…at least for our family it is. My kids go back to school next week, so today marked the unofficial last day of summer. It hardly felt like summer arrived and now it’s gone. This summer seemed more like a movie trailer rather than the full length feature–it was fun, but just flashed […]
"…and show the world all the love in your heart." Carole King Good Morning! This is My Best Shot for the week.
I'm going to take a week break from blogging to get this summer jump-started.

I’m so glad I didn’t let this one slip by…We almost didn’t go to the St. Regis Monarch Beach on Saturday Night to participate in their Butterfly Release ritual. The weather has been gloomy and we were all grousing around all day Saturday, not feeling up to being “amazed” or anything like that. Sometimes making […]
“Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.” Ansel Adams Creating an Orange County Daily Photo Blog has been on my mind for a while. I used to post a daily photo right here on Alive in Wonderland, but it became too difficult to keep […]
