Focus on Life 2014: Week 7 - Collage of LOVE

It's week 7 for the Focus on Life 2014 Weekly Photography Challenge and Sally over at the Studio Sublime has given us the theme of "Cabin Fever" for the month of February and our prompt this week is:
Collage of Love
"One of the best ways to beat the feeling of cabin fever is to feel the L❤VE!  It may be as simple as that warm and oh so  inviting cup of coffee, the cold nose of your four legged family member or the smell of a certain flower!  This week l❤ve is everywhere and it's your job to capture it, no bow and arrow needed, just a camera! "
It's been a very packed week this week, so I cheated on my collage and grabbed pics I had already taken.  But, they are things I love and it was a good thing I looked for some photos because I found there's tons missing on my computer and they're not on the back up hard drive either.
Were'd they go?  Your guess is as good as mine.
But, we are in the middle of retrograde, so this is not a surprising discovery.
Disappointing yes, unexpected no.  

I even searched some of the sub-folders thinking I'd dropped them in to the wrong place by accident. Nope. No luck. So, I spent a good portion of time searching and backing up newer things.
Back to this week's prompt,...
I snagged a silly shot of my boys awhile back and although it's blurry, I still love it.
I love them!
I love Pearls (ya, think?!!)
I love where I live.
And I love Coco and Kiki. (Crazy Lovebirds!!)
On Valentine's Day, Arizona celebrated its 102nd birthday.
On Valentines Day 20 years ago, Mike proposed.
On Valentine's Day 6 years ago, Iron Man (aka-Mike) got a 'defib' put in his chest that they now say he doesn't need (figures, right?!) but that we have been thankful for.
Valentine's Day is a good day!
Until Next Time,
Peace and LOVE!
Please check out all the other participants this weekend and see what they LOVE!!


  1. Great collage, Shel! Your hubby and son are both very handsome fellas :) xx

  2. Great shot of the boys and a gorgeous sunset. I knew that you would include pearls. I included beads in mine.

  3. Oh my gosh - I am so sorry to hear about your photos. I got a Carbonite back-up last year for my PC but got a new iMAC for Christmas and now either need to pay extra or figure out a different system. I hope your pics are not lost forever. And I agree. Let's try to meet up some time locally. Happy engagement anniversary!
