Hey y'all! This weekend, my husband and I visited Monocacy Battlefield to see their artillery demonstrations! This was a great way to learn more about the way battles were fought during the Civil War as well as seeing them in action! When I was a kid living in my home state of Missouri, I rode … Continue reading Adventure | Artillery Weekend at Monocacy Battlefield
Hey y'all! So, as I have said previously, my goal here is to go on an "adventure" every month. This adventure consists of typically one general location, and I'll highlight some of my favorite areas, architecture, nature, landscapes, etc. etc. Since I'm new to this area, I see this adventure as an opportunity to not … Continue reading Adventure | Frederick

This was our first fourth here in Maryland, and while we could have gone down to the National Mall, or Mount Vernon, or Annapolis, or just face it, pretty much anywhere, we chose to stay close to home and take in the … Continue reading A Frederick Fourth
I need to make a confession. I have never visited Washington, D.C. Never. I have never lived somewhere where taking a day trip there was a remote possibility. My husband has been before, and we are both big history buffs with an appreciation for our own country's story. So, now living in Maryland, an hour … Continue reading A Day in D.C.
Hello everyone! The move is complete! It was a long, daunting, and exhausting process, but it's over and we are all safely reunited in our new home in Maryland.

Living in the Pacific Northwest gives many an opportunity to see sights they wouldn't normally see anywhere else. I'm from Missouri, a state known for being the "Show Me" state, where the tallest point is what I see as a hill called Taum Sauk Mountain. My husband, who grew up the son of a Coastie, … Continue reading Evanescent | Mount St. Helens
Mother's Day is just around the corner! Get in the picture, ladies! "Whoa, what are you talking about?" I'm talking about all of the times you take photos of your kids, whether with your phone or DSLR.
