About Me

My photo
A 30-something living in the foothills of the Virginia mountains; I'm saved by grace, addicted to coffee and my little sister is my best friend! I devote most of my time to exploring, reading, attending as many Nationals games as possible and documenting life here. My Prince Charming got lost somewhere along the way...but I'm trying to remain hopeful that true love exists.

The Flashback - March

I don't know about you - I feel like March absolutely flew by! The heaviness of Winter is starting to fall away and there are things to do...places to go... The weather is much nicer and beckons you outside to do and see and just be out and active once more. I think I accomplished that this March! Between flying down to Mississippi, spending time with friends and finally getting back into DC after what seems like months... March was a great month; not just this year, but for so many years that have gone by.

And then there are the pictures I have that I know occurred in a March that has long since gone by...but the years on some of them are a bit fuzzy...So...they go in the section on this post known as March(es) of the Past... Most of which include pictures of me with some serious high school realness... Cracks me up!

I'll leave you with this... I look back at some of these pictures and it makes me think: I'm not the person that the seventeen...eighteen year old girl thought I'd be at thirty-one. I think I'm still reconciling myself with that. Life is funny in that way; it never quite turns out the way you think it will.
