Southern Maryland – Fearless

I always get nervous when I have to drive to unfamiliar places.  Fortunately, it’s not as intimidating anymore with a GPS navigator and apps like Waze to direct me.  I used both to guide me to my Aunt Lisa, Uncle Shawn, and cousin, Caroline’s house back in July. (more…)

Shoespiration – White House Black Market Ruby Suede Pumps

I recently returned from my annual girls trip with my Forever BFF, Tammy.  Adventure led us to New Orleans, LA this year.  It was a great time and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with Tammy.  I will share the details of this trip in a future blog post, of course.  😉

Collaboration – torturedSoles

I’ve always adored traditional pumps.  I find them beautifully timeless and fiercely feminine.  Over the years, I have tried to wear them, but my narrow heels would always slip out of the heels causing me great frustration and embarrassment.  Eventually, I discovered heel inserts and thought they would be the solution to my narrow heels.  The drug store brands did solve the heel issue, but their bulk made the toe box extremely tight and painful.  For a while, I endured the pain for fashion’s sake, but the nightly toe cramps finally convinced me that traditional pumps were simply not compatible with my narrow heels.  Sigh…

Unable to wear traditional pumps, my feelings start with sadness…

Then, evolve to utter frustration!

Richmond, VA – Maymont Mansion – Thankful

When the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) reunited back in late 2007, I was one of the lucky fans who saw them live on the Today Show on May 16, 2008, their first live concert since 1994!  Now an adult, it was exciting and surreal to watch the boyband of my childhood performing right in front of me.  Donnie Wahlberg (my favorite New Kid) flashed his million dollar smile at me and my heart raced as I smiled back.

Washington DC – The Capitol – The Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice Adventure

As much as I love kids, there was a time when I never wanted any of my own.  That mindset evolved to if I ever had kids, I only wanted boys.  Then, my brother, Michael, and his wife, Shannon, had my niece, Kristin and that sentiment went out the window.  (more…)

Washington, DC – Jefferson Memorial – Ode to my Father

One of the earliest lessons my father taught me was to always honor your commitments.  Integrity is one of my dad’s greatest virtues and it guides him in all aspects of his life.  With my dad, if he’s committed to doing something, he ALWAYS follows through.  He is simply a man of his word.     (more…)
