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!

Mom/Daughter Trip to Aruba!

I feel wildly blessed that "The Best Daughter" considers me a friend/Mom/travel partner, as we woke up very early today and headed to the tropical island of Aruba. Last April, at the Special Love Gala, I 'duked' it out with a couple of guests for the airline tickets for travel either around the USA or down South, even to South America. "The Best Daughter" and I decided on Aruba (hotel using points), and so far, we are not disappointed. This breezy island has the turquoise waters, warm ocean breezes and "gourmet" food to cover all the bases of a good R&R vacation.

We are looking forward to exploring the beaches, the artifacts and fauna around the island, and perhaps some "off-the-beaten-path" adventures, including more "wildlife" (in and out of the ocean) that we have already discovered at our hotel.
