Our Honeymoon in Greece

Our Honeymoon in Greece

So we did it. A little over a month ago, Ivan and I got married. I haven’t received our full set of photos from our photographer yet, so I’ll wait to recap the wedding until I get the pictures. So we are going to jump forward a bit and talk about the honeymoon. First off, here’s our honeymoon video. If you’d rather watch that and skip the photo recap… that’s totally cool.  I just thought it would be a fun…

Weekending: The One With National Dog Day

Weekending: The One With National Dog Day

How was everyones weekend? Mine was pretty relaxed. I made an effort to keep it low-key, considering the upcoming month is going to be so insane. I can’t believe we’re getting married in less than two weeks. I’m not nervous, but it’s just weird. I think the strangest thing for me is going to be changing my name.

You’ve probably heard of the smaller museum that’s on the national mall,…

We drove about an hour away to Matapeake Beach to teach Kidd to swim. It’s the closest dog friendly beach to DC and it’s actually pretty nice. It’s right over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge – across the bay from Sandy Pointe. It’s…

Weekending: The One Where I spent Friday Night in Mexico

Weekending: The One Where I spent Friday Night in Mexico

On Friday night I went to Mexico for the first time. Well, technically anyway. Ivan and I attended a party at the Mexican Cultural Institute & Embassy, which is by law, Mexican ground. Last night we attended an event at the Mexican Cultural Instutiude (& Embassy). We were treated to Mexican beer, tequilla, food, art & musical performances. It was such a fantastic night. The building hosts all sorts of events and is open to the public during the week….
