It was so much fun exploring Ball’s Falls Conservation Area with Amanda & Cory and their amazing Coordinator/Bridesmaid, Michelle! It was a cloudy, crisp, early morning. Perfect for snuggles. And it was pretty obvious how much these two love each … Continue reading
I love my back yard. It’s lush and green with bits of colour sprinkled all around it. Spring is a great time to just inhale the fresh, fragrant air and let it wash those winter cobwebs away. It’s been a … Continue reading
Well, we’re back at the Laurelwood Inn in beautiful Coudersport, PA. This time, as you can see, we trailered the bike down to avoid getting wet and cold on the way down. Paul and Christine were there to welcome all … Continue reading

I had never been to an 1812 reenactment before. My friend, Michael, takes part and invited me to come and see what this epic event was all about. Since it was in my back yard (Cooks Mills is part … Continue reading
It’s not much … just a slight change. A little softer and a little sweeter. I’m finding my wings! So it seemed appropriate to add them to my name. My photography journey has taken a great turn this year. I’ve … Continue reading

I finally get to show off my son. He’s a busy guy and hard to get time with. So, this year as my Christmas gift from him, I asked for an hour of his time. He just smiled and said … “sure, mom …. when do you want to get together?” Well, when the snow started to fall yesterday and covered the ground I called and he came.
My dad gave each of his kids a package of old photos of us at Christmas this year. When I went through them, I realized that there were pictures of us as young kids and pictures from our weddings and our families.
