One of my first explorations of California was a wonderful trip to Yosemite National Park. Terry and I had just started our beautiful relationship and it was our second trip as a couple. The memories are so special and so is this wonderful park.
When I heard the news that 2 men were climbing El Capitan it brought back memories of how dizzy I felt just looking out at the panoramic view. I had seen the images of beautiful waterfalls and the amazing peaks through National Geographic and postcards, but nothing, nothing could compare to actually seeing it for myself. As I gazed out to vast and ongoing mountain range my brain hardly could process that what I was seeing was real. I almost felt like reaching out to touch the canvas that an amazing artist had painted with this scene but it was real. For the first time in my life I was moved to tears just by what I was seeing.

I am a true romantic; I love old Victorian and dream in technicolor. I hunt treasures with passion; whether it is a collection of old postcards at an auction or a crystal hidden in the sand.
