Capture my Heart...Focus on Life Week 5

When I think of capturing my heart of course I think of my hubby and family.  I met my husband at a Super Bowl Party 25 years ago, when the Redskins played the Broncos. We both went with friends and I thought he was cute so I kept serving him nachos. We bet dinner on the game and as they say the rest is history.

When we got married he gave me this great poem about  a tree and how it has roots and will grow and outlive a rose. For the life of me I can not find it, but I feel like a tree captures all my hearts.

It has  roots that represent my family and ancestors, a trunk that represents my partner and branches that include my boys and extended family and friends that have accumulated.

I thought I might sketch a tree, but decided to take some pictures of two of my favorite trees in my yard,  a dogwood and a Dawn Redwood.

I gave the Dawn Redwood to my husband as an anniversary present several years ago.

I started shooting pictures of the tree from the deck and decided to get a close up and there on our Dawn Redwood  a heart bark...wow!

Thank you for all the lovely comments last week a write up about the beads that came out of the kiln  is here.
