Wow! That’s right. Today marks my 43rd Wedding Anniversary. Yes, I’ve been married to the same person for over 40 years. It was my first and the way I see things, destined to be my only marriage. I was raised in a family with a heritage that believes marriage is a life-long commitment, for better or worse. The thing is when you get this far down the road, you learn that everything worth pursuing in life comes with challenge. There are no perfect people or situations. 

This anniversary, like many in the past several years, I am over 1,000 miles away from my husband. Our goal, of course, was to be together on this special day, but life circumstances prevented that. We are at peace with the situation and are optimistic that next year at this time we will be able to celebrate our anniversary together in person. 

I’ve owned a GoPro Hero 4 since Christmas 2015 and have yet to use it for live streaming video experiences to Facebook or Twitter. Today I found an instructional video on YouTube that inspired me to take action. Because it is too windy outside today I won’t be able to go for a bike ride but I’m optimistic about tomorrow’s weather and getting prepared to stream tomorrow’s ride live. I’ve not decided whether I’m going to use Twitter or Facebook as the platform to stream to, though. I’ll save that decision to the final moments. Meanwhile, here’s the video instructions:

If you prefer, you can watch the video directly from YouTube here.
