Lillian and Camilla February 2021 Date Day

Part 1: Fries and garlic knots from Noble Pie Parlor – Summit Reno, with a salad made by me. First time having the garlic knots …. Delicious!!!

We already knew we love their fries. I’m so thrilled to have this amazing restaurant so close to us!!! Snickerdoodle cookie for Lillian for dessert, heirloom sea salt chocolate for me.

Part 2: A walk on one of our favorite walking trails. Thomas learned to ride a bike on this trail. Many memories here. They sneak up and grab you when you least expect it. ❤️❤️❤️

We had a part 3 to the Lillian and Camilla February 2021 Date Day.
Reading together … 🥰🥰🥰

The Wall of Love by Marco Santini Art – Featuring Artwork by Lillian Darnell

February 15 2021

This is such an amazing and beautiful endeavor. Just magical. The Wall of Love by Marco Santini Art, surrounded by artwork submitted from people around the world, including Lillian Darnell, from Reno, Nevada!

If you’re near East Harlem in New York go have a look! Lillian’s artwork is hanging on the far right. Rick zooms into hers at 6:46 if you want to see it. Thank YOU to everyone involved. It blesses me so to see Lillian’s abstract art as part of this installation with the message of love and inclusion. We love and miss you Rick Guidotti and Liz Matejka Grossman!! xoxo Keep spreadin’ the love!

Team TLC 2021 Valentine’s Day

February 14 2021

Happy Happy Happy Valentine’s Day to my forever loves. Love you, Thomas and Lillian, forever and ever, always and always …. 💖💖💖 … I made each of them a heart shaped crystal sun catcher (with crystal beads). Sending oceans of love to all of you, too … 💜💜💜

Thank you to The Romano Duo for delivering Valentine’s Day gifts, too! Hyacinths and an adorable red monkey for me. I was today years old when I learned how much I needed a fluffy red monkey. A beautiful plant for Thomas, and a rose plant for Lillian. Thank you Romano Duo!! 💚💚💚

Happy Happy Happy 19th Birthday to Lillian Darnell

Today, Monday, 9.14.20, at 4:00pm PST Lillian Darnell and I will be live for about 30 minutes so her friends and YOU can help her celebrate her 19th birthday!

We had plans to go to the arboretum this morning, then a poolside BBQ with The Romano Duo this afternoon. But …. Air Quality from the fires in California is in the unhealthy range. 😢😢😢 … We will still do all planned but will have to be another day …

Please join us. She’s had a rough time, not being able to have our typical dates since mid-March. She’s not been inside anywhere since then. We hope to see as many of you as possible! Much love to you! xoxo (We will have Zoom as back up should facebook live not play nice. Last year we kept losing our connection!)


Opening gifts.


The “LIVE” celebration on facebook …


The goodies. The cake looks like hell, but tasted like heaven. It’s vegan. It’s gluten free. It’s delicious. Looks had to fall by the way side. 🤪

Why so many photos blowing out the candles? Up until the 10th birthday or so, Lillian could not “blow” to blow out candles. Still takes a few times. But she can blow wind now!!

Look at this super cool gift that Lillian received from her friend. Thank you, Macy Miller! I hope she lets me help put it together.
