YOU to Ryan Tomoff and Carol and Dick Smith for catering a delicious dinner for all (pulled pork and wings and a huge Italian Dinner!)  We are so appreciative for the family and friends who were able to celebrate the engagement weekend, culminating with the 5K and 10K races tomorrow morning!

BSoleille! The bright side of love and a beautiful engagement in one of "The Best Daughter's" happy place.


I hope you will enjoy the photos of this wonderful day for our family. Below; the proposal (photo taken in the house with a screen in the window cause we weren't sure if it was going to be "the moment").

Love at Kelleys Island
