Williamsburg Day 2 (February 2020)

Back to Feb 2020 (the last 5 minutes of good this year) to our Williamsburg trip. I already blogged about our Friday, so on to Saturday! Morning snuggles with Elena.

Williamsburg Day 1 (February 2020)

We didn’t travel really in January, so it was mostly day to day stuff with the kiddo and work. But February was a pretty packed month, which ended up being a really good thing, given everything came screeching to a halt in mid-March. :-/ Colonial Williamsburg was having a fashion event, and Gloria and Mike invited us to share a … Continue Reading →


Cosplay DC Woodlawn House (December)

Cosplay DC Woodlawn House (December)

Back in December, I participated in one of the Cosplay DC events, which was at the Woodlawn Mansion in Virginia.

We listened … Continue Reading →

I wasn’t super pregnant so I was ambulatory if a little slow, and we had a really nice time. Thanks, Gloria, for doing the organizing! We first … Continue Reading →


El Galeon

Doug and I met up for a morning in Alexandria to see El Galeon, a replica 16th century Spanish galleon. It was docked temporarily there, and you could go aboard it and explore. It was pretty cool. There would be 70 to 100 hammocks here below deck: Captain’s quarters:


Mount Vernon

I haven’t been to Mount Vernon since… well, the last time I was there I didn’t have a digital camera. My mom and I went sometime when the gardens were blooming and it was lovely and I always meant to go back. But you know how it is with cool places that are like 40 minutes from home – you … Continue Reading →
