Smallwood State Park – New Beginnings

A few weeks ago, Feedspot, an online RSS feed reader, compiled a list of the Top 75 Shoe Websites and Blogs on the Web based on their index using search and social metrics.  To my surprise and delight, Lizzy’s Latest made this list!  My little blog came in at number 51 with plenty of room to grow! 🙂 (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Cameron Silver for Nine West Painted Heart Boots

When we shot this photo shoot a few weekends ago, it was meant for a mini blog post.  My intent was to have a new segment on the blog that would feature fashion inspiration in between full blog posts.  It would be my way to stay connected with all of you in the interim because publishing monthly sometimes feels like too long of an absence, at least to me.  However, we took so many great shots that I decided to bump the heel/outfit combo I initially had for February and go with this heel/outfit combo instead.  And just FYI…the new segment is still in the works.  So, stay tuned!

Southern Maryland – Vanishing Santa!

At dinner with my parents a month ago, Mom asked if I could print a Kohls coupon for her.  I assured her I would, and thought nothing more of it.  As we continued talking, Mom started nudging Dad and giggling.  I could tell Dad did not want to acknowledge what was unspoken between them.  Of course, that piqued my curiosity prompting me to ask: (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – White House Black Market Rebel Suede Moto Boots

The weekend we took these pictures, we had no particular destination in mind.  Surrendering to wanderlust, we headed to Richmond, our default destination for adventure.  Eventually, we settled on the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden named after one of Richmond’s beloved citizens.  (more…)

Richmond, VA – Beaver Dam Creek Battlefield – Happy New Year!

Back in early December, my dad sent me, my mom, brother, and sister separate emails with the following question:

“Who in our family is the most excited by, desirous of, jazzed over toys?”

Our response was unanimous:  MOM!

Yes, even Mom said, “Mom.”  😉  (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Marc Fisher Kava Tasseled Booties

Is it just me or are you still scrambling to get “everything” done before Christmas?  Time always escapes me this time of year, but even more so this year!  With only 4 days left until Christmas, I’ve yet to send out Christmas cards.  (more…)

Southern MD – The Thomas Stone House – Thanksgiving Fun

What’s a Thanksgiving celebration without a little family fun?  Ever since my brother got married, we have always teased him about not cooking a turkey.  Instead he and his wife, Shannon, usually order a turkey dinner from their local grocery store.  Perish the thought…especially if you grew up in an Italian household like we did.      (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – INC International Concepts Laini Block-Heel booties

wed-1-img_3021-finalDue to the rain, we remained local for this photo shoot.  Dad and I drove to the Thomas Stone House in Port Tobacco, MD.  If you’re not familiar with the name, you’re not alone.  When I first moved to Southern Maryland, I had no idea who Thomas Stone was either.  However, I quickly learned that Thomas Stone was one of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence.  That is quite an accomplishment for a humble planter and lawyer.

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…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Slithur Caged Sandals

wed-1-img_1358-finalThis photo shoot continues our tour of the Petersburg National Battlefield.  This time we took pictures in an area where a handful of men from the Union army clandestinely dug a mine that reached the Confederate lines.  Once under the Confederate position, the mine was filled with explosives and detonated!  The explosion caused the Earth to tremble propelling Confederate men and artillery into the air and creating a huge crater that was at least 30 feet deep and approximately 120 feet wide!  (more…)
