"Rooted in Iowa, Traveling the World," has been our family's theme for over 25 years.  My husband gave me a 35mm camera for a college graduation gift many years ago, and he's had plenty of moments of regret as I embraced my camera as my constant companion, and chronicled our lives, our travels, the friends we have made, and the people we met. 

My web site is for you, the viewers of my photos.  Embrace the moments and the wonders of the world that we have experienced.  Perhaps some of these images will root in your heart as they have done in mine.  Come back often as I build my site, share new memories and treasure the old.  Eventually my images will be for sale for your walls, notecards, calendars, coffee mugs and other prominent places.
