Roger and I have had some opportunity for rest and relaxation over the last few days. For those of you who don't know, we retreated to the VA foothills (Charlottesville area) for some time at a B&B. It was nice to have not much of an agenda and to truly rest and regroup. We got to visit a few wineries in the area and re-stocked for the year. I must say that I love living in Virginia!
As many of you know, the anniversary of Charlotte's death is January 7th. We have decided that we would like to mark the day with an informal moment of remembrance. This will not be anything fancy or super-structured. Sunset is at 5:07 PM and given that Roger and I both need to work earlier in the day, we will be holding "the moment" at 4:30 PM in front of the Butterfly Bush (at our house). The plan is to release a few pink and purple balloons, sing a song or two, and maybe share some memories.
Anyone who would like to attend is welcome. We have an official invitation on our Facebook site. Maybe we'll have some hot chocolate afterwards. Contact us if you have any questions.
If you do not live close by or cannot attend and want to hold your own Moment of Remembrance, we encourage you to do whatever you feel is right. If you release a balloon, please use natural twine if possible (it's more eco-friendly).
