I love combining my two passions - photography and travel. Thanks in part to being an Air Force spouse for 21 years (and persistence and lots of saving!), I've been fortunate enough to have visited about 14 countries; living in two of them each for 4 years (Germany & Japan). Originally from Northern Minnesota I now live in North Central Kentucky. This puts me close to 2 of my 7 grandchildren. I also have 1 great grandson up in Minnesota. He'll be the only to speak correctly (with a Minnesotan accent - lol) I look forward to annual trips to the Smoky Mountain National Park to take pictures of the bears and whatever other wildlife I come across. Been employed with the Kentucky Humane Society for the last 14 yrs. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
