October Colors

Fall Garden My parents showed off this year with their elaborate garden. Every time I went to visit the plants were taller and even more vibrant. I believe the plants are 3 feet now. The pictures below do it no justice. Sometimes I sit in my car or on the front porch to admire the …

A Day Off

We decided to take a break from all the wedding planning for our big day which is coming up next month might I add. After this weekend literally don’t have another free one until mid July. It was nice to have a few days where nothing was pressing so we took full advantage of it. …

Get Lost on Purpose

Lost Fall Files I stumbled upon these photos while browsing through some pics on my computer. No clue how I missed these. The first time we came across this hidden treasure we were driving around…you know, getting lost on purpose like we often do and ended up here at Triadelphia Reservoir which derives from the …

Meridian Hill Park

Pardon the clarity of the pictures in this blog. They were taken with my old camera. I was proud of them at the time they were taken, but just like anything else, as you progress you look back and feel otherwise…Lol! Welcome to Median Hill Park! This place has a lot of character. I visited …

Outside My Window

What more can  you ask for than to wake up with the sun penetrating through the leaves every morning to reveal the potent colors of fall. Right in my own back yard! Always puts a smile on my face!    

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 …

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, …

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 …

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 …
