Blowing Rock, NC

Last summer, my parents and I went to Blowing Rock, NC. It was so incredibly beautiful – a photographer’s paradise. I always feel bad for anyone who tags along with me when I have my camera. I really


With the Polar Vortex coming and going I seriously long to go back to the beach. Over New Year’s Adam and I were very fortunate to go to Cancun, we traveled with his parents and had an amazing

A Walk in the Park: Jones Point Park

So, I am super sad to say that it has been almost two weeks since I blogged something on here and I feel super guilty about it. Sowwyyyy :'( The cool thing is that I am excited to show you some

We Went to England! Day 6: A Stroll Around London (Shopping Style)

We Went to England! Day 3 Part 2: Emily’s Wedding

2012: You’ve been soooo good to me! Holla! A year in review :D

The “year in review” post didn’t even come onto my radar until I started seeing a few “end of year” posts pop up on my Google Reader. I debated… meh I don’t

We Went to England! Day 3, Part 1: Emily’s Wedding

I had to divide this post in half because there were so many great photos to chose from on this day and I didn’t want to skip on any of the great details. Emily is a really good friend of

We Went to England! Day 2: 1st Night in Appledore

When we first pulled up into Appledore we felt like we had just arrived in a scene from the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movie (where the Pearl was on sand in Davy Jone’s Locker). There were

We Went to England! Day 1: Stonehenge :)

I cannot begin to tell you how magical our trip to England was. We were blessed to take 9 days of vacation in this incredible country. Planning the trip was so surreal because it had not sunk in til

I am not “officially” back until tomorrow but since we’ve been up since 4:30am I decided to catch up on some stuff and work on a little preview blog of our trip. Adam and I just got

TGIF: Musical Madness! See you on September 10th!

I know that just about every place has amazing sunsets but where I live in Northern Virginia, you can barely see them. One of the things that I love about my parents’ home down here is that

Only me…in Washington D.C.

This would only happen to me on the ONE day I choose to go into Washington D.C… don’t worry though its not a bad thing Ps… I broke my most important rule of blogging… the

Midnight in Washington D.C.

What was I doing in Washington D.C. at midnight??? … good question… Hopefully I can share the reason why soon! On another note… I like visiting the monuments in Washington D.C.

Friends and Family

Que linda amistad (What a beautiful friendship).  Gigi and I have known each other since we were about her daughter’s age (around 3). We met at L.E.A.P School in Caracas, Venezuela and would

Another Beautiful Sunset

We Went to Mexico! Day 5: A Lovely Evening Walk to Bucerias

We had made plans to visit Vista Grill for dinner, but a wave of low clouds set in. I have never been to Vista Grill, but from what Adam’s parents tell me it is at a high elevation with a

We Went to Mexico! Day 3: A Walk on the Beach and a Stroll Around Town

I am not really into going to a gym or into the concept of “exercising” and much less on vacation. It’s like a big no-no to me but my husband and his parents use the gym and

We Went to Mexico! Day 2: Chillin’ at the Hotel
