Thank you for stopping by! My name is Joy Turingan, author and amateur photographer behind Joyous Serendipity. My husband and I are transplants from the Philippines and call Florida home.  We recently celebrated our thirty-year wedding anniversary and are empty nesters.  Our eldest daughter recently moved to the Upper West Side in Manhattan.  She is a Pharmacist.  Our youngest daughter is a brand new mom to our first grandson, Zeke (Ezekiel).

I studied Marine Science from the University of Puerto Rico.  However, my niche was not underwater but on land as a high school Science teacher.  I taught in a brick and mortar school for 13 years and has been a virtual instructor for the past 4.

I love life.  I love to travel. I love to experience new cuisine, sometimes plant a garden, decorate our home, paint furniture, cook and run.  On top of the list of things I can live without is folding laundry!
