Port Tobacco, Maryland – Thomas Stone House – Kindness and Thanksgiving

1-20161008_114846-final

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week!  I’ve been in a festive mood since the beginning of November.  I was at the mall and Hallmark was having a special on Christmas cards.  I could not help myself, I purchased two boxes of cards knowing I would probably only need one. (more…)

I have to admit, I’ve lived in Southern Maryland for many years now and this was my first time in Solomons Island.  It is a quaint town on the Patuxent River/Chesapeake Bay.  Very picturesque.  It is a perfect destination for a weekend getaway and/or a photo shoot.  🙂 (more…)

Solomons Island – Savannah, GA Adventure Highlights: Part 3

Charleston, SC is a city I enjoy visiting because of its Civil War past.  So, it was only natural for my Forever BFF, Tammy, and I to take a day trip there.  We left Savannah early Sunday morning.  When we were about 20 miles into South Carolina, traffic came to a crawl on Interstate 95 North.  Tammy exclaimed:  “Look!” and we saw an exit ramp flooded with a submerged car!

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…)

George Washington Birthplace National Monument – Two for the Road: San Diego Snags Savannah

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.  🙂

Lizzy’s Latest – White House Black Market Saffron Lace Up Cork Wedge Sandals

WED 1 IMG_0032 FinalI used to have a fondness for wedge sandals until a conversation with a male friend had me re-thinking my attachment to them.  According to this fellow, wedge sandals are the antithesis of sexy.  Sexiness to him is a woman in stiletto heels.  Given my love of stilettos, I could not argue with him there.  However, his aversion to wedges almost ruined my affinity for them!  (more…)

Smallwood State Park – I Love You Mom!

1 20160430_150157 Final

When I was growing up, I was a handful.  My mom told me I was a wild child with mischievous tendencies and a stubborn will.  At a young age, I remember being a curious kid eager to explore the world despite my mom’s attempt to keep me within her parental boundaries.  My independent nature certainly kept my mom on her toes because any lapse in her attention often resulted in unintended situations.

I initially went with red heels to match the denim dress I wore in this photo shoot.  Coordinating red heels with blue attire is a common tendency of mine.  I like having that pop of red.  🙂  Then, I opened my first delivery of Spring/Summer shoes a few weekends ago and set my eyes on the Marc Fisher Braelin sandals.  The pink is even prettier in person!  I could imagine wearing these sandals on a date.  🙂  They are so feminine.  The braided details are eye-catching and add a nice texture to this shoe.

These chic heels have been part of my shoe collection for many years now.  I am so delighted to finally feature them on my blog and share them with you.  I love the white strap detailing on the shoe.  It truly adds a level of elegance to the stiletto heel, in my opinion.  It is a very unique looking pump.
