The Love of My Life


This is the man I love. Here, in an old photo, hugging his mother. He is not perfect, but he's a good man, and he's mine.

That's a lovely photo. I have a photo of Jeremiah hugging his mom, but he's flipping me off behind her back...

What a handsome man and what a poignantly beautiful photo! That is the most beautifull photo ive seen in a while.
In ref to you saying he is not perfect, i think there is PERFECTION & BEAUTY in the IMPERFECTION :) plus no one is perfect dear. Love and that connection is all that counts.
thanks for sharing the image with us

Erin: He sounds like a playful guy, lucky girl.

Marian: I totally agree with you. After spending 29 years together, some of the "flaws" have become beauty marks.

There is so much warmth and goodness in this photo. Those words completely describe the way I feel about my boyfriend, Dave. I am almost getting teary from those words. Just lovely.

Sweet photo to see a gentleman embracing his Mama.

Wowzers! He's so lucky to have you too! I wish I had a picture of my Hubby hugging his mom. I'll make sure to get a picture of my son hugging me.

Hugs!!

LOL at Erin's comment! :)

Any man who loves his mama is a good man, beautiful photograph. You're a very lucky woman with a lovely family. Why am i telling you this, i'm sure you're fully aware of that fact! haha

Hope all is well :)

There is something dashing and real about him and kind of Keith Carradine too. My favorite of all the Carradine brothers.

Thanks for the note. I do appreciate it. Maybe Kat is just getting nostalgic or something.

What a GREAT picture. I'd blow that one up and frame it. It's very sweet and captures a special moment in time.

Plus, he's a cutie. :)
