When I chose the name for this blog, I wasn’t sure what direction I was going with it. As time went on, I realized I wanted this to mainly be a photography blog, but with other stuff I’m interested in too. Like books and music; movies and art; gardening and decorating. I hope my photos are “pearls”–I love photography.
I also love peonies, lilacs and roses; traveling, good English tea, Kona coffee, Cadbury’s chocolate; New York City, Paris and London; Provence and most things French.
After graduating from college, I studied French in Bretagne, then took a job in Southern Bavaria. A friend and I traveled all around Europe and the Mediterranean for about five months. We made it as far as Syria and Lebanon.
I’m married to the sweetest man on earth, and in addition to my two wonderful sons, I have three charming stepchildren. I also have an adorable and exasperating Maltese named Rocky who’s fifteen, but looks like a puppy. [Update: we lost our sweet Rocky in June 2015. He was nearly 18, so lived a long, happy life, but we miss him terribly.]
In case you’re wondering, the iPhone self-portrait above was created with the PaintMee app.
