We got back from Alex & Holly’s wedding in time to go to the fireworks in Laurel with friends. We missed the DC fireworks, but the Laurel ones are always nice – and they went on for like 40 minutes! Great show!

So Alex and Holly got married in NY on the 4th of July – our whole crew from work went up for the event and it was a really fun time.

We went to a friend’s wedding (Alex, my amusing, goofy work friend, whom you have pictures of here) up in NY. Actually the wedding ended up being not that far from where I grew up – probably 20 minutes away! We had some time to kill before the wedding, and our other friends had already gone to Storm King (a … Continue Reading →

The beach was about as perfect as it has ever been this year. I love New Smyrna Beach – it is definitely is one of my happy places. It wasn’t great weather the day we got there, but was still beautiful. And then the rest of the week was gorgeous. The ocean was really blue, which the Atlantic generally isn’t, … Continue Reading →

Since we still had annual passes, so we spent an evening at Disney on the front end of our trip to the beach. I didn’t catch this breathing fire, but it was really cool! We did get on the 7 Dwarfs Mine Car ride, which was fun, but a sort of kiddy coaster. This is the dwarf’s house: We had … Continue Reading →

The night before my Florida vacation, we got to see one of my fav bands, First Aid Kit at the 9:30 Club in DC. They’re Swedish sisters and so talented. We were very close to the front, so we had a nice view. Emmylou is one of my fav songs ever: Here are some pics from the show. Selfie! They … Continue Reading →

I was invited to go flying with Amber again for breakfast over in Cambridge, MD. My friend Beth was in town and Amber had room for us both, so we said yes! It was a gorgeous day for flying and the Chesapeake is gorgeous from above. Breakfast was surprisingly amazing – the best grits I think I’ve ever had! And … Continue Reading →

The event was really fun and went very smoothly. We had a bunch of project folks, Amber, Ray, and Eric give an overview of the mission: Followed … Continue Reading →
