Look at the Stars – Photostory Friday/GMYBS

Susan Niebur memorial

This has been a rough week. First, Susan Niebur, my friend and fellow DC-area blogger died on Monday. Her passing was not a surprise. She has been valiantly fighting cancer for the last 5 years and had not been doing well of late. I’ve found that funerals are emotionally taxing, but they are cleansing as […]

Miracle – Photostory Friday/Give Me Your Best Shot


Note: These pictures are just cool shots I took at the park this week. AJ grabbed my hand and pulled me over to a branch that had some pretty cool “carvings” on it. I told him they weren’t carvings, but we did have fun contemplating what they could be (like alien markings!). But that is […]

Oh, It’s Winter? {Photostory Friday/Give Me Your Best Shot}


This winter has been odd, to say the least. We’ve had snow three times so far, and none has lasted longer than a day and a half. So I didn’t complain about this week’s snow quite as much as I normally would in January. This week, our snow storm brought out one of my favorite […]

Fish Eyes – Photostory Friday/Give Me Your Best Shot

Believe it or not, I really did take pictures with my real camera this week (quite a few of them, in fact). I believe that most of those pictures were of food, because suddenly my oldest daughter and I have become Pinterest fanatics and can’t wait to recreate some new Pinterest recipe or creation each […]

Don’t Get Mad. Just Blog About It


Alternately titled… “How to make homemade notebook paper” Today was an odd day. I decided to force myself to take a nap (I was significantly sleep-deprived after a really late night. Long story). So I slept til after lunch, ate a late meal, and then took a shower. I basically had time to get ready […]

Beginning a Project 365 – Photostory Friday & Give Me Your Best Shot

Project 365 Week1

It’s a new year, I just got a new Android Smartphone with a cool camera and fun photo apps, and I have been hearing a ton of buzz about Project 365. I tried completing a Project 365 a few years ago and only made it a couple months. But that was before smart phones. My […]

Christmas in Florida – Photostory Friday

Christmas on the beach in Florida

We just rolled in to Maryland earlier today, and BOY is the temperature difference between here and Florida drastic. In fact, less than an hour after arriving back home, snow started falling. I think we were all ready to turn back around to enjoy a few more days of Florida temperatures and sun. I’ve hardly […]

Photostory Friday From the Beach

Florida beach house

Merry Christmas from the warm beaches of Florida! We survived our 16 hour drive (which normally takes us 17 hours…) and have already enjoyed the 80 degree weather and the white sand in our toes. I can already feel myself decompressing. Hosted by Cecily and Lolli To play Give Me Your Best Photo Story Friday, […]

Georgetown Cupcakes with a Friend – PSF

Lolli and Kristi

What do two blogging friends do when they meet for the first time? Photo by Kristi (from her iPhone!) They find a place to eat, of course! And what do those two bloggers do when they order a dozen famously gourmet cupcakes? Well, if they are photographers, they take pictures of those cupcakes for 20 […]

Central Park on Sunday Morning – Photostory Friday

walk in central park

I had about an hour to myself on Sunday morning in New York City last weekend. The weather was uncommonly clear and mild for December, and I took full advantage. The hour that I spent in Central Park was in extreme contrast to the hustle and bustle and excitement of the rest of the weekend. […]
