I’d love to share a photo of me and my husband retired and traveling the world, but it’s a difficult shot, even with my Nikon, as it hasn’t yet happened. Instead, I’ll share this bit of future waiting to happen, while outside the rain-snow mix and wind continue, a spring day in NE Illinois.  🙂

    🙂 Can you imagine how pretty it is when the bloom has opened and the sun is out?
    Greeting from rainy, cold Vienna and have a very HAPPY weekend! 🙂

    An awesome shot and excellent take on the future. Hope you and your husband will get to retire soon so that we can see some photos but in the meantime, here’s my take on the challenge – enjoy! http://wp.me/p2CNyA-2XO

    • Gale, you’ll be seeing photos whether we retire for some time or not, but that will be a wonderful day. Heading over to take a look at your entry.
