Back to WordPress!

ImageOh, how I’ve missed the WordPress community! Over the last few months, I have explored various social media and blogging platforms.

So glad to be back 🙂

My images are featured in this wonderful post. Check it out!

This wonderful post includes a few of my photos and paintings. Check it out!

Colors exploding all around me, shattering the senses—sight, smell, and sound…

My beautiful family and I went for a quick outing at a local park last weekend. Bear Creek Park has a lot to offer in terms of seasonal gardens. I’ve never actually seen poppies budding before and I thought these were exceptionally beautiful.
