Love is a Many Splendored Thing
Who is the love of your life? Who makes your heart sing? Make this post a tribute to the love, or loves, of your life.
When I first saw the title of this very last subject, The Mamas and The Papas song " (This is) dedicated to the one I love" immediately sprang to mind. And has resided there ever since. Can I get that tune out of my head now? Nope, of course not, lol.
Of course, I dearly love all my family, my mum and step dad, whom I don't see nearly often enough as they live in Germany -
( this was on their last visit here in England in 2008 )
My parents-in-law, who are the most active 80somethings I have ever known -
My boys, all grown up now and in their twenties, how the heck did that happen?
DH, No.1 son and No.3 son, rare occasion, all suited up for Grace's Christening -
No.2 son and almost-daughter-in -law, cutting the christening cake
My beautiful granddaughters -
Our doggies, they are so much part of our family -
And then there is my DH, I really don't know how he has managed to stick with me and all my eccentricities and goofiness for 29 years.
This is a photo from our wedding day, it has faded over the years because it has always been out in a frame, but its still us -
Still as handsome as he was nearly 30 years ago, perhaps a little bit grey instead of blond, and perhaps a few more laughter lines, ahem, thats what they are, yep
building a cross to replace the one on our land in France which was struck by lightning 40 years ago
With our very first dog, Harry
and with our beautiful Bobbiegirl, who was such a funny character, in the garden in France, in his favourite place -
Never too old to make a complete fool of himself -

And proving that a 50something can enjoy the snow just as much as a kid
at the cottage in France -
and here in England, in the Firehills near Hastings -
I can't see us ever growing up and becoming "proper" adults, lolol, we have too much fun being completely bonkers.
