Sunflowers in Southern Maryland

With the arrival of my little muse in November of 2020, I finally have the perfect excuse to fulfill all my photography dreams. I’m much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, and my husband doesn’t really “get” artsy photos, so my daughter is the perfect subject. One thing I’ve always wanted […]

Burnside Farms Tulip Fields

Although the weather doesn’t always seem to agree, spring is here in the DMV. We’ve had several weeks of beautiful blue sky days with highs above 70, and then suddenly rain, cold, and near-freezing temperatures.

Mount Olivet Cemetery

For anyone who’s been around this blog for any amount of time, you know I’m not a big history person. That is absolutely Sean’s domain. Occasionally, I will begrudgingly visit a museum just to make him happy. But it’s really not my thing. However, one aspect of history I do enjoy is old historic cemeteries. […]

Five Days in Myrtle Beach

A few weeks ago we embarked on our first-ever road trip as a family of three down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was also my first real vacation since coming back home to the U.S. in 2019 and after a full year of Vacation Deficit Disorder (it’s a thing), five days at the beach […]

Caucasian Carpets Gallery

In the two years we’ve been in Tbilisi we’ve probably walked past Caucasian and Oriental Carpets Gallery down by Sioni Cathedral in Old Tbilisi no less than a hundred times.
