Since I've Been Home

Sunday, April 12, 2015

Going away isn’t for everyone. There are a lot of factors that you must consider when thinking about going away… whether you are going away for school, a job, or even a vacation. And when there are so many things you have to think about, you’re guaranteed to miss something in the process.

Old Town Alexandria

President's Day Long Weekend

Monday, February 16, 2015

Part One: Saturday Happy Birthday Washington!! And a post-happy Valentine’s Day to everyone! Hope somebody spoiled you…. and if it not, hope you at least treated yourself. I know I did.

Its A New Week

Monday, February 09, 2015

First of all, I just want to say how crazy this week was for me; and crazy in a good way. And if you read my blog post from last week, and compare it to my blog post this week, you may also just think I am crazy... in general. Monday to Wednesday:
