Valentine’s Day, 2002: The date that Dick and I decided we were “serious.”
Valentine’s Day, 2004: The day we were selected ahead of others to buy our new home, bypassing a waitlist.
Memorial Day: We celebrate our family’s Gemini birthdays (mine, my mom’s, and my brother’s).
First night of Hanukkah: My father’s date of death in the Jewish calendar. I do the Yarzeit candle along with the first Hanukkah candle.
I have recently retired from a marketing and technical writing and editing career and am thoroughly enjoying writing for myself and others.
