Documenting is important to me. I think it’s because I want to make sure that in the future my boys might have answers to any questions they might have. Photos are my favorite way to document so I rarely “edit” them. Scrapbooking lets me combine these photos with journaling hopefully giving more insite to things.


I seem to do best when I am busy. Don’t get me wrong, I love it when Gary asks, “What are you doing today?” and I can answer with a smile, “Nothing I don’t have to.” But, there is nothing worse for me than being at home with nothing to do for more than that one day. If I complained about busy weeks in the past, I’d like to take that all back now, please.


Travel is one of my most favorite things in the world. If I had unlimited funds (and the train system of Europe) I don’t think I would ever be idle. I LOVE seeing new places. I love the touristy spots as much as the “off the beaten path” places. I love road trips that go from one place to the next and if there is no time limit then all the better.


Technology is moving at such a fast pace that I worry about things like job availability and social skils for kids these days. I enjoy my computer and ipod and wish I had an iphone, but there are things that will never be the same because of it, too, like privacy issues. There is always bad with the good and visa versa.


My camera is my right arm. It has broadened my sense of sight in so many ways. I see things I never saw before; in nature, in people, in simple objects. Color and light have taken on a whole new meaning. My camera connects me to people, connects me to nature, connects me to art.
