Happy day!

Hello!  I'm so excited to introduce you to my new little home on the web.  I wanted something cheery-ier, more joyful.  And turquoise.  And bright orange, too.  When I see these pages, I feel a surge of happiness coursing through my veins as I remember the perfectly clear California beach day when I took the above photo, when seagulls danced over my head and waves crashed along Manhattan Beach.  It was the perfect beach day, one of my most favorite-ist simple things.

I hope this site brings you further into my world of appreciating the simple, beautiful things in life - those found in nature, relationships, good, pure food, and everyday moments.

Some improvements...

  • My blog and website are now one!   I'm no professional photographer or anything...just a girl with a camera who likes to capture life. Most photos were taken with my good 'ole Sony Cybershot that's accompanied me to India, Africa, Colorado, Maine, California, and many places in between.  With my art, I like to mainly use paper scraps and watercolor.  I hope you enjoy.
  • For those of you who would like to continue to follow my pregnancy, I put all the belly pics on one page instead of in individual posts.  
  • Center column - I've always wanted a 3 column blog design, and I like how the content is nestled nicely between the two side columns down the center of the page.  I guess the left-brained part of me finds much satistfaction in the symmetry.

I'd love to know what you think!  Is there anything else you'd like to see here?
