Texas Family

Texas Family


Last week, while driving back from Florida, we learned that my husband’s Uncle Harvey had passed on. So even though it wasn’t in the budget, we made last minute reservations to leave immediately for Texas. We got in to Connecticut late, and after a load of laundry, we left for Texas early the next morning.

It was overwhelmingly wonderful to be there. We stayed with my brother-in-law, who had a full house, which included our oldest daughter who flew in from California for the occasion. It was great to see all of the extended family shown in these photos. They are all very dear. Don’t miss the poem I posted yesterday about Harvey’s legacy of love.

Also the same week, two of the cousins got engaged; you can see them in the last two photographs below.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    These photos illustrate Genesis 33:10. “I have seen thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast pleased with me.”

    What a wonderful tribute to your husband’s Uncle Harvey! There is such a sense of Love expressed in all the faces in these beautiful photos! Forgive me for asking, but what type of camera lens did you use? The results are lovely.
