Hiking in the Mountains

While most of America was at home watching the Presidential Inauguration, TB and I decided to go hiking together. We had a GREAT time! I honestly think that was my first time actually voluntarily went walking in the forest, lol. 
The drive out to the mountains wasn’t too bad at all and the scenery was beautiful. The weather ended up being really nice, despite the Weather Man calling for a cold cloudy day, the sky was blue and the sun was shining bright. 

It was really nice to relax, take in the views atop the mountain, and reconnect with nature.

I was astonished by all the uprooted trees in the area. Literally everywhere you looked a tree had fallen over. This is a photo of an uproot tree trunk… It looked a lot more meaningful in person, so clearly I need practice with my photography, lol. 
Getting away from the city and suburbs for a little while and getting some nice refreshing mountain air was much needed and I hope to go back again soon. Until we visit again, we’ll be there is spirit (or dirt, lol)…. 

Dusk.

After shooting a few shots for the Cutwork. Clothing line, my eye captured the beautiful setting around me at Dusk.
I love my sister’s creativity. Reaching for the sky!
Until next time…. Peace.

 

xmas gifts!

Oh the joy of opening gifts on Christmas! I had an amazing Christmas this year and I couldn’t have asked for more! Here are a few things I got and some other gifts that were opened…

The first gift that I opened on Christmas Day was my new camera! I absolutely LOVE this camera and it is just what I’ve been asking for! As you can see, the picture quality is stunning!

TB also got me a BEAUTIFUL Pink Diamond Key Necklace. I can’t wait to wear it on our next Date Night! 
I had been hinting at a Michael Kors watch & my Mom surprised me and got it! You can see more pictures in the Michael Kors post [HERE] and as you see, I’ve already added it to the collection…
And I cannot wait to wear this Wine Rose clutch!
I also got a lot of perfume, which was great because I’m practically running on fumes of my current stash. I even got the Issey Miyake that I was raving about a few months ago [HERE]. 

Also, some “Candy” by Prada….
And I can’t forget the Flower Bomb… but I’ve been wearing this since I came from London. Early xmas gift, lol! 
We also watched my Mom, Dad, and Sister open gifts…

And last but not least, my xmas tradition. For xmas, I always [this being the 2nd year, lol] get TB some Louis Vuitton. So, this year, I got him a Black & Grey Damier Scarf; and he loved it! 

on my ride home.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE new camera that I got for xmas! On my way home from work today, I decided to test out the “Sunset” setting…

I was passing by Andrews Force Base and the sky was beautiful! Then, I put my camera away until I got closer to the National Harbor!
