Valentine's Weekend: a photo essay

love of food
love of self 
(Ellie embraces her new-found curves and luscious hair)
love of art
love of spouse
love of family

Could there be a better Valentine's celebration?  No, there could not.


  1. LOVE it... especially that Ellie belly!! Way to go little girl! And that pic of you & Joe in the ceiling mirror-- awesome.

  2. That first comment startled me for a sec. I thought Hey! I didn't write that! Did someone hack my account? Was it Nate? Ha!

    Well, she must be cool, because that's what I was going to say.

  3. so very cute whit!!!

    love you <3

  4. What beautiful strawberries, my mouth began to water...I scrolled down...there's another one...another scroll...Oh my goodness there's Chocolate! I suppose your the kind of person who'd give a drowning man a glass of water. Does Young Joe Hardie realize what a lucky man he is?

  5. Wow those strawberries look awesome. You'll be shooting for "Taste of Home" before you know it. Loved the pics of Ellie - she's filling out. She looks great! Loved the picture in the elevator. Hard to get pics of the photographer. Thanks, too, for wonderful valentine from Ellie- it is hanging on the refrig door. I must be the luckiest mom in the world to have a fabulous photographer daughter-in-law.

  6. Seriously? Chocolate covered strawberries? I am drooling over here. I bet they tasted good, if not better than they looked:)
