If you can, check out this amazing story, done by Story Corps. It is the sweetest, most loving thing I have heard in a long time. You can find it under "Danny and Annie" from Story Corps on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNfvuJr9164&feature=player_detailpage#t=50s
Get some tissues and sit back and watch. Then go kiss your loved ones!

Relaxing in Hawaii - so beautiful! Not able to post photos due to hotel internet restrictions but we have taken some lovely ones of Pearl Harbor and the sights around Waikiki. We'll be sure to share them with you when we return!

We spent four happy days with my brother and his family from Oklahoma City here this week. It was great to see how my dad perked up while he was here, because it was nonstop action with three growing boys in the house. Family medicine can be the best kind. It will be sad to see them go but we are hoping that holiday time might bring them back. I'm already starting my letter, "Dear Santa, Please send that cute white van this way in December. I promise I will be good . . . ."

Paul and I were married on July 1, 2011 in a lovely, small and intimate ceremony at our church, The Chapel at Crosspoint, by our pastor, Jerry Gillis. My parents and our children were in attendance. We feel very blessed to be surrounded by these family members and friends. Afterward, we took a "mini-moon" to Niagara Falls, Canada to the Sheraton overlooking the Falls. We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing with family and friends in what was a picture-perfect holiday weekend here in WNY. Many thanks to all who sent us their cards, prayers and best wishes!

I just saw this charming drawing on another website. Loved the bike, the basket, the books!

There was a sign at my grocery store (Wegman's) today that said, "There may be pits at times." Philosophy at the olive bar! Who knew??!! Watch out for those pits - whether they be small ones in olives, bumpy ones on the road to work, dark ones in your thoughts, deep ones with our loved ones. There may be pits ---- but may we be able to climb out or avoid them by keeping vigilant or by having someone bring us a ladder!

This photo is from Kristin Espinasse's regular e-mail called French Word-a-Day. I love the juxtaposition of the work boots and the glorious Spring flowers. No beauty comes this close to home without some effort. Waiting for the day when I put on those books and dig in to my Spring garden. Waiting for Spring . . . .

One of our librarians-in-training shared her wedding countdown blog with me recently. It is too sweet and clever not to pass on. Could there be some ideas here that we can use? How creative is the use of old books and date due pockets for invitations! I know I will be checking back regularly to see what appears! Enjoy!
Our countdown to July 1, 2011 has begun!

The groundhog says spring will be early and I swear that I can hear the entire northeast whispering "Hooray!" after what has been a tough winter so far. We had a snow day here but the promised storm has not been as bad as predicted, at least here in suburban Buffalo. Lucky for me that a sweet he-man showed up to clear the snow off my drive and sidewalks. He knows that I am under the weather and graciously took on a few hours of work to make sure the snow was completely removed.
