Welcome! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by. My hope is that something in these posts encourages you, especially if you’re struggling. And I hope the photos and little ramblings prompt you to notice the wonder that’s right in front of you. This is a challenge for me. I get so focused on the goal that I forget to enjoy the journey. When I carry my camera, I’m a lot more aware of beauty, oddities, charm, color. So exploring with camera in hand adds dimension and joy to my life, and I love sharing my discoveries with you!
I’m a word person. Reading, writing, and editing give me such pleasure. I’m thankful I get to work full-time as a consumer health information writer and editor. Another passion of mine is music. I’m teaching piano to a wonderful bunch of musicians — some in grade school and some retired. I love them all.
I live in sunny San Diego, California with my husband Curt. We have a daughter, Megan, who married her love Chris last year! They live in Kansas. We treasure visits with them.
We have a son, Matt, who married his love Bethany. Now we have four of the grandest grands ever. They live in Michigan. Last year Chris and Meg joined us when we visited from Michigan. We loved being all together!
Feel free to look around here, relax, soak up a bit of encouragement. I’m glad you’re here!
As a thank you for stopping by, please enter to win this fun 3-piece cosmetic bag set from Adrienne Vittadini. I’m always looking for attractive and practical bags for everything from make-up to toiletries to jewelry. I’m finding it’s easier to organize with smaller bags instead of cramming too much in one. And matching bags, too? Love them! Just leave a comment to be entered. Winner will be announced February 15.
