52 Week Smartphone Challenge: Week 4: Warmth

📷 Bhavna and I met in university back in 1987. We knew each other from our involvement in campus club it would be another 5 years before we had our first date, and then two more after that before we were married. On our hike back from Buttermilks Falls, she asked me, "Why did you marry me". I answered with a few joke answers, "You look hot in a red dress", etc. Later at home, warming our cold bodies under a blanket, I looked at her and said, "I like that you patiently listen to my wacky thoughts".

Submitted for my 52 Week Smartphone Challenge.


Day 93 of #iPhone #365

Many years ago, my elementary school child, Shaan, came home from school with a small sapling wrapped in newspaper. For Earth Day he had learned about trees and the environment and native plants. He wanted to plant the sapling to help the environment. So we found a spot in the backyard and planted his sapling. At first, we planted it near the fence but Shaan felt that the landscapers would kill the sapling with the lawnmowers. We planted the sapling, which I later learned was sassafras, near the deck under his bedroom window. My child is now a college Junior and the sapling is now a tree that never seems to stop growing.
