As a girl raised in the country and working on family farms, I loved God's nature and all that it has for us to enjoy. I also loved the "old things" from the past, barns, tractors, cars, trucks and such. I loved doing these photos, they brought back many memories. Now I am sharing them with you.
Several years ago, I fell in love with photography. I started out by taking pictures of weddings and family outings. I discovered that was not enough. There were a whole lot more things to capture with my camera than people. God’s creations were on display all around me. So, I started with birds, flowers, winter scenes, mushrooms, the moon, and the sky.My husband, Stephen, bought me a good digital camera so that I could get even better “shots.” Thanks to him, I really enjoy what I do. Then he suggested that I make a book and fill it with my pictures, so that others could enjoy them.I put together the photos I wanted to “show” in this book. My first “coffee table” picture book.Please take the time to look at each photo and capture the beauty within it.

I have always been a Jersey girl at heart. That is, until I crossed the Delaware with my husband Dan and moved to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. I traded watching birds to watching and learning about the whitetail deer who travel through the woods behind my home. As with the chapters in a book, writing is yet another chapter in my book of life. With a degree in education, I have taught elementary school children and worked for the government interviewing applicants for permanent residence and citizenship in the United States. My love of nature is a part of who I am along with being a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Quotes to Consider
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
