About Me

My photo
I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!

Beautiful Christmas Bokeh...

I have only had my Digital SLR camera for less than two years, so I am very much a novice, but I have a passion for taking photographs, and try at least 4-5 times a week to go some place new and take pictures.  Always reading about new information, trying new techniques, buying new attachments, lenses, etc., and looking for those unique shots.  Living in Florida has given me a great backdrop for some spectacular photographs.  One of my favorite are those with  Bokeh in them, such as nature shots with the sunlight coming through palms trees, tropicals or around the beaches can produces some beautiful Bokeh in various colors.  Well, now that the holidays are upon us, it is the time to take photos of all the great Christmas lights, and decoration out and try to capture some wonderful Bokeh in each photo.  I just think it adds that special warmth and sparkle to our holiday photographs.  Below are some that I thought were really nice that I got from Flickr.  I just can't wait to get my tree and all the rest of my decorations up this weekend, so I can begin taking photos and see what I can capture this year.
