Travel Theme: Time

Time is relative to what it is affecting… Mother Nature is patient as she creates the mountains around us… with the sun, wind, sometimes rain, earthquakes, and we can barely see the changes with the naked eye.  But we get to behold the outcome…

Love these mountains, they are the protectors from the elements, as they stand guard from their lofty perch!

Travel and Couples… Yay!!!

Image

These two trees I call the “twins” because they were born the same day, planted, and guard my home so they are inseperable.

Image

My hubby and I are Happy, Healthy and In Love, and we love to laugh! We have lost a ton of weight since this picture was taken 🙂

Image

As you can tell these two have been together for a very long time! Can you guess which one is the hubby and the wife??? LOL

Image

I fell in love with this photo… such adoration at any age is a gift!

Image

Speaking of love… critters are capable of loving as well…

Image

This is my favorite picture of the love of my life, even tho it is tiny, our love is bigger than life itself!
