My name is Dena Joan (Botbyl) DelloBuono. I was born on May the fifth, nineteen eighty-four. You will most often find me behind a camera lens, photographing the world around me. I attempt to capture the beauty + the terror inside of it all. I have an absolute weakness for mason jars + fresh flowers. I live on a little mountain in northern New Jersey with my husband and our darling dog, Bella.

History of this Site
In July of 2009, I created this site to share my story and to teach other people how to follow the path from darkness to light. I was unhealthy, overweight, and suffered from severe anxiety and depression from the time I was fifteen until my early/mid-twenties. I tried various medications and therapies without success. Then, that all changed when I discovered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). With the tools that CBT gave me, I overcame my depression and anxiety, I lost seventy pounds, and I began to change my life.
My first ebook Beat Anxiety, Overcome Depression: The Journey from Darkness to Light is a comprehensive account of my journey. It is available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
Today, I do not often write about my journey and my past. Instead, I focus on the beautiful life that I have been blessed with and I count my one million blessings.
