I am an amateur photographer, a lover of nature, a poet, writer, and lover of life – all life!

I am a graduate of Cape Breton University where I earned a Bachelor degree. I also hold a diploma from the College of the North Atlantic in Journalism. In addition I successfully completed the Diploma in Ministry Program at St. Francis Xavier University.


I am currently employed at our local library in a part-time position. I am also a free lance writer. My favorite topics include human interest stories, inspirational stories, stories about life challenges, faith and spirituality, and much more.

Life Partner

My husband is a diabetic with heart disease and kidney disease, which features often in my blog posts. We have survived wildfires, flooding and most recently we are dealing with the pandemic known as Covid-19. We have been through many adventures together, which have taught me a lot. I share insights of lessons learned over the years on my blog.

Light of My life: My Fur Baby:

Since my children are now all grown and gone my kitty has become the focus of much of my attention. You will find stories about my fur baby,Callie, a Ragdoll cat, who has lived with me for seven years at time of writing. I also post photographs of her as well.

Where I’ve been

I am Canadian. I lived in Newfoundland through my formative years after which I spent my teens and twenties in Ontario where I met my husband. In 2014 I moved to Alberta. My blog features photographs taken in these three provinces as well as snippets of the life I’ve lived in each of these beautiful regions of our country.
