img_20161105_193252.jpgLook where I am! Far, far away from my home in Arizona and now I’m in a totally different part of the country. I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven as I breathe in the clear air in this lush, and forested mountain range of southwest Arkansas, known as the Ouachita mountains. Twenty-five plus years,  hubby and I have made the desert our home, and we surely have loved and appreciated just about every moment of our time spent there. But now we live in good ol’ Arkansas, known as the Natural State, and I’m super excited to share my future adventures and photos of this beautiful part of the country with you. Construction will begin soon on our new house too (so excited!) Stay posted, more to come!


Weekly Photo Challenge: FOCUS


I present my photo of the week “Focus” with this pic. The woman in the foreground (who happens to be my daughter) draws the eye to view her, but then the eye is drawn to the young man in the red hat (my grandson), and ultimately further out where two persons are strolling along the shoreline.

This was taken with my Motorola Droid Maxx phone near Long Beach, WA.

This is one of my absolutely favorite photos, taken this way quite accidentally I might add, and I just love the peaceful scene. I hope you do too!
