About Michele

These are the basics; the ones you give at a party where you meet someone for the first time:

Raised in Tucson, AZ, left after graduating from University of Arizona. Moved to Fort Collins, with a B.S. degree, $200 in my pocket, a car and expectations that jobs would be handed to me as soon as I arrived in Fort Collins.

Met Steve in 1987 and married in 1990. Lived here and there and settled in Colorado Springs for 23 years.

Raised 2 sons in Colorado Springs and they fledged in 2013.

Daughter to mom who was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in 2013.

Back and forth from Colorado Springs to Tucson to help mom.

Left high tech, IT career in June 2016 with no job, lots of creative energy, passion and ideas.

Completed 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Costa Rica in July of 2016.

That brings us to current – living in Tucson, still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

And then the other stuff, the stuff you talk about once you know my name and the basics:

I’m a dabbler. I used to stress out because I didn’t know what I wanted to be “when I grew up”. I still do and occasionally I don’t.

“Organized” is my favorite word.

And the really juicy stuff is revealed in person, likely over a nice glass of wine or a well made margarita.

 About Steve

Born and raised in Florida but moved to his heart’s home in Colorado as soon as he could. Lived in Fort Collins, Colorado for 12 years, met Michele. Left Colorado for 5 years before returning to Colorado Springs for 23 years.

I am now enjoying living in Tucson and getting to know the Southwest.

Opposite of Michele, I’m not a dabbler I’m a delver. I tend to fixate on one passion at a time. I’ve gone from birding to photography to running to triathlon and am now coming full circle back to birding and photography.

“Organized” is not my favorite word.

Together, we travel, photograph, observe, study and enjoy our lives. This site is a place for us to share snippets of that life. You won’t find just one subject or theme on our site because there isn’t one; what excites us is as varied as the way we spend our days. Do expect to find a little bit about photography, quilting, art, yoga, philosophies of life, birds, having a parent with dementia and more!
