Playin’ In Playa Vista

I’m so grateful for Wordless Wednesday because it allows me to share what I find so enthralling practically in my own backyard.  These ponds in Playa Vista are less than 10 minutes from my house.  The peacefulness I feel when I’m there transports me from my office to bliss. Off I go, grabbing my camera…

Filmmaker Cassidy McMillan

Many holidays seem to land on a Monday.  The good news, it provides many people with a three-day weekend, that actually includes me!  I want to take a moment to acknowledge all the men and women that have served our country, including my dad. Thank you. My show on May 30th will be a rebroadcast…

Take A Walk In My Garden

In May of 2005, my soon to be very good friend landscape designer Gina Neusteter and Andres Haro owner of my weekly gardening services and so much more, changed my outdoor living space forever.  On this Wordless Wednesday, I’d like to share how my garden continues to grow.

Bird LA Day

This past Saturday the Los Angeles Chapter of the Audubon Society had events across the city.  It doesn’t take much for me to be inspired to step outside with my camera.  I was lucky, I took a workshop with professional photographer, Dave Collins www.davecollinsimages.com as we took in the sights and sounds of the Playa Del…

Raising Redemption

Have you ever considered writing a book?  And if you did, what would it be about?  Are you a history buff, a romantic, or a sci-fi lover? You would think that someone that enjoys writing a blog could imagine them self kicking it up a notch. I must admit, this is about my limit when…
