Welcome to Blueberry Street. It’s a place to stop and smell the roses. A place to relax and find inspiration from nature.  Scroll down to “Categories” to find previous posts.  In my blog I am seeing the world through four lenses.

Campfire Tales shares stories about camping in Florida State Parks and my miscellaneous experiences hiking in National parks.

My Big Backyard tells about living in Orlando, Florida, with my husband, Herb and our beagle, Buddy.

Notable People recognizes people who have shaped my life, including my experiences teaching third grade at Dover Shores Elementary.

Poetry includes many of my original works, and the stories behind them.

Many readers appreciate my positive outlook on life seasoned with my own unique style of writing. (So far, the only time I ventured near politics was when I nominated my pet beagle for president during the 2016 election.) The central theme of my blog is “fostering creativity in everyday life.” I’ve learned there are stories all around me, whether I’m shopping at my neighborhood grocery, or chatting with a park ranger at a campground. I want to inspire others to appreciate the beauty of the world around us, and value simple moments in their daily routines.
