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!

Thirty-four Years of Manufacturing Sunshine and a Whole Lot More!

With this guy named Bill Tomoff - TODAY! Happy Anniversary to US!

Like the Barry Manilow song says, “It Looks Like We Made It.” We sure did. I’m betting we have many years ahead for more fun and adventure starting down our 35th lap together—hands clasped or double fisted in the air pumping wildly and cheering each other as a couple…and as individuals. The roller coaster of life…and marriage!
We all know, and have read that marriage has its ups and downs. But with our team approach coupled with deep love, commitment and respect for each other all these years, certainly helped us from the moment we said our “I do’s.” Looking back and pulling out another song, “Reminiscing” by the Little River Band (it so happens I’m full of song today), we’ve not only manufactured a hell of a lot of sunshine the past 34 years, but rain, snow and sleet whenever it was needed. I like to think the two of us has weathered the weather (not necessarily what is happening out-of-doors, rather the climate within our bubble) more times than we’d like to admit.

Our daughter, Olivia, spent some time with us this weekend, getting a quick walk around the Crofton, Maryland Parkway (4 mile loop) to “celebrate” with us. Our son has designs on making us a delicious meal on the barbie. I couldn’t justify going out for dinner when Ryan’s delicious meals and cooking skills put most restaurants to shame (and we know the ingredients that are in/or not in for healthy eating!).
