Sunday Reflections…

Most travel plans have been put on hold, as I’m sure you are well aware… So for our Anniversary trip, we decided to do it by Boat 🚣‍♀️ Talk about social distancing! Tanning, reading, jamming music, taking photos, and just cruising the boat. Only stopping to take dip or refuel at an available marina. 

What a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary!



We taken many a road trip as well, but there’s nothing like just floating around on the river for a few days! 

 

“Dark brown is the river.  
  Golden is the sand.  
It flows along for ever,  
  With trees on either hand.  

Green leaves a-floating,
  Castles of the foam,  
Boats of mine a-boating—  
  Where will all come home?  

On goes the river  
  And out past the mill,  
Away down the valley,  
  Away down the hill.  

Away down the river,  
  A hundred miles or more,  
Other little children  
  Shall bring my boats ashore.”

   ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

27 Years In The Blink Of An Eye…

Happy Anniversary! ❤️🍾💥 I am a blessed man! I’m fortunate enough to have a job that I love, a great family & Im married to a virtuous woman 👩🏻  Again – blessed! 27 years of marriage today… In the blink of an eye! It doesn’t seem possible that this much time has passed… It literally seems like yesterday that we walked up that isle… 

We had a great group of groomsmen and bridesmaids to help us that day!

We have taken a few days off to celebrate and wind down. Nothing fancy, just some time together. 

Jo’s grandfather walked her down the isle that day. I found this picture of him and it did my heart good. He was a very special person in Jo’s life. And our life together. ❤️

Thanks for all the calls and texts wishing us a happy day! And here’s to another 27 years together! 

Cheers 🥂

Callin’ It in …

I just had to amend my Blog today… it was on deck to publish… and I forgot to pull the trigger 😳 

This was last years Anniversary photo… a 26 year comparison shot. Not to shabby 😊

I, WE are taking a few day’s off to celebrate and to try and slow it down a little… Jo and I always try to plan some time around our Anniversary & we both look forward to time together. The years are literally flying by… But, I’ve apparently been having fun, because I haven’t really noticed 😊 

So, we are gonna take a break for a few days and try to relax. I will share some pics from the road over the next few days. 

Thanks 🙏🏻 Have a great weekend!
