I Never Forget Earth Day....

....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.

Happy Anniversary!

I share my birthday with the second atom bomb that was dropped on Japan in 1944, on Nagasaki. Also the day Nixon resigned, which was a year before I was born.

I'd rather share a special day with something cool, like Earth Day.

¡Viva la tierra!

those are nice pictures on the link.
Everyone makes a mark on the world and since you're a mom there's a good chance 100 years from now your descendants will be remembering you.

I do wonder what these blogs will become in 100 years.

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! There is no better way to say it. congratulations for the first 21 years. A great record.
What a fortunate coincidence with the Earth Day! Every year, to celebrate together with millions of people a "clean" life on this planet. A great message.

Happy belated Anniversary! We were on a school trip to DC in 1990 on Earth Day and we had no idea about it either. :)

I hate spiders too!
