23 Reasons

This is a recent photo I snapped of my husband at Penzey Spices in Houston. It's one of his "happiest places on earth," I think.  I like it.  I like him.  Today we are celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary and this photo inspired me to make a list of 23 reasons I would marry this man all over again (in no particular order).

1.  He has been part of my life longer and more consistently than anyone not related to me by birth.  He knows me well.  The good, the bad and the boring parts.  He knows it all and he still wants to spend more years with me.  It's hard to find that in a person.

2.  He loves with a passion and dedication that very few people understand.  I don't get it most of the time.  He loves deep and he loves wide.  Once you are in the folds of his life, he will never, ever, EVER let you go.  And that's a good thing.  Really.

Yard Photos

So that I don't clog up my Instagram feed (any more than usual), I'm posting some nature photos from our yard taken today.  Just trying to get back into the habit of using my Nikon D90 a bit more -- though I still have a lot to learn and improve on -- and wanted to share some of the fun things I captured.

WARNING: These pictures do contain some insects and reptiles, so if you are not the kind of person who likes looking at those kinds of things, please skip this post.
