Category Archives: Just For Fun


I was so excited this past weekend to share in Kharis turning 2. It is crazy how much time goes by. This little girl is spunky, compassionate, and full of grace. She is sweet and is always full of joy. So, what better way to celebrate then have a small family get together and have the camera out to get some fun photos. We usually watch the fireworks here and I thought it would be brilliant, but the grass was knee high. The kids didn’t seem to mind. They loved playing and running with daddy. We finished up down by the lake where the kids could throw rocks and just sit and watch the clouds together. My cup runneth over.

He was at the door.

We drove hours (traffic not so fun) to our nation’s capital.

My husband was running a marathon.

26.2 miles.


In my heart I was nervous, but I couldn’t wait to share this journey with him.

We talked, laughed, and arrived in the city. It was pouring rain. Not what I had anticipated to pick up his materials at the North Face Store for the race, but embracing and adapting to change is fun and exciting.

On the way, we found a cupcake shop.

Then set out to find the Lincoln Memorial with our umbrellas in the rain.

The memories of that night I will treasure for years to come.

The Many Faces Of Kharis

Our little Kharis is super expressive.

It’s amazing how many different emotions she can convey with those adorable little eyes.

These are from a lazy Saturday a couple weeks ago when we had some girl time!
