My new addition {Pet}

Yes in deed I have a new family member! Everyone meet my baby girl “Roo”. Her mother is an English Bulldog and father is Chihuahua. It was very unexpected said the owners. I’ll add out story a bit later.

10 Firework Photography Suggestions {Tips}

I’ve always wanted to photograph fireworks and capture that special moment as they explode in front of me.  I was amazed how easy it was. I think it’s even easier with a digital camera as you can get immediate feedback as to whether the shots you’ve taken are good or not and then make adjustments.

It’s been three months…

…it’s been three months since my Grandmother passed. I find my heart so empty.  My Great Aunt (grandma’s oldest sister) and I went to her graveside yesterday to pay her a visit. It was my Grandparents Wedding Anniversary yesterday. Happy 61st Anniversary Grandparents!

Next Destination {Travel}

As I plan my travels to Croatia, my mind wonders of distant lands. The doors are open and my mind soars. I wonder what could be planned or explored. What is reasonable and what is not. I wish I could pack it up.
