Ordered Elevation

Daily Post theme: order

This is the first thing you see when getting off the elevator at the hotel we were staying at in Tampa. For a math girl like me, I loved the ruler look. It’s the little touches that make me happy.  – Diane

Pretty In Pink

Daily Post theme: evanescent

Spring is in the air. Living in south Florida you don’t get to see the seasons change, but for this fleeting moment, I feel like I can enjoy a sliver of Spring. – Diane


Transient Times

Photo Challenge TransientThere are times of our lives where we travel, intern, work summer jobs and come home. All of these transient experiences give us life experiences that enrich our lives. 

Even if you are experiencing challenges (which I am this summer with a herniated disk in my lower back), you can grow stronger and hopefully wiser! This makes me so grateful that I have my youngest at home this summer to help me out.  

Love her dearly❤️ and so thankful for her being here! 


This is Diesel, Shannons Doberman. Dangerous? Could be. To those who know him well, his nickname is Marmaduke. He is big, sweet and a little goofy and positively terrified of flies!

He could actually lick you to death! Danger!

Daily Post theme: heritage

These are effigy heads that were found among funeral offerings of chieftains in Dominican Republic. I’m sharing them as more of a lost heritage among the locals. I am amazed at the artistry that was created from basic tools compared to today. Unfortunately civilization has erupted and removed so many ancient rituals from their heritage as well as so many others. – Diane


Rooftop Reflections

Daily Post theme: danger

Being a hockey fan I have been to many games, mostly Florida Panthers, but on a trip to Tampa we decided to go to one of their games. I know they are the Tampa Bay Lightning but I had no idea they would use actual lightning in their stadium. The first time it went off (when the team took the ice) I admit it startled me a bit. It seemed so close to us and the noise, that electrical zapping, made it more terrifying. It took me a few times to get used to it but I eventually became fascinated by it and determined to capture a few shots of it. I still think a warning would have been nice. – Diane


Wanderlust Lokal

Theme – Wanderlust

Wanderlust: is a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world

I love to travel and explore new places. I feel like my bucket list grows by the day as I scroll through Instagram.

There are some days that you are doing your “MUST DO” errands like replacing a lost drivers license. On your way, you notice a flash of pink…  local wanderlust! Of course I did my errand first, but stopped at Hurd Park on the way back to explore cherry blossom trees on the either bank of a man made creek…. I felt like Alice in Wonderland! It truly made my day that I found this little treasure. It may not have been the Italian coast but it was wanderlust all the same!

Reluctant Traveling

Daily Post theme: wanderlust

I am a reluctant traveler. If my husband didn’t drag me on vacations, I probably would never go anywhere. I love the destinations once we get there but I am not of fan of the actual traveling…unless it’s in a car. I like my feet on the ground, not on water or air. After seeing many of my co-blogger’s beautiful travel shots, I became jealous enough to give it a try. I put up the shade on the airplane  window and was amazed at the beauty below me. I was so amazed that my fear had vanished. Thank you Kim for inspiring me to try something new and for pushing me outside my comfort zone. – Diane
