....because it also happens to be my anniversary. Mr. Willoughby and I were married 21 years ago, on April 22, 1989. Honestly, at the time, I had never even heard of Earth Day, so we didn't choose the date for that reason. It is kind of nice, though, to think of people making the world a more beautiful place by planting trees and flowers on the anniversary of the day we began our life together. 100 years from now, after we're long gone, this day will still be celebrated. I think that's pretty special even if it is just a coincidence.
