My Birthday Boy

Georgie has a birthday tomorrow...  We are going to have a FABULOUS weekend!!!!!  SO--today's blog is ALL about him!!!!  I truly am the most blessed woman in the entire world.  There's NOBODY who could make me more happy than he does.   I had a LONG list of what I wanted in a man ---and God gave me everything I wanted PLUS more.  Thank You, George,  for coming into my life and bringing me so much happiness and love. 

Today,  I'm going to honor George by sharing SIX of his special photos --which he loves taking with his special filters and his tripod when we are near moving water.  These six photos were taken on January 23, 2013 when we were enjoying the Smokies, in the Tremont area.  Please click on the photos for enlargements.

We were lucky to be in the Smokies during a time when there was high water.  I have more of George's great photos, that I'll show you another time. These were when we were at the Greenbrier area of the Smokies on January 24, 2013.  I think the Greenbriar photos are even prettier than the Tremont ones, if that is possible.  Hope you enjoy seeing these gorgeous photos.    







It is fun for me to watch George as he takes photographs.  This is such a PASSION of his ---and when he's enjoying himself,  then I am also enjoying watching him, and being with him.




Here's one more collage of this wonderful man  I put together.   All of these photos were taken on that trip to the Smokies on January 23 and 24, 2013.

Please take a few minutes and go to George's blog (click HERE) and wish him a very Happy Birthday!!!!

Again,  a special thanks for "MY GEORGE" for everything you give to me... Hope we have a great weekend celebrating the big 71st.   (My 71st is in August!!!)...   Happy Happy Birthday to the Man I love more than life itself.

Hope you have a great weekend... Celebrate with us --whatever you are doing!!!  We will be off the computer most of the weekend --so we won't be doing much blogging.  Will catch up with you next week!!!!

Be sure also to check out my new PHOTO BLOG (click HERE).   AND---sign-up to follow me there so that you won't miss the next one!!!!

Hugs,

Linda Gross said...

As I was reading your blog post and looking at the water photographs that George took, I thought HE might enjoy becoming a member of a Facebook photo group that I created at the end of December last year. I will send him an invite. If George joins the group, and you think you would like to be a part of the group as well, he can invite you :-)

Have a great weekend (I know you will). Happy birthday to George!

I love the pictures he takes of flowing streams. They are so beautiful and I love how you profess your love for him. It, too, is beautiful.
Obviously I am playing 'catch-up' again but will wish him Happy Belated Birthday. He doesn't need too much excitement at one time!
