These photos were taken in my room…’cause that’s where I am today-doing some studying, writing, and obviously photography, editing, and blogging.

This time of year is when my room suddenly becomes my happy place. The lighting is brighter and cleaner, I have my spring and summer decor out, and somehow it all comes together into my own special haven.


spring day

Sunshine fades,
Then comes again.
Birds chirp a serenade,
Glad there is no rain.

I feel a wistfulness,
Rising in my soul.
Something akin to sadness,
Makes my heart feel full.

Yes, I love the sun,
Yes, I love the birds.
But something is undone,
Not described with words.

for a year this poem has sat, awaiting the day when i would finally publish it

Spring Flowers

Probably my favorite photo subjects are flowers.

Yesterday it was raining, and today it’s raining, but that’s off the subject. Anyway, during a break in the drizzle, I went out on our front porch and took a few pictures of a little bunch of flowers.

These are the ones that turned out the best.


Totally yay for spring flowers, right?! 😀

Spring Fever

Anyone have spring fever? I do, even if it was 75° or so yesterday. 🙂

Here are some pictures I took last June. As some of us are still in the middle of winter, why not enjoy some nice flowers? After all, who doesn’t love roses?

And…as a new blogger I definitely would love it if you like my post, or better yet, followed my blog! 🙂
