About me

Hi, thanks for stopping by!
I began my blog in April 2017 as a way for me to share my observations about the beauty of nature, things that inspire me and touch my heart in music, photography, and literature. I have worn many hats in my lifetime including daughter, mother, teacher, friend, writer, and photographer. My goal here is to make the world a little more beautiful through my photography and writing. If you are following me, thank you!



Laura Roettiger is the author of Aliana Reaches for the Moon, a picture book that draws inspiration from the moon and the curiosity of children. She has enjoyed working with children ever since she was no longer considered a child herself. She was a reading specialist and elementary teacher in Chicago, IL before moving to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where she worked in Environmental Education and is now a mentor for literacy at a STEM school. Her superpower is encouraging curiosity in children and letting them know she believes in them. She has three children of her own whose curiosity and creativity led them into STEM related professions.
