What is THE (as in singular) most beautiful thing to you? The one thing that makes your heart melt and sing at the same time? The one thing that is as beautiful now as the first time you saw it?

Post up one photo to share THE most beautiful thing with us. I'll go first (and it' no surprise):


The way they feel, the way they smell, the way they sound. Though my youngest is almost 10, I can still visit these sensations by a look at a photograph. I mean, look at that adorable little rump on Gabbie! And those eyes!

Wow, I made the single photo rule and I'm having trouble sticking with only one photo already!

I make up little songs to sing to my dogs as I walk them. Half the time I'm talking to them ('watch out for that stroller. Hey, look at that!" stuff like that) and the songs just came out of it. People sometimes - okay, often - look at me wierd, but I just feel sorry for them. So uptight that they can't risk a public display of emotion.....

Anyway, one of Teddy's songs goes:

Teddy the Wonderhound
He's the best dog all around
Everyone knows that Teddy is
The best dog that there ever was
Teddy....the Won-der-ho-ounnnnnnd!

My wife and children. They are singular...they are my family.
My wife and oldest son.

I'd like to second Bob's quote. My wife and family are the most beautiful things I have(my wife has gotten even prettier since I met her 33 years ago!)

The Muir Tree at night. That whole meadow all the time.

Or my best friend, but he won't want me posting a picture of him.

I can't think of a SINGLE thing, Crimpie. Life is good. Everytime I completely stop everything, it's like breaking a pinata.

Cute birds!

The most beautiful THING I have is probably this scrimshaw pendant I have of just a womans face, eyes closed, slight smile. Sublime.

The most beautiful CREATURE in my life is my horse, hands down, he makes my heart melt. My dog ain't half bad either.

But, I am surrounded by such beauty every day that when I stop and soak it in, it brings tears to my eyes.

Many, many beautiful trees. Rocks. The way a swale dips and undulates into a little tarn. All the flowers this year! Wow!

When we stop to think of it, there is soooo much beauty around. Even in the midst of some rotten times.

My children's laughter will always be my greatest source of joy.

Thanks Crimpie, we need this thread.

There are soooo many beautiful things in my life. This barely scrathes the surface.

1. Seeing happiness in my son's faces.
2. The sight of someone I love smiling in their sleep.
3. Descending an alpine route with the sun STILL shining!

EKaterinaBallerinaOrcalinaFakeBlinnyrina, Corzo is THE stuff. Be careful though, once sipped you will have a hard time stepping back to lesser tequila. In taste tests of Corzo Reposado against Patron Anjeho, the Corzo tastes about 3 times more expensive but costs only a couple bucks more. I have yet to try the Corzo Anjeho but word is I will receive a bottle for my birthday next week and will let you know how it is. So, if you think you are a tequila snob but haven't tried Corzo, you are missing out.

Here are 3 of my most beautiful things!!

My wife Lilly, my 4 1/2 month old baby Oliver and OUR dog Le Petit.

This was the first time the baby showed interest/comprehension and pet the dog, so cute! The sad part is that this picture was about 3 hours before we had to put the pup to sleep. Last week he started bleeding out his nose and we found his platelet levels to be deadly. The bleeding stopped but the medication to help did nothing. So the vet said that if he starts bleeding again he would just bleed to death... cancer of some sort. After a gentle walk in the backyard and some fun with the baby his nose started up again last night. We wanted to make sure he didn't go into panic or distress so we put him down. The hardest thing I've ever had to do. At least he was 14 and we rescued him from an abusive home 7 years ago and had a great second half to his life! Not so much a dog as an angel to us. You dog lovers know. So, rest in peace Petit, THE most beautiful dog/angel!
