Good morning, sunshine! Well, I don’t always wake up on the right side of the bed (THE BEAST), but when I do … you usually see me bright and fresh with my hair & makeup done nicely and a big smile on my face too. I’m not a beauty expert, but I know that beauty is more than what meets the eye. My beauty topics will include all things beauty, from product reviews and concerns, to how to carry myself & present myself to others. Also, how to love me, unconditionally. I look forward to our beautiful discussions on improving ourselves, inside & out!



    Nothing is more important than family to me, so I will be blogging a lot about my family and our adventures. I look forward to meeting you and your family too and discussing things family related, from serious topics to fun activities. I know we don’t know each other well, yet … but WELCOME TO THE FAMILY! I hope you visit often.


    Through my lens …

    Hello, colorful world! Today I wanted to discuss my passion for photography. Sometimes my photography transfers over into cinematography, obviously … I AM also a filmmaker, but I just wanted to focus a little on the world of stills.  Here I will share some of my favorite shots with you that I have taken over the years. I am still growing and learning the technical side of things, but my creative side is always exploring and taking risks. We live and learn and sometimes amazing things come to life when we do this. Most of these images were taken with a Canon T3i and a few with the Canon 5D Mark ii. The macros shots were actually done with a 50mm lens held backwards as I have yet to purchase a nice macros lens. Just goes to show you what you can do without having all the equipment you really need or shall I say … WANT!

    Now, in the case I have an amazing shot from my cell phone camera, I will be sharing that as well in future blog shares. I plan to continue sharing these captures with you on my photographic journey … “Through My Lens.” I hope you enjoy them!
