Photo Friday - Light and Fun Apps

#Leaves with #sunlight shining through. #springnaturehunt
Along with my travel blogging, I am always looking for ways to practice my photography.  This past week or so I have been obsessed with light, light rays, sun's rays, etc.  I find it fascinating how the light shines through things and the way it makes things glow and shine.

One of the things that I absolutely LOVE to do whenever I go to a beach is collect seashells.

Tri-State Travel - A Quick Peek at Decorah Iowa

On the last weekend of National Parks Week I took a quick, local road trip to Effigy Mounds National Monument all by myself to do a little hiking.  My husband was out in the fields, well supposed to be, he ended up getting rained out :( and my son was at a Boy Scout thing, so I was on my own.  I had planned on heading south to Missouri but when I saw the weather forecast I made a quick shift in plans and headed north.

Yeah I know I'm that kind of travel dork haha! This is me AFTER my 3 mile hike

Wanderlust Wednesday - May Day Garden Park

I can't believe that it is May already!  I am so ready for spring to get here.  We have been crazy hot the last few days and now we are going to get cold again for a few days before getting back to where we should be this time of year.  I wanted to bring in some flowers for this first day of May so I went back a couple of years to when my family and I had gone to Cantigny Park.  This is a park that is outside of Chicago in the southwest suburbs in a town called Wheaton.  It has beautiful gardens and flowers and so much more!
This is the tulip garden, but it also has a rose garden, museums, golf, parks,and play areas for kids.
