    Having my morning coffee, enjoying the view of the beautiful caribbean, and remembering our gift of time together. This post with pictures of St. Maarten and Virginia, as well as the other beautiful photos, is especially meaningful. Thank you and Butch for so beautifully capturing our memories.
