Partner in Crime

I have had dogs all my life and they were apart of the household/   With luck, they had water in the dog bowl, food after everyone was fed and a walk when the craziness of life didn’t take over. Then this little pup showed up,  this cute little fluff ball.   Loved stuffed animals, has more…

Winter Solstice in the City

The evening started with a Christmas concert in the city.   Filled with the energy of the season and camera in hand to explore.     The night was warm for a December winter night and the rain gave me a free pass to explore without being damp. Headed toward city hall and stumbled upon the winter…

Half of the Whole

My hiking adventures have taken me to the mountains, the coast and lots of little nooks and crannies in-between.     The camera in hand captures a lot of special things that I miss on first blush.    This was caught along the coast of Maryland when visiting a lighthouse. I believe we all have a…

Secret Garden

Eyes – the Soul Connection

Whether we want to recognize it or not, our eyes are the connection to our souls.   We mask our true hearts desire through the expressions on our faces, but our eyes tell the story.   The innocence of a child can be seen in their eyes.   Wonderment and delight, doubt and wary can be see if…

Mountain Top

Beauty of the Brandywine

In Chester County Pennsylvania, there is a beautiful creek called the Brandywine.     There the water flows shallow in areas and deeper in others.   This is surrounded by hiking and biking trails that snake through the county.

With Easter brings new dresses for the little girls, and the boys sport new outfits. Whether hunting for eggs or playing basketball is your priority.   Time moves…

Eyes of a child

Have you ever stepped back and watched a child, full of excitement and glee?     Everything is new to them.   Everything is filled with wonder and excitement.    When we are in the moment as a parent we forget to embrace those times when life is magical. These eyes, maybe blue, green or brown.  But…

2nd Chances

Its not every day we get a second chance.   These two beautiful souls found each other and chose  to take a leap of faith. Love is alive.   Surrounded by family and friends at sunset by the sea, they said “I DO”.   A connection of the heart is something we all strive for and they found…
