Happy Valentine's Day and the Winner of February Favorite Friday Foto!

I know you've been waiting to see which photo received the most votes this week, so here it is. . .

Beside Still Waters

I took this photo August 2 last year while hiking in RMNP with Dennis. He had given me his extra camera just a few weeks before. When I downloaded the photos and saw this on my Mac screen, I knew photographing God's beautiful creation was going to be one of my passions. Sharing them with you is a joyful experience for me.

A huge thank you to all of you who took the time to comment and vote for your favorite photo. I put all your names in a hat -- well, okay, it was actually an empty Quaker Oats container -- and  Dennis pulled out a name. The winner of the $5 Starbucks Card e-Gift is Janet. Congratulations Janet! You'll be receiving your prize via email.

In the middle of posting the February Favorite Foto Friday photos last Friday, I heard a knock on the door. When I opened it, a nice man in a brown uniform handed me this box. . .

Inside the box I discovered this card. . .

and this. . .
which became these. . .
Aren't they gorgeous?

Dennis and I are celebrating our first wedding anniversary today. We were married on Valentine's Day 2010 in the Fawnbrook Inn in Allenspark, Colorado. . .
Dennis promises at least 29 more joyful anniversaries. I'm holding him to that promise!

"Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others."
Philippians 2:1-4, NIV


  1. How romantic getting married on Valentine's Day. Have a wonderful day. Love you!

  2. Happy anniversary!! God does write the best love stories!

  3. So, you are "Sparky"? that really seems to fit. I love your posts and your pictures. Keep makin' my day, Nancy.

  4. Ha-ha, Yes, Dena, Sparkey is Dennis' nickname for me. And he is Captain (Captain of my heart). Corny? Yeah, probably, but we don't care. ;-) Thanks for your comments. Your blog is one of my favorite reads.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
