Oh...

That is just so lovely. Thank you for sharing with us.

I am in Portland, Oregon now since 2004 when I left Atlanta. Had been there full time after College in Seattle since 2001. Grew up in the Upper Midwest. Lived in Columbus, GA for 3 years in late 80’s while in the Military. Love Savannah still as well as all the coast there and the southern swamps and miss fireflies and thunderstorms tremendously. 
Still have friends in Atlanta and miss them too. 
My daughter was born in Atlanta but was just learning to walk when I left.

   I have had company the last week so wasn't able to come here except to NOPE one day.  What a beautiful memorial to your Daddy.  He sounds so special to you and I can tell you loved him to the moon and back.  Your memorial brought laughter and tears to me, thank you so much for sharing.  I would love to tell you about Pete,  I will get my thoughts together and share with you one day.

  Congratulations on 10 months.  I am so proud of us both.  Never thought I would see this day, but now I can see a year, 5 years and beyond.  Not sure when this happened but I think it was when I was putting one foot in front of the other and just not smoking.  Onward bound, my friend.  Sending you and your family big hugs.  Onward to 11...

Hi DbAnne,  Sorry I took so long to answer but there are 10 packs to a carton.  I was literally a chimney, so glad to not do that anymore.  Keep going, it gets better and better.

Thank you so much Susan!  I can’t wait to make it to the clubhouse!! heart_eyes

And now you have arrived at the clubhouse.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!

Catch you soon.

Well, you did it!!! Welcome to the Clubhouse! You earned your freedom! Only 7% of quitters actually accomplish this and now you are officially in the One Year Clubhouse! It always makes me smile when I read of new members to the clubhouse. Now just get through year 2 and you'll have an 80% chance of remaining quit for life. 

Youve definitely proven that you are no sissy. NICE JOB!!!
