| 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 |

| A Backyard Agenda: Fairfax, VA |

The idea of a long weekend without plans is a foreign concept to me: It feels unsettling in my very core (although an uncluttered agenda might truly do me some good.) Nevertheless, as June came to a close I felt compelled to start looking for things to do in our area, Northern Virginia day trips… Continue reading | A Backyard Agenda: Fairfax, VA |

I therefore consulted Google to assist: The Assignment: Choose Beliefs For Each Area You Wish To Transform The Term: be·lief bəˈlēf/ (n.) an acceptance that a statement is true… Continue reading |My Brand New Belief System |

| For The Love Of Monday |

"I close my eyes and breathe deeply: Such serenity transports me to tomorrow. I wake up before the sun rises: It’s Monday. I love Mondays. I smile as my eyes flutter open, reach to my right to turn off my alarm. My husband still lays sleeping next to me, so I quietly slip out of… Continue reading | For The Love Of Monday |

| Game Changers |

The first week back to work was much more draining than expected. After a twelve-hour Monday, my Tuesday-Friday seemed to drag. Although I made small steps to ensure that I was engaging in more productive activities, my #tut30days challenge was put on pause while I crashed on the couch post- 6PM. This remains my biggest… Continue reading | Game Changers |
