I am a graphic designer by profession and I love my job,

but photography is my true passion.

cooking is one of the other things I enjoy doing most.

I LOVE reading.

I was born and raised in Europe.

my husband says I'm wise.

I learn every day.

flickr is both a blessing and a curse for me - I learned so much, but sometimes it can take me from other things... trying to find the balance...


I am a wife, a mom, God's growing kid, and truly loving it all.
