This was the second photo shoot taken at Sideling Hill Road Cut (aka The Cut) in Western Maryland.  After the photo shoot, an older woman struck up a conversation with Dad and me.  She told us her family is local to the area and that her great, great, great grandfather was part of the construction crew that blasted through the mountains.  “Great, great, great grandfather”, I asked?  “Yes,” said the woman, “great, great, great grandfather.”  Well, he must have been one fit old man considering construction occurred in the early 1980s!  😉  (more…)

I am slow as molasses when it comes to getting ready.  Last August, during my trip to San Diego, my Forever BFF, Tammy, was so bewildered at the length of time it took me to get ready that she woke up early just to observe my morning ritual!  This time around, she woke up 30 minutes before we had to leave for our Savannah tour.  (more…)

Now that I have a deep appreciation for history, I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by it.  Historic St. Mary’s City in St. Mary’s County, Maryland was the site for this latest photo shoot.  (more…)

St. Mary’s City Waterfront – Savannah, GA Adventure Highlights: Part 1

My Forever BFF, Tammy, can be quite humorous.  From the moment I picked her up at the airport, we were in stitches.  She was telling me about her flight and her long delay at the Houston, TX airport.  There, she was speaking with an individual to pass time.  This guy asked her where she was headed and she said with cautious confidence, “Charlotte, South Carolina!”  However, from the look on the man’s face, she knew she said something incorrect.  So, she reacted with, “I think.”  The guy snickered and Tammy added, “North Carolina?  South Carolina?  I don’t know!  I just know it’s one of the Carolinas!” 🙂 (more…)

The weekend we took these pics, my dad was dealing with a bad cold.  He did not let on how sick he was until we were on our way to Western Maryland for this photo shoot.  I felt awful and suggested we cancel the shoot, but my dad said he took medicine and was feeling better.  So, we headed to Sideling Hill Road Cut (aka The Cut).

Last Saturday, I got to spend time with my Godson, Andrew, and niece, Kristin.  On their way to the beach, my brother and his family took a break from their drive for some family time.  The kids were excited too about a slumber party with Aunt Lizzy.  🙂          (more…)

It’s always a great weekend when we can take blog pictures and indulge in Civil War history.  My dad and I did exactly that Fourth of July weekend.  We toured Union General Ulysses S. Grant’s Headquarters at City Point Museum, located inside Appomattox Manor approximately 8 miles outside Petersburg, VA and part of the Petersburg National Battlefield.     (more…)

Petersburg National Battlefield: City Point – Reunions and Milestones

I’m back!  🙂  I had a lovely interlude of fun with my Forever BFF, Tammy, and my family.  One of the most memorable moments of my trip was at the beginning when Tammy was reunited with my brother, Michael.  Michael was best friends with her brother, Carl.  Together, the four of us were inseparable.  We were the four musketeers.  🙂  We had fun together and at times were even disciplined together… (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Sassey Two Piece Fringe Sandals

I am a girly-girl at heart.  So, I could not help, but fall in love with these fringe lace ups by Steve Madden.  They are the epitome of sexy!  The flirty fringe at the toe strap is so playful that I found myself stretching my legs in a dramatic walk to catch a glimpse of the ever so subtle swoosh of the fringe.  😉  What adds glamour to this sandal is the approximately 4.25 inch heel (pretty high even for me) and the ankle strap lace ups.  I love the tassel detail at the end of the lace ups too.  It adds such a nice touch to this gorgeous heel.  (more…)

In less than two weeks, my BFF, Tammy, and I will be on our way to Savannah, GA!  Hard to believe, but Tammy has never been to the East Coast or the South.  Her biggest anxiety is the thought of mosquitoes eating her alive because she is very prone to getting bit.  We always joke she has sweet blood!  😉  I told her not to worry because I will bring the bug spray.  🙂
