My Inspiration Board

There are lots of things pinned up on the inspiration board above my work desk, but I think this picture of Chad and I, is the most important one. Others around it come and go; get put up, get taken down and replaced with new ones, but this one’s been there for 12 years.

Happy anniversary Chadasaurus. YOU are my Inspiration.

Your Marinamal.
