Photo Hunt Me or part of me

I know some of you are going to think I am cheesy but..... I tried eyes (which I love)but I am so tired, my pretty painted toes, My calves (which show how hard I work out to try to be healthy) everything felt kind of ......voyeuristic and then---- You know me I started thinking about the actual word(s)of this weeks photohunt challenge' me or part of me'
.... well my sweet husband is such a part of me after 25 years I
decided I wanted to show our hands together -- we are linked in love and purpose--- Now, no one would mistake our hands for the the other one's because his skin is reddish showing a little of his hidden Apache and mine is more yellowish showing my heritage. I love that this photo shows his strength-- you would have to know us to know I am much more strong willed -- he is calm and stands by me as I rant and fly around at times. He quietly leads our family (and the same at work and church) with dignity, honor and love--my children can say they have probably never heard him raise his voice. I am so grateful he and I have rubbed off on each other over the years to become better individuals and ONE.


SO the best part of me includes him:)

Hi Marcia, it's Leslie in Australia of Kaleidsoscope.

You asked me about Portofino - I have stayed in Liguria three times and on the last trip there in 2006, went up to the castle up above Portofino.

We stay in Santa Margherita Ligure, just 20 minutes away, and go to have cappuccino and a stroll through glitzy Portofino. :)
