Week of the Husbands


This week, on a couple blogs I check out regularly, the owners have posted photos of their hubbies. One because her husband of 31+ years died on Sunday after a brain stroke several days prior. The other because she and her husband are celebrating 17 years of marriage (congratulations!). I decided to follow suit, because this week is significant for my husband, as well: He finished his master's degree. Yesterday he submitted his final assignment, completing his work for a Master of Library Science degree. I am SO proud of him! This picture was taken in the fall at Rooks Park, the largest and probably the most popular park in the Walla Walla Valley. There are MANY acres of land here, including a man-made reservoir, a river (I believe it's used for irrigation somewhere along the line), hundreds of trees, and miles of walking trails. It's a beautiful park. Here my husband is sitting on what appears to be an old cement drinking fountain.

What a beautiful study of your thoughtful hubby. I love it. Congrats to him for all that hard work!

I would imagine that he’d be relieved to get it out of the way. Congratulations! Onto dissecting books! ;)

Oh yes, I got it.

That is a great portrait. Well done him for finishing (I'm just about to start writing a thesis, I'd much sooner be at the end of the process!).

Tomorrow my husband and I celebrate our 8 month luniversary, so we've got a bit of a way to go to catch you up!

I rather expected to see him in the pose of "The Thinker"! :) Nice photo. We're proud of him, too.
