Great News for the New Year

Happy New Year! Our daughter Stephanie just became engaged. She and her beau were at Disneyland at night standing in front of the castle which had been lit up for the holidays when he got down on one knee, pulled out a ring box, and popped the question. She said yes. He said she couldn’t stop crying. My Beloved and I are pleased, proud, and happy for them. May they be blessed with much joy, good health, and peace.

Here’s a link to a shot of the happy moment:

With Love,

About russtowne

I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
