The Great Frederick County Fair is winding down today. I am proud to say that our strawberries and concord grapes were not only delicious but when made into jam they garnered the coveted prize of blue ribbon.
That is correct my wife won blue ribbons for her strawberry, Concord grape and blackberry jams. I could not be prouder or in awe as much as I am.
It is little things, like blue ribbons, that give us the motivation and determination to be successful. My wife is a formidable opponent when she sets her mind to something. Sometimes I really hate that about her (especially when I do not get my way) but most times, it is her words that help even out the failures and pitfalls that I write about here.
So here is to you, I could not be prouder or buoyed more by your success and determination. These are but some of a million reasons that I can point to, as to, why I love her. Blue Ribbons it does not get any better then that.
