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!

Whirlwind Wedding Weekend for Liz Verrecchia and Stephens Schaefer!

A crisp fall day on the Afton Mountain, Virginia, at the Veritas Winery was the perfect November wedding setting for the nuptials of Lizdot (Elizabeth Dorothy) and Stephens Schaefer! "The Best Daughter" was Liz's Maid of Honor, and Wes France was Stephens' Best Man, where they took their roles "seriously" and did a fantastic job in keeping their "charges" cool, calm and collected throughout the weekend. Our whole family was happy to celebrate this special weekend with Liz and Stephens families and friends; including the rehearsal; wedding and farewell brunch.

This mountain is considered the Rockfish Gap (a wind gap) between Charlottesville and Waynesboro, VA, and truly breathtaking. However, as beautiful as the area is, it could not hold a candle to stunning bride, Liz, and her dashing groom, Stephens, along with their guests who descended from all parts of the country to revel (and sing and dance) with them on their extraordinary day! It was pure love and joy for this handsome couple, and we all wish them a lifetime of happiness as they go on as husband and wife.

I must admit that I love to dance, and so did most of the guests as the dance floor was on fire all night long! We all realized that these folks really know how to throw a party, and that can be attributed by a special Shout Out of  THANKS to Margaret Walters, Mother of the Bride (MOB) who seamlessly orchestrated all the events which inevitably helped Liz (and Stephens) realize their dreams of a perfect day.

BSoleille! The bright side of the newlyweds, Liz and Stephens Schaefer!
