Hi, my name is Deanna and I have been married for 50+ years to my husband, Gary who is currently living in a Nursing Care Facility after suffering from Alzheimer's for over 15 years. I am a mother of two children, Lisa who lives about 45 miles west of me and a son, Lane who lives about 2,000 miles west of me. As to where I live, in a western suburb of Chicago after growing up in Texas and living in Kentucky for the 1st 10 years of married life. Lisa and Lane are both married and Lisa has given me my 3 grandchildren, all of whom are almost grown themselves. Brandon who is now married to Hilary and is the father of my first great grandchild Matilda Mae, Bailey who has graduated from college and is now beginning her life in the working world, and Brie who is in her senior year of college. Time moves very swiftly and I know that there is much more of my life behind me than in front of me and because of that I try and embrace each and everyday.
I began my photography journey as a creative outlet when my husband's Alzheimer's was beginning to deterioate. I needed to find something that I could do while still being with him. I bought myself my first Nikon almost 5 years ago and immediately signed up for an on-line class on photography and how to use my camera. This led to my blog which is almost 4 years running, and in turn has led me to so many new wonderful friends thru this grand world of photography and blogging.
I have enjoyed this new found passion of photography and writing and cherish your visits and lovely comments. You keep me on this journey thru your kind comments and good wishes. Thank you for visiting, I so appreciate you dropping by my corner of the world.
