On being “lucky”

Who and what is lucky? Recently, since losing my job, some have told me that I’m “lucky”. Lucky in that I have a lot of free time. Especially because it’s summer and I can enjoy sitting outside on my deck in the middle of the day. Or sitting at Starbucks for hours, people watching and … Continue reading

It’s Artomatic!

If you live in or around the DC area and have some free time today, tonight, or tomorrow, I would highly suggest checking out Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City. I had never heard of it, but on Wednesday afternoon I was invited by a friend to come meet her there. I had nothing else on … Continue reading

Checked off – Cherry blossoms

Last week after work, Noah and I took the metro downtown to see the Cherry Blossoms by the Tidal Basin. While the National Cherry Blossom Festival wasn’t starting for another two days, I still considered this goal checked off since all I cared about was seeing the trees anyway. I grew up in Maryland and while I’m pretty sure … Continue reading

Spring sneak peek

These past few days have been a lot of fun. A big part of that has to do with the fact that the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am so grateful for this! My mother in law was staying with us for the weekend, but we had other things going on too. We had … Continue reading

Bucket List – A day in Annapolis

I love making lists. I’m a chronic list maker. Even more so than making the list, I love crossing things off of them. I’m especially excited to be regularly crossing off some things on my DC Bucket List. I know that the warmer it gets, the more things I’ll be able to cross off. And … Continue reading

Sweet, savory, salmon

Even though I call myself a vegetarian, I do (currently) eat fish. One of my favorite fish to eat is salmon. It’s healthy, delicious and easy to make. My mom introduced me to this recipe when she made it for Christmas dinner and ever since, I’m obsessed. It’s incredibly easy, you probably already have most … Continue reading

A photo a day keeps the forgetting away

On January 1, fellow blogger Kira from Her New Leaf suggested starting a project called Click 366 – where each person participating posts one photo each day in 2012. I decided to participate and have been posting a photo each day since day 1. It’s been difficult some days to come up with something to … Continue reading

Eternal Optimist

I know I’m late to hop on this bandwagon, but I just bought my first Essie nail polish last weekend. I tried it out last night and love it. I don’t usually paint my nails (Noah likes them au naturale) but decided I like this color because its more subdued than the typical hues. It’s … Continue reading

Summer on my mind

I can’t stop thinking about summer. Long days. Warm nights. The lake. Sundresses. Flip flops. It’s been too long. This summer I hope to have a picture taken of us like this… Source And be able to take a picture (with my own camera) like this…. Source Summer makes me happy. And thankfully it’s only … Continue reading

Soup from “scratch”

The past week or so, I’ve been feeling a little more adventurous when it comes to cooking. And by that I mean, I started to cook. It’s not that I’ve never cooked, but I don’t do it as often as I should, or even want to. It comes to down to me not knowing how … Continue reading
