31 December 2017
This is a collection of clips we put together to remind us of some of the things we want to hang onto as we roll into 2018. Scenes include shots from Lisbon, Nazaré, Óbidos, and Berlengas, Portugal, the Rock and Roll Hallof of Fame in Cleveland, Toronto, Broadkill Beach, Delaware, and Melbourne Beach and the Walt Disney World resort in Florida. On the day we returned from Portugal, we lost Francesca, our cat of thirteen years. The experience cast a dark shadow over the following months, and we vowed to wait until the end of 2018 to discuss getting another. As you can see, that didn't happen. On a random trip to Petsmart we saw Amélie and Madeline, the sisters we adopted from the Animal Friends of Barbour County, WV. Though they didn't erase the sting of our loss, they reminded us that life does indeed go on.
