Day 02 – A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.

My love, my husband, my best friend, of course … Scott Troutman … 35 years married this November and 36 years in love. This picture was taken five years ago. I wanted to be among the lilacs.

We are polar opposites and it hasn’t been easy for either of us. But we’ve whittled away at the stuff that isn’t really important anymore and we’re left with a (fairly) peaceful love and companionship that only comes with time.

Day 03 – A picture of the cast from your favorite show

My favorite tv show is Parenthood. Yes, it has some things I turn the channel on, but overall, it is the truest show about real families with real personalities and real family dynamics that we’ve ever seen. Perhaps it’s because we relate to so much of it. It tackles some very real and important issues. AND … it’s not focused on being PC, which drives us bonkers about other shows. We try not to miss it and got frustrated at all the times it was pre-empted by something else. We usually cry at the end of every show. We’re saps.


Day 04 – A picture of your night …

Our comfortable, welcoming bed. Our favoriate way to spend a night. The older we get, the harder it is to sleep away from home. Has anyone else used their electric blanket a lot longer this year?
