What’s in a Boots?

Last July 4, we went to Meredith College for Parent’s Day at the Governor’s School that my daughter is participating in. We were invited to attend one of her class (Memoir) and to say that I fell in love was an understatement! There, we were asked to write a story from suggested topics like: Weird…

Not All That Glitters Is Gold

I am not a fan of expensive jewelries or anything that glitters. Maybe because….I don’t like attention. I ‘d rather blend in with the crowd, not stood out or be loud or demand attention. I like everything plain and simple. Such is my life… Who wants all the glitters if it’s not real gold? We…

Born For A Purpose

Dear me, It’s Sunday but I opted to stay home today due to not feeling well. I thought I’d write you a letter. Who would have thought that you, the shy-introverted girl would be living 10,000 miles away from home?…… Excerpt from A Letter to my Younger Self; Finding God in the Ordinary Embracing a…

The Cleaning Blogger

I think I am not afraid of the truth, I am more afraid of what the truth might bring… I don’t know what made me excited to come up with this name, the fact that it suits me perfectly or me having the courage to talk about it. You see, back in 2008, right after…

Living or Existing?

“For some reason, I, all of a sudden, have this unexplained feeling of wanting to travel, live life to the fullest and enjoy life. I am restless…” Sometimes, life gives us unexpected surprises.

My Easy Is Not Your Easy

Can you believe we are just four days away until we begin the new year? New beginnings. Renewed hope. Greater possibilities. Perhaps, a deeper understanding of pains, failures, disappointment and everything that is not easy. A few weeks ago, I read a post about how people compare our pains to theirs or theirs to others….

Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

Be your own kind of beautiful… When I was younger, I worried a lot about what others thought of me. I got upset easily on their opinions, more so if it’s something that is not true, and yes something that I don’t agree with. It took me a whole forty-eight years to change that outlook…

Seeing Beauty

I guess one of the most challenging things nowadays is having to see beauty in everything. Whether it be in physical form or something that goes beyond what we can see. I am talking about beauty beyond its superficial form. Something that’s more than meets the eye. Something that may not be outwardly visible but…

Of Webs & Dew Drops

Yesterday, while on my walk back to my area of work…I took that few minutes out to enjoy the scenery. I purposely walk slowly and took my time admiring the things that I passed along the way. One of the things that caught my attention is the plant pictured above. It was covered in webs…

Fine as a Pine

You might be wondering why I blog about life experiences, emotions and such on a photography site. Why not write about photography? Believe it or not, I thought about the same thing. I was worried that it may turn off possible clients because…I am being transparent with my life, my thoughts and with my emotions….
