The Drum Circle

One of my favorite memories in time. The day started off with a surprise picnic. Brandon showed up to my door with a picnic basket and a blanket. The weather was just as perfect as our day! Sounds of the Park I haven’t been to this event since I was in high school. The requirement…

Smithsonian American Art Museum

Renwick Gallery Welcome to the “Smithsonian American Art Museum“.  Man this place was cool! Lots to see and do! We spent about 3 hours or so here and didn’t cover all the art galleries. Every time we thought we had reached the end, we would turn the corner and realized there was that much more…

Meridian Hill Park

Pardon the clarity of the pictures in this blog. They were taken with my old camera. I was proud of them at the time they were taken, but just like anything else, as you progress you look back and feel otherwise…Lol! Welcome to Median Hill Park! This place has a lot of character. I visited…

Fruit Tart Love

If there is nothing else you should know about me, you must understand that I’m a foodie!!! Good food soothes my soul. One of my absolute favorite desserts is a fruit tart. A nice thick crust with filling topped with fruit. So far the ones I’ve tried from Wegman’s are my favorite. They use a thicker…

Cool Breezes of Miami

Another late post! The holiday season was really really full for me this year so I didn’t get a lot of time to blog. We took a trip to Miami where a lot of Brandon’s family lives so this was a great opportunity to meet them. The main event was his Uncle Pop’s 81st birthday…

Snow Days

While I don’t ever look forward to the cold, I enjoy the memories it allows us to create. These pictures are from last winter. ALL IT DID WAS SNOW!!!  After looking out the window of my guest bedroom, we realized it was going to be a long day. So, I put on a pot of…

Happy 2017

Forgive me for the late New Years post. We had a great time welcoming 2017! We attended the 7pm service at our church on New Years Eve where Tye Tribett performed. What better artist to bring in the New Year? His energy spoke for itself and his words were so real and practical. After church…

I SAID YES!!!!!!

Hey there everyone! It’s been quite some time since you have heard from me, but I was too busy getting engaged. This blog post might sound a bit all over the place because I am still on all kinds of clouds so bare with me. Grammatical errors and all! On Christmas Eve I received this…

Christmas in a Lantern

Over the weekend I decided to do a little holiday crafting. My friend Errica sent me a pin from Pinterest not too long ago containing a picture of this fabulous holiday lantern. Ever since I saw it I knew I had to put my own touch on one. The one in the picture was a…

Bundle Up!

Don’t you just love winter crafts!!! I’ve been crocheting since I was ten when my mother taught me. My first piece was a pattern for a baby bib. If I can figure out what we did with it I will post a picture of it.  Here are a few infinity scarves I created modeled by…

New York City

We went to New York on Black Friday but not to shop. We went to celebrate a friends birthday and to tour the great city of New York! We stayed at a luxury hotel in Manhattan called the Lexington . We were treated like royalty from the moment we pulled up. Stanley came to our window and…
