I had toyed with the idea after my dear friend DJ (Barrier Island Girl) started hers.
she just happens to live in my part of the world, Pensacola Beach ,Florida!
when I found her , through her beautiful photos of home,
I started commenting on parts of her world that had been my playground since childhood..
back when the island had little to no development
and was still a pristine environment!
she encouraged me to blog,,but I was not yet ready..
She provided me a daily dose of home which I truly needed..
I was newly arrived in Denver.. and knew very few people yet..
she was my lifeline..a very encouraging lifeline!
This particular creation came to be after my former blog locked me out..
being new to Blogland, of course I was devastated!
I lost everything.. my words, my photos..
but most importantly, my contacts..
of course, i knew exactly how to remedy the situation..
Dy/ Dorothy of Counting My Blessings..
My dear friend,mentor and fellow photographer who really introduced me to this world,
came to my rescue. With her cheerful encouragement and expert how-to advice,
we were up and running!
For me it was OJT..(On the Job Training)..learning as I blogged along!
I found everyone to be eager to help with any problems encountered..
or questions asked..I've made so many NEW friends..
many whom I've had the pleasure of meeting in REAL Life!!
and they are just as warm, lovely and gracious in person
as they are at home in their respective blogs..
Altho I do not post DIY projects, or home decorating tips,
or even crafting or cooking ..
I can and do all of those.. and more..
But what I really relish is posting my photos..
of Florida, the beach,my flowers, Denver and Colorado..
and my furbabies..
things I am truly passionate about!
these past two years have been therapy for me..
454 posts...covering everything..
funerals, weddings, illness, triumphs..
and the fun we've shared!

In the meantime..from the archives..
