| Radiating Positivity |

This is a blog post about gratitude. On my workday commute I usually listen to Sirius radio (“Simply Sinatra” is my go-to) or catch up with family members and friends- With mom on the line and a coffee in hand, I95 seems slightly more bearable. I had to get my car fixed a few weeks… Continue reading | Radiating Positivity |

| Checked Out: February Book Review |

“You Are A Badass: How To Stop Doubting Your Greatness & Start Living An Awesome Life,” by Jen Sincero was on my Amazon Wish List and was purchased by my sister for Christmas.

| Checked Out: January Book Review |

In 2017, I read a total of six books. SIX. That's like, one book every two months. As someone who grew up as a "flashlight under the covers" literary addict, I want to make it a point to read a book a month this year- Invest in myself by indulging in one of my favorite… Continue reading | Checked Out: January Book Review |

| Practice In A Parking Lot. |

How do people improve on the ambitions they pursue? In a recent blog post I contemplated possible resolutions and goals for 2018, and the word “investment” resonated with me. I vowed to do more than swirl through my day to day, but sink, deeply and wholeheartedly into each 24-hour span of time. To be completely… Continue reading | Practice In A Parking Lot. |

| Okay. |

Life: It’s such a strange thing. Whether trying to create a new one, fight for an existing one, celebrate milestones, contemplate past chronicles, or prepare for future occasions… Sometimes things just don’t go according to plan. ---- In October of last year, I went to the doctor for an issue that I had been struggling… Continue reading | Okay. |

| Adding Depth & Dimension |

We all look forward to this time of year: It’s without a doubt the most influential of all seasons, an ultimate “blank page” upon January’s arrival. It’s something we reflect upon, prepare for, accept with enthusiasm no matter what triumphs or tribulations transpired in the past. We either ache for a fresh start, grasp at… Continue reading | Adding Depth & Dimension |

| 2018: A New Day One. |

My husband is really good at buying gifts. I open this monologue with the above, carefully crafted sentence, and must clarify that my husband is really good at venturing to my Amazon wish list and adding all affordable and reasonable items to his cart. (I say reasonable because all items are not fair game- He… Continue reading | 2018: A New Day One. |

| The 2017 Andrews Air Show: Fed Ex Field, Maryland |

I've never been to an Air Show before, but have always marveled at the beauty and wonder associated with one of man's most incredible inventions. As a frequent commercial flier and a recent aircraft history enthusiast, watching mechanical birds in the sky- or riding in them- is something that I truly enjoy. When my husband… Continue reading | The 2017 Andrews Air Show: Fed Ex Field, Maryland |

| Back In Time At Bull Run: Manassas, VA |

Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I head to a website called jetpunk.com for party-of-one trivia games under the covers. I will admit, I am not good at most topics (animals and pop culture seem to be my only two strengths) but one quiz made me take a screenshot of my answers before unplugging for the… Continue reading | Back In Time At Bull Run: Manassas, VA |

| Sunny Souvenirs: Burnside Farms, Haymarket, VA |

If I were to close my eyes and ponder a few of my favorite things, “Sundays” and “Sunflowers” would undoubtedly find themselves on my mental vision board. Well today, I got to frolic in fields of gold with my love as we uncovered yet another NoVa gem, Burnside Farms in Haymarket, Virginia. Many years ago… Continue reading | Sunny Souvenirs: Burnside Farms, Haymarket, VA |
