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 - July

How are there just three days until August? I'm not counting today...by the way... so really there are only three days left in July. This month has included so many good things this year and in the years of the past. 

I noticed my family really has a penchant for going to Disney World in July - which honestly; of course we would pick the hottest month on the calendar to go to Florida! 

Fireworks at Antietam National Battlefield.
Fourth of July at Nationals Park.
We do love ourselves some Nationals baseball.
Rally Cap Action in late July....

You'll never forget your first sip of Butterbeer.

My very first visit to Long Branch Plantation...
Also a first - as in my first Washington Nationals game.
Just posing...moments later I would notice a spider on my shoulder & lose my mind.
Open your eyes Natalie! 

Has anyone else noticed that I can never find pictures from 2012?? What in the world was going on in 2012?!? I don't know...but I know I can't ever find photographic evidence. Ha-ha!

Storage before the big move to my new home.
The Fourth of July weekend in Strasburg, VA.
Delicious desserts at Shenandoah Lodge.

Sweet times with a sweet friend & her baby girl.

The summer of Hallmark with Brock...the only picture I could find...

And as always, now that I've made it ten years back in time...if you'll forgive that I completely omitted the year of 2012...because no pictures...of course, a couple pictures from WAY back in the day. 

Pictures that further cement my theory: my family loves to take vacations in July in tropical climates to frolic with large animals. Hahahaha...you know, Disney World...

We are especially fond of large rodents...
They are just our most fave...hehehe.
I think I'm all of about sixteen here...
That's all for this month's edition of The Flashback! I cannot wrap my head around the fact that there are only five months left in this year. What in the world?!?
