my husband

He works hard....harder than he should.
He takes care of his family....really good care of his family.
He doesn't complain when the dogs sleep in bed with us.
He puts up with my ramblings. He even says I'm entertaining.
He loves the backcountry.
He carries rocks and bones back to the truck for me when we hike.
He takes a mean photo, and here are some examples:


And, he takes me to the bus whenever I need to touch base.  
I love him for all that, and much more.

Happy Anniversary.


  1. I'm looking forward to doing some more exploring and scrambling 'round with you here in your new digs!
    Someday you will post a story about moving away from town, and show us that dirt road that leads to where your heart sings and your soul resides.
    We're lucky to have these men we love and who love us back, who carry our gifts from the land and lovingly listen to us ramble.
    These images are spectacular indeed! Are these taken in that same place you love in Colorado?
    Happy Anniversary!

    1. Hey there sister! Yes, we do have some amazing men. And our men have some wild women!
      My husband took these photos in southwestern Colorado over the recent summer and early fall. And OH YES, my wild and wonderful sister, you will be the first to know when we finally get the heck out of Dodge. Until then, ramble on!

  2. I have been playing catch up with your previous posts; I have to say I really like your photos from Unicorn Mountain. I have no experience with being in a desert; your photos certainly show case the beauty that can be found. It would be so much fun to make up the stories of The Bus travelers. Your macro photo of the mantis certainly gave me quite a start - that is one creature I am terrified off - childhood carry over, they bite and bite big! Happy Anniversary, wishing you many more joyous adventures

    1. Thanks, Mary Lou! The mountain is one of my favorite places. I love to go up there to escape the heat in the summer and watching the seasons change is amazing.
      The mantis was a pretty scary guy, he lived in the yard all summer. I would see him almost every day and loved to photograph him, but I wasn't sure it a mantis would bite. Scary to think how close I got!
      So glad you stopped by and enjoyed the photos!

  3. Gosh Julie, your blog is developing beautifully….and l love that for the first time l got to SEE you! 
    I hope that your blog and connecting with like-minded people from all around the world brings you much joy. How wonderful is it to see Mary Lou here too? :-)
    Am now following you on bloglovin’ so your every post will arrive to me on my iphone…
    Happy Anniversary to you and your amazing hubby.

    1. Yes, I finally put a photo of myself on the blog. As much as I love to take pictures, I hate having my picture taken. Thanks so much for your encouragement, it means a lot to me!
