Throwback Post: 30 Day Journey of Giving


October 16 2012:

Just thought I’d share with y’all what I’ll be up to for the next 30 days … Happy Tuesday .. It’s a GREAT day to be alive!

30 Day Journey of Life: Giving

“Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.” -Mother Teresa

And so it is … I accept and realize that to become enlightened and enrich my own life I must stop searching, trying so hard, and waiting for some “thing” to happen. I must be that which I seek. I am embarking on a Journey of Life on this very day. For at least the next year, I plan to dedicate myself to a different 30 Day Journey of Life at the beginning of every new 30 days.

The first 30 Day Journey of Life begins today …. GIVING. I will give of myself like ….

Throwback Post: Improvising and Living in a Tiny Home


October 16 2015:

Just published the next blog post about living in our tiny place … “This update is all about improvising and using what I already have on hand. I love being able to use whatever I’ve got and creating exactly what I want, exactly when I want it. FUN!” This one covers removing closet doors, creating screen doors, creating walls, and meeting some new little furry friends. Hope y’all enjoy it! xoxo

Throwback Post: Gratitude With Kindness While Chatting and Stepping Out of the Comfort Zone


October 17 2013:

Thank you tons and tons and tons to my awesome step-father, Frank C. Romano Jr, for coming over today and fixing the light in Thomas’ room and the kitchen table chairs!! Thomas has been without a main light in his room since this summer …. the pull chain thingy came right off in my hand when I was trying to turn the light on one night! Let there be light and un-wobbly dinner chairs to place our bottoms!! Love you dude!! xoxo

And sometimes what we are about to step into is gonna shock the heck out of us . . . It’s uncomfortable when we first step out of our comfort zone; but what a thrill and adventure it will be . . . Let’s Go!

Throwback Post: Thomas and Camilla October 2014 Date Day


October 17 2014:

Lillian is spending the night with The Romano Duo so Thomas and I get to have a day and a half long date! Went for a walk and then played Thomas’ Arcade. This is what he made for the cardboard challenge. Looks easy and simple. That’s what I thought! No way! You have to flick the little balls of tape out the other side. But they get stuck in the tape traps! FUN!

Movie night for the October 2014 Camilla n Thomas date … Love watching this every October. I usually watch it alone. It was fun to watch with Thomas this time. Charge!!!!

Team TLC Reality TV

January 6 2024

Last night I was reminded of something our friend Matt Miller commented while having dinner with us at one of the C18 conferences years ago.

He laughed and said something like, the 3 of you (Team TLC) would make a great realty TV show.

The three of us haven’t done a creative activity together in years. The past two nights we worked on this puzzle together (my birthday gift to Lillian last year).

Imagine 3 neurodivergent folks, one with hand tremors, one with shaky hands, and all with the ability to hyper focus, getting anxious trying to get the right pieces in the right places. It’s like we were playing a game of Twister with our hands. It was cracking me up! And I think it brought joy to all of us! ❤❤❤
We lost one piece along the way somewhere. Maybe Basil knows where it is.

After we finished, time stood still for a moment as I watched Lillian walking around the house half-naked, like it’s no big deal and totally normal, Thomas frantically working on a deadline, and me making songs out of everything. Totally normal stuff, right? Ha!

Like the neighbor walks by with their dog. I finally remember the dogs name, Mickey. So then I start singing, Hey Mickey, you’re so fine, Hey Mickey, Hey Mickey. Then I have to look that song up and add it to my walking playlist.
Love my life.
