iHeartFaces..."adults" entry



My previous iHeartFaces "children" entry notwithstanding, I have to throw my hat in the ring (or "my jpeg on the net"?) in the adult category. Now, saying I'm publishing ANY photography in an "adult" category makes me wonder if my family will be concerned about the direction my blogging activities are going, but surely they'll read on to know what it's really about.

So I've been looking through iPhoto at my history of photographs and came across this one of my husband taken years ago when we lived in England. He's since shaved off the moustache (and with it about 10 years truth be told...it's rough being married to a suddenly younger man...sigh...) but this has always been one of my favorite photos as it represents my "in residence" family at the time. The children were all either married or in university at the time, all in the states. So Shelby and Mike were my entire family in the UK (can you hear the violins playing in the background?)

We've since moved back to Texas, adopted a "sister" for Shelby (Miss Izzie) and are closer to the rest of the family, now all grown, married and parents themselves.

Ain't life grand?

Isn't it neat how a single photo can instantly take you back to a time in your life, and all the memories coming pouring in? Thanks for sharing a treasured photo with the blogging world!

Photographs are powerful! Maybe I should talk my hubby in shaving (shedding a few years) his mustache, hahahehe.

Great picture! I love the name Shelby, if I had my way, one of my daughters would have that name. My daughter's middle name is Cheri by the way, its said "shur-ee"
