Photo Dump, Part One

Hello, Beautiful Souls,

A few people recently reached out to me and told me they missed my photos. I realized I had not done a Wordless Wednesday post since I finished my goal to take a daily photo for a year.

That was back in 2019, on my 35th birthday. Since then, I have taken many photos, primarily sunsets; some things never change! So, I thought I’d share them. Now that I know so many of you enjoy looking at them, I will start sharing these more often.

I appreciate those of you who have sent emails or sent messages through Facebook or Instagram messenger to check on me.

Enjoy the photos!


Meatballs and spaghetti. My friend, Austin, tweeted about the classic dish a little over a week ago, and it made me crave it. So, I made Italian sausage meatballs from scratch and traditional marina and served them over whole wheat spaghetti noodles. I will forever refer to this meal as meatballs and spaghetti now!

By the way, Austin is a phenomenal writer. If you haven’t checked out his blog, I highly recommend it. He writes a serial every Sunday about best friends, and he has another serial called “The Vanishing Corpse,” They are my favorite stories.

I spent a week with my cousin last month, and whenever I stay an extended length of time with friends and family members, I like to show my appreciation by cooking them a meal or two. Shepherds pie is a dish I often get requests for.

Random Things

Last year, I received this beautiful pie plate as a birthday gift, and something about the sun shining upon it caught my eye.

I love Funko Pops, and I love Die Hard! I have a shelf of villains, and I just had to add Hans Gruber to my collection. Yippie-ki-yay!

Pretty light patterns that I couldn’t ignore.

The creepy house next door often inspires me to write horror stories.


I don’t remember why I was smiling, but I looked good with a smile, whatever it was.

I took this photo last year after I purchased a new Orioles hat, which I needed.

And this one I took on opening day this year. I sure do love my boys in black and orange!

I was proud of myself for working out after I spent a few days on the couch with a pulled back muscle.

My hair is now hip length and has much more silver than it used to.

A walk at sunset to clear my mind and burn some calories.

I finally got new spectacles!

Just a gal who enjoys playing with makeup.

Have I mentioned how much I love sunsets?


I wake up early to get a yoga session and a run in before work. I don’t enjoy driving in the fog, but running in it isn’t so bad.

The path I walk around the cemetery to take my sunset photos.

I call this one “Perfect Timing.”

Sideling Hill. I-68 runs between two hills, and a rest stop is located on each side. Weirdly, a rest stop holds so many fond memories for me, but it was a popular stop when I was in marching band, and I often stopped here with family and friends on our way to Ocean City. It offers beautiful scenic views. There’s an overhead walking bridge that provides a birds-eye view, and a tree on top of one of the hills has my initials carved in it, along with the rest of my marching band family.

And the most beautiful photos of all:


I really enjoy taking photos. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share them with you!

Love & life lessons,
