I brought home some amazing roses this week and was inspired by a friend to photograph them. The winter light was hitting on the side, making them glow. I am lucky to have friends that remind me of the important role of beauty in our lives. I think it is part of the Culture of Love. Thank you Amy and Michele!

Testing with a little history

One never knows a lot about one’s forefathers. I know a heck of a lot moreForefathers about my two grandmothers, a bit about one grandfather and almost nothing about the other one. While I’m testing my new WordPress site, I thought I would go ahead and scan and embed a picture my mom shared with me this summer.
