Hello! For those that had MLK day off, hope you enjoyed it. We enjoyed some fun, albeit chilly, family time outside – with Violet at Sky Meadows State Park and then had a delicious lunch at one of our favorites outside the beltway, The Front Porch, in The Plains.[Read more…]
Happy Tuesday! Today I’m sharing some snapshots from Sicily (and Rome).[Read more…]
Happy Tuesday ya’ll! Hope you are having a great week so far. This Tuesday Tidbits will be the last of 2019 for me. My clan and I head to Sicily this Friday so I’ll be taking the rest of December to hang out with my family and eat all the pasta and drink all the wine I can. 🙂 Looking forward to continuing this fun series in the new year![Read more…]
On Sunday night our little family + Ava’s friend Addie and her parents, Kathryn and Matt, checked out Enchant Christmas at Nationals Park. The main attraction at Enchant is The Light Maze. Visitors are set out on a mission to find all of Santa’s reindeer amidst glittering and twinkling lights, sculptures, and more. There is also a Christmas market on the upper level of the baseball stadium, ice-skating, a Kids Zone, a Ms. Claus and Santa Claus dedicated visiting area, and plenty of food and beverage options.[Read more…]

Happy Hump Day ya’ll!
I don’t know about you, but I’m struggling a little today. Luke woke up at 1:00am (very unusual for him) and wouldn’t go back down until 2:30am. Then he was up for the day at 5:30am. Lots of coffee my friends, lots of coffee today.
This past Saturday my family and I did something that I’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t because Christmas is MY HOLIDAY and I always go big or go home for the holidays (annual big party, real Christmas tree, presents galore, baking, Secret Santas, you name it), but this year we hosted a Friendsgiving gathering.[Read more…]
