Shoespiration: Vince Camuto Welton Moto Boots

Now that my shoe blog is monthly, the time in between posts sometimes feels like too long of an absence from all of you, at least to me.  As such, I’ve launched a new segment on my blog called, “Shoespiration.”  🙂  Its intent is to fill the fashion void that lingers between my main blog posts.  It’s a mini blog post; a sort of fashion fix if you will to get us through the month.  😉 (more…)

This photo shoot was taken at a historic courthouse in Port Tobacco, MD.  It was mid-January and we were blessed with a relatively warm day.  So, we took advantage of the weather and shot some nice nature shots here. (more…)

Port Tobacco, MD – No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

As a practicing Roman Catholic, one of my favorite weekly activities is attending Mass.  I see it as visiting God in His house once a week.  Going to church is also cathartic for me.  Whatever struggles I may have encountered during the week dissipates as I participate in the Mass.  By the end of Mass my spirit feels renewed, my mind is clear, and I leave with a calming sense of peace.

For this heel/outfit combo, I was searching for a location that was serene and unspoiled.  Mount Carmel Monastery in Port Tobacco, Maryland came to mind after I remembered a conversation I had with a priest one year.  Without going into too much detail, he wanted me to talk to a nun at Mount Carmel about religious life.  I had thought about becoming a nun when I was in high school, but that thought dissipated when I started college.  I did as he asked and as magnanimous and humbling a cloistered life in a monastery would be for me, it was definitely not something I wanted to pursue.  I walked the grounds after my conversation and even sat in the little chapel for a bit noting the beauty of this hidden treasure built in 1790.  It was the perfect setting for this chic heel/outfit combo.    (more…)

Mount Carmel Monastery – ‘Tis the Season for Volunteering

During the early years of the Civil War Sesquicentennial (2011-2015), my dad and I visited many Civil War battlefields and museums for the first time.  After visiting the Museum of the Confederacy (MoC) where the White House of the Confederacy is located in Richmond, VA, I fell in love with Southern history and heritage.  I was enthralled and engaged, but I wanted more.  I had thought about volunteering and my dad even suggested I look into volunteering at the MoC, but it never came to fruition.  Yet, the yearning for something more lingered.

Last Saturday, the weather was partly sunny, around 58 degrees, and with a breeze.  It was perfect weather for wearing booties.  With the cooler temps, I paired them with a long-sleeved plaid top cinched with a belt and cords.  Both top and pants are from Ann Taylor Loft.         (more…)

Dr. Mudd House Museum – Baptism, Babies, and Blessings

It is rare to have my whole family together all at once.  So, imagine my excitement and anticipation as I made my drive to my brother, Michael’s, house in South Carolina for my Godson’s baptism.  My sister and parents had arrived the afternoon before and were already settled.  (more…)
