Two years ago...

Two years ago today, we were winding down to Grace's high school graduation.
Today, we're winding down to Spencer's high school graduation.
It all seems very similar, doesn't it?
Except, two years ago today, Earl and I were in France to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. This year, we are in Ohio.
I'm not saying there is anything wrong with Ohio. It's a nice place to live, but you wouldn't want to visit...
Here we are at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

It wasn't our actual anniversary until June, but we decided to avoid the crowds by visiting Paris in April. We also needed to go before we started making college payments in June.

Here we are on a bridge over the Seine. I'm never sure which one.
We even went to visit some friends in Nantes and then walked along the cliffs by the Atlantic.
The scenery is gorgeous and quite a contrast to the Ohio scenery.

How about you? Where were you two years ago? Are you in a better place now?

In January 2010, we were on a cruise through the Panama Canal, to celebrate our wedding anniversary (forty years). It was special, brilliant ... and this year I am here in the garden, but soon we shall travel to Ireland and take part in the traditional musiv there.
I love to travel, but I also love living up this hillside. We have never lived anywhere for as long as we have lived here.
Great post!

Linda's comment because I did exactly the same thing. I have trouble keeping track of the years! I too was at Provence...counting my blessings.


During lockdown, Earl went to the market one day with express instructions to buy plants for our very small garden. We had heard that t...
