Hello readers, this past weekend I decided to leave my house and to go the Water Lantern Festival held in Mount Trashmore Park down in Virginia Beach. I originally saw the advertisement for it on Instagram and I was hooked from the very beginning. This festival is just magical. There are many values the festival shares and wants you to experience, such as happiness and … Continue reading The Water Lantern Festival in Virginia Beach
One afternoon my parents convinced us to hop on a time machine and learn all about the Colonial times and how important Williamsburg was and still is. The most important thing for us was that our adorable Pops was allowed to come with us, as long as he did not go inside a building! I really enjoyed the experience. Visitors are invited to cross the … Continue reading Time Travel in Williamsburg
Hello everyone, I am back! I apologize for missing the deadline last week, but my life has been crazy. Not only I moved from Connecticut to Virginia, but I also had family visit the area, so I was never home. Not even get me started on unpacking, I have so much stuff in the spare bedroom that I already received the usual ultimatum from men … Continue reading A Rant and National Rescue Dog Day

Easter this year was welcomed by tornadoes and flood warnings in Virginia, but we didn’t let that stop us from putting our steps in, going on an adventure, and soaking the spring in. It ended up not being that bad at all: yes, it rained a lot … Continue reading Conquering The Newport News Park

But I am also a strong believer rain gives an intense character to your pictures. So, on a rainy day, we drove to the picturesque Jamestown and we put … Continue reading Ferryboat Ride on James River
Since when Pops joined our family, I have always wondered whether he liked the beach or not. One weekend we decided to drive down to Virginia Beach and see if he likes it or not. Well, he loves it. He immediately rubbed himself in the sand and started running around like a very happy pupper. Before going we were a little worried because I was … Continue reading Pops and the Beach
