About me

I am blessed beyond belief!

I am a sober, retired wife, momma, sister, auntie, g’ma who is Happy, Healthy, and In Love with my life, and with my amazing husband.

Taking photos is my passion, staying sober is my journey, living an authentic life is my destination.

I have been a WordPress blogger since August, 2011, and I am blown away at the talent and support I have received from my fellow bloggers.  I was taking photos with a point and shoot Olympus for years and purchased my Canon Eos and continue to enjoy discovering new things I can do.

I had two friends who were bloggers and photographers and I read their blogs and coveted my own.  After my 66th birthday  I picked up my camera and started my blog on WordPress!  I haven’t look back since.

You, my friends, have been so kind.  I am reading your blogs and learning how to be a better photographer, but I have a lot to learn.  Some of you have incredible talent and I get such joy from your posts!  So thank you from a newbie who has great desires to learn more, pay attention more and share more.

I am incredibly grateful for your support!!!

So I continue to seek… with you by my side, and I hope to continue to make new friends along the way as I seek, see, and share…

Join me as I seek, won’t you?

  1. Hey there, stumbled onto your blog through charlie country boy. Its a nice change from the normal political circles I run in. They can be so negative, me included! Thank you for sharing about recovery. (clean almost 5 years) …keep coming back!
    much love

  2. Indeed, 13 years, 4 months and 16 days, one day at a time πŸ™‚ There are quite a few BB quotes throughout my blog, especially my tongue in cheek first post entitled ‘Wilson the dog of my understanding’

    Looking forward to getting to know you xx


    1. Oh yay!!!! I love meeting amazing friends on this blog… My sobriety date is May 1, 1983… coming up on 30 next year, my hubby is going to be 25 next year. We met on AA campus. Life is great and that is why I am Happy, Healthy and In Love. Have a super day my new friend!


  3. Hi, Patricia! Thanks for visiting my blog and ‘reblogging’ it (I haven’t use that feature yet so I’m not exactly sure how it works). I just figured, it probably means good, haha! I can totally relate with the whole photography thing. And I’m still figuring out how to use all the functions that my digital slr has. It’s been over a year and I haven’t master it yet, haha! Good thing I also have a point and shoot digi cam :), easy to carry as well.
    And hey, amazing family photos you have here!
