Welcome to The Broadmoor

Colorado Springs I haven’t been everywhere in the world by far, but if I could pick one place to return to it would be The Broadmoor! This was my first 5 star resort. Fresh off the plane the dry air hits you. It was very refreshing compared to Maryland’s hot and hazy humidity. As you walk …

Timing is Everything

OUR STORY Boy meets girl The chemistry is so loud it’s seen by others…but stunted by bad timing. They date for a few months, feelings grow and of course she wants to know where things are going. He realizes…he isn’t ready for what she wants. He didn’t feel like his life fit hers at the …

Lotus and Lily

Aquatic Gardens I stumbled upon this hidden wonder on a weekend looking for something to photograph. I would say the best time to visit is spring if you really want to see all they have to offer in full bloom. According to their website, fall looks nice too! It’s one of the smaller parks I’ve …

City of Seven Hills

Lynchburg, Virginia What a great place to visit! Though I didn’t get to stay  as long as desired, I was able to enjoy the spectacular landscapes, and the nice people. I can’t wait for my next visit to be able to indulge in the history and the culture of this city. Enjoy!       Save

Autumn Falls

Great Falls I’m sad to say I’ve lived in the state of Maryland my entire life and never took the opportunity to visit either side of Great Falls until the past few years. I honestly still can’t figure out which side is my favorite. I like them both for their own uniqueness. I have not had the …

Patuxent Research Refuge

I entered this beautiful place of peace and serenity from the Laurel, MD side where you will find  the North Tract trails. You can learn more about this 12,800 acres of land by going to the links I’ve posted. President Franklin D. Roosevelt established Patuxent Research Refuge as the nation’s first wildlife research station through …

Beauty in the 9th Grade

I had the pleasure of photographing my cousin as she prepared for her 9th grade homecoming. Honestly, it made me feel really old, but while taking the pictures I learned so much about her and youth today. I managed to capture some shots I was proud of! I love black and whites as you can …

Me and My Jewels

A little something I enjoy doing in my spare time. My God Mother taught my mother and I this skill. What better mommy daughter time to spend than to make jewels together. Don’t worry, those contraptions at the end of some of the pieces are to hold the beads on until I finish up…just in …

Our Beautiful State Capital…Annapolis, MD

The Sailing Capital of the United States We got a later start than normal, but the weather was perfect which means I refuse to be cooped up inside. I prefer to be out and about enjoying the day. We decided on Annapolis since it’s been a while that we ventured out that way. Links below….Enjoy! Pussers Caribbean …

Happy Fall to you!

My neck of the woods… I thought if I posted some of my fall pictures from previous years, it would help fall to remember what it’s suppose to look like. Last year was a wash, the leaves turned brown and fell to the ground. It’s looking pretty similar here in Maryland so far this year, …

Family Vacation in Corolla, North Carolina (OBX)

Welcome to our family vacation in Corolla, North Carolina. This was a 5 hour trip for us. Tropical storm Hermine just finished showing her evil face prior to our arrival, so you can imagine the mess she left. We arrived to  our beach house to find the pool covered with leaves, branches and two chairs that sank …

Harpers Ferry West Virginia

For Brandon’s birthday we went to Harpers Ferry in West Virginia. It was only about an hour and 30 minutes away for us and was an enjoyable time! The Bavarian Inn We decided to maximize our day by getting there early and starting the birthday festivities. First we grabbed something to eat at this spot on …

Western Maryland Vacation

Rocky Gap Casino & Spa I heard about this place over the years and decided to visit this summer. My favorite thing about this resort is that it’s on a state park… Rocky Gap State Park. It’s located in Flintstone, MD and looks exactly like the pictures on the website. I can’t say the same for the rooms …

Golden Fields of Flowers

Butlers Orchard This is a great place to visit with the entire family. I haven’t been here since I worked in daycare which was some time ago. When you arrive, the first thing you see is the farmers market. Next as you drive up to pay the admission fee of $3 per person, you see the …

Jewel Box

I decided to start working on this project again as I never completed it. I think this was a rainy day project, so it’s been up on the shelf ever since. I like purchasing wooden boxes from craft stores, they can be used for so many things and they allow for a world of creativity. They also make …

Animal Runway

A Day at the Zoo I try to make it a point to go to the zoo at least once every year. This summer I went to the National Zoo located Washington, DC here.  Animals are fascinating to me! One of my absolute favorite places to start is the Asia Trail. It holds a lot of the must see animals in my …

Colors of the Sun

The warmth of the rays as the sun begins to rise and takes it’s place in the sky is something everyone should have the opportunity to experience. The very first thing I do in the morning is open my blinds to let the light in. As the light touches my skin as it shines through my window, I am rejuvenated …

Devin L. Macon

Thanks for stopping by! Here is where I invite you to do life with me. Spend good times with me and my family, come along on one of my many travels or adventures, check out my latest crafts, or take a look at what I capture through my lens. Learn how much of a nature brat …

Peacock Beauty

My favorite bird in all it’s beauty! Such a fabulous, bold creature! It deserves it’s own spot light! That is all… The National Zoo (Washington, DC)

Sure you can borrow my face…

My Brittany! I’m older, but thankfully it appears hard to tell by others. I’m always up for compliments. Being the older sister I’ve had the pleasure of watching her grow and mature into the fabulous woman she has become today. She was my tag along when we were young, my mini me during my school …
