As you can tell, I haven't been online very much lately. That's because all my spare time is spent with my eX-boyfriend who is now my current boyfriend (and I use the term "boy" very loosely). When we were together all those years ago, we were really just kids, even though we were in our early to mid-20s, and we didn't know how to deal with difficulties or intrusions into our relationship. Now with the passage of time and having become mature in body, mind, and spirit, we find that we truly were meant to be together. That "je ne sais quoi" is still there and is even stronger than before. We don't worry about the fact that the hair may be whiter, the skin a bit saggy, and the eyesight weaker. We can see beyond that all the way to the heart and soul. Now that we've been given a second chance at love, we're going to make each day count. Every time we look into each other's eyes, we know how eXtremely lucky we are. As I took this photo, we joked about being at the crossroads of a new life together.
Thanks to Denise Nesbitt for hosting this weekly ABC Wednesday. As we approach the end of the alphabet for the third time, I am hoping that she'll continue to host it because it's fun and challenging to me to try to come up with something unique. Be sure to pop over to the special site for ABC Wednesday to see more photos and stories from people all over the world. You won't be disappointed.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
