So. California

Welcome Cup of Tea

 My First Post, A Little Background Info, Meet Some of the Fam and Thank You for Stopping By!


Today I thought I would start the blog off with a personal post by sharing a little bit about myself.

I was born and raised in Southern California. I got my first camera when I was 9 yrs old, a brand new Brownie and I adored that camera. It sparked my life long affair with photography.

I have really never been without a camera since! Well that is not exactly true...there was this one time when I was taking pictures, with my brand new Minolta, of my new husband's awesome water skiing maneuvers and the houseboat hit a wake and ... well you know what came next. My new Minolta and our vacation photos are still lying somewhere at the bottom of Lake Powell.

   Growing up in California meant summers spent at the beach and snow on the mountains above the small city we lived in. Streets were safe to play on, we all knew our neighbors and everyone looked out for one another. Maybe that will come back someday.

   I have gotten better at taking pictures and holding on to my camera. Close up, candid and product photography is my passion. I really do enjoy being a photographer. It is one of my great joys in life.  I will be sharing that joy with you on the blog because most of the photos showcased will be my own unless otherwise noted.

Growing up summers in our house were all about the sun, fun and the ocean. We loved it and continued that with our kids, who didn't like it and our grandchildren who absolutely loved it.

We got to spend a year in Oregon with our grandchildren. It was one of our greatest adventures!

What does all this have to do with a home and design blog?

I am so glad you asked? 

My life experiences and special moments in time make me who I am ... good or bad. They fuel the soul and propel us to where we are supposed to be, when we are supposed to be there.
