Many Paths

WordPress Challenge- Path

I made a collage of some of the paths I have taken over this past year. A path can be like an old friend or a new adventure not knowing what you will find at each turn.

I also thought about the paths we take in life like moving, the loss of a parent, trying a new career. These journeys make you realize how important your relationships are in life. You may be walking through it alone at times, but to share it with a friend or family member somehow makes it a little less intimidating or more exciting depending on the path you’re taking.

Wishing you many paths to explore this year! “Happy Trails”



Heavy Clouds

Photo Friday Theme: Clouds

This shot was taken last winter on Hollywood Beach, Florida on a chilly morning that brought intense hues to the sky and sea.

Not pleasant as beach days go but the ocean calls and I must go!

It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

T H E     C H R I S T M A S    T R E E

It’s the one thing that has been a part of every Christmas since I can remember.  Even if we are traveling for the holidays, the smell of pine and the beautiful lights brings the Christmas season into our home.

I love the family trip to pick out the tree, choosing the perfect one in our eyes each year. Although, putting the tree in the stand at home is always frustrating!

Other than that moment, our family tree is a treasure. It’s a place for family photos, watching our kids open gifts and a peaceful place to reflect… to be grateful.

Sunset Watch


Photo Friday Theme- black and white

This photo of my daughter was taken watching the sunset on the shore of Lake Champlain in Burlington.

This was a girl’s trip for us where we visited the camp she works at in her summers and then enjoyed our time!



Flora from Maui

Theme: Saturation

The gorgeous flora on the island of Maui was so saturated with tropical color… I was quite taken with it all. 

It’s even lovelier when you do not have to enhance or color correct your photo as it was as colorful in photo as it was in person.
