I am a mother of five, grandmother of 8, and wife of a US Marine.  I haved lived in all four corners of the US, and  had a successful career in real estate.   I am now moving into retirement at a slow pace.  To fill in my extra time and use up my energy since becoming an “empty nester” I decided to write this blog.  Because I love the sunshine getting out into the world sharing photos seemed ideal.  I hope to inspire some of you and if along the way I brighten someones day, then it’s mission accomplished.
