My One and Only

I'm snowed in...again. 
Instead of snow photos
enjoy a little heart bokeh instead. 

A Bowl of Love 

Hearts on Fire  

The Tiara 

It's Getting Steamy 

My First Love 

Randomness...About Love and Cameras
The First Love (above) just so happened to come with a husband. 
I am happy to say, I still have them both.
I would have neither
- the camera or the husband -
if I hadn't fractured my foot
running to the oven to keep brownies from burning.
The fractured foot caused me to meet my one-and-only.
My one-and-only and I
will be married 30 years
in December.
(I am planning a big trip to celebrate.
He'll learn about that when he reads this. )
In those 30 years
my one-and-only
has given me 6 cameras
and tons of camera gear.
And that's why he is still my 

Come along....The Party's Here
And be sure to Get Social.  I love bumping into my friends in cyberspace too!

my hubby is my keeper. He spoils me. We are growing older to-gether and I love every moment too. . Who would ever think I would fall in love with a Dutch guy. My Mom did.

She said when I was 15 . Your going to marry a Dutch guy. I said why. Your too fussy around the house and you never wear shoes. You drop them off a the door. She was right. I met him at 16. He came to Canada. I got married at 19. He comes from a Family of 9 including him as the oldest. . Now we are married 52 years this pass Sept. We have three beautiful grown up kids now. Kids ha-ha. They each gave us two Grand babies who are all now in teen age and one Granddaughter is going to be 21. How blessed you are too. reading your blog My daughter and hubby will be 25 years married and her hubby surprised her going to Hawaii . He told her last week. Also taking the two kids. She is astatic. As they are a close knit family with the kids big time. Well the son is 17 and the grandchild is 21. So my daughter went and got her beautiful long hair cut about 6 inches off and surprised him. The family is going end of April. I admire your friendship too hubby and you.
