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 →

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 →

I had come across this tutorial for coloring Easter eggs using flowers and onion skins, so we decided to try it out! http://ulicam.blogspot.com/2012/04/easter-tutorial-how-to-color-eggs-with.html We were in Pittsburgh for Easter, and we didn’t have a lot of flower options, but we found forsythia, hyacinth, and onions. Though really we could have done with more onions, but we used what we had. … Continue Reading →

What I’ve been up to – January/February, part 2

I had so many pics I haven’t had time to post in the last couple of months I had to break it up. We start with photos of a tasting my friends and I did at the Mandalay Restaurant in DC.

Originally I only upgraded so I could give my phone to Doug who really needs one but we were stupid and forgot that we have separate carriers and so I can’t just give him my … Continue Reading →


What I’ve been up to (November/December)

So here’s a catch up of other things I’ve been up to in November. We kept our Halloween skeletons up (though now one has a Santa hat) – and they’ve been fun to pose in different ways. Our drive to Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving was pretty – there’d been an ice storm so all the trees were iced over.
