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!

Bridget Franek Gets Married!

Our friends Tom and Rosalie Franek hosted a gangbuster wedding (backyard) party for their daughter Bridget and her groom, Gabriel Lemay today. They actually got married the first weekend in July in Eugene, Oregon (Bridget and Gabe's hometown), but wanted to celebrate their nuptials with many family and friends from Ohio and East that couldn't make the trek out West. The day also included the celebration of one year of marriage of their son, Josh, and his bride, Kristina, who married smack dab in the middle of Covid last June.

The day was typical Franek style (minus a bike race or road race). Twenty-five of us went on a two mile hike on their property first thing in the morning. Then we played Knockout on their basketball half court. Tom set up shooting sport gallery with bee-bee guns and clay pigeons that was a favorite for many, as well as a  volleyball court, corn-hole compeitition, swimming in their pond, croque, balloon toss and timed bucket races around the pond. Oh, did I mention delicious food and drink? They covered all bases there as well. 

The night ended with a big bonfire and tired folks from the entire day of playing, laughing and having a great time. 


Best wishes to Bridget & Gabe and Josh & Kristina for long a happy marriages.
