In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
My neighborhood friends and I gathered this evening for a lovely "Pearls of Wisdom" dinner in honor of Caroline, who will be getting married in November. This has become a lovely tradition as each of us has had a child marry. It is different from a bridal shower. Instead of gifts, each lady writes down some advice for the bride, sharing her "pearls of wisdom'. The pages are put into a scrapbook for the bride. The "pearls" always bring laughter and sometimes tears and lots of love!
