Finally Back

After a long break from my little home here on the internet, I am back. I never intended to be gone this long but in some ways it was actually nice and I am back to feeling inspired. So before I go into an update, I hope you like my new blog name. Since I have been gone so long and I have gone through some changes, the new name fits me and the season of life I am in. So here is my update.


  1. Williamsburg Trip

Colin and I went on our anniversary trip at the end of June. This is also where the fate of my phone was sealed and I had a heck of a time trying to get back in, till today. It was such a nice time, even if I did end up losing my phone.

2. Boating

I went boating with my Grandpa. I read and I enjoyed having a phone again.

3. Gettysburg Trip

We took a family trip to Gettysburg. We always go to Gettysburg, so I don’t think I need to go into to much detail.

4. Hershey Park

We went to Hershey Park. Let me tell you, this peanut butter chocolate chip scone, was amazing.

5. Harry Potter Convention

My sister and I attended The Harry Potter Convention in Baltimore City. Super fun to listen to Devon Murray talk about his time filming the movies.

6. Second Gettysburg Trip

We went back to Gettysburg, this time it was just Colin and I.

6. Franklin WVa

I visited my Aunt in West Virginia. I love this little town and I always enjoy my time.

7. Watching My Niece

I got to watch my niece a good bit, and being her Aunt Bee is one of my favorite things in this world.

8. Wedding Season

We attended 4 weddings this year.

9. Sister in Laws Bridal Shower

We celebrated Chloe’s upcoming day.

10. Third Gettysburg Trip

We went back for another Gettysburg Trip.

11. Sister In Laws Wedding

Chloe’s wedding which I helped coordinate.

12. Christmas

I love Christmas. I baked cookies, saw the Nutcracker, and loved having my tree up.

13. Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry

The day before Christmas Eve, Colin and I went to Antietam and Harpers Ferry. It was a much needed trip to kick off our holiday season!

To come: So if you made it here congratulations and thank you for sticking with me. I tried to make sure to keep everything simple and straight to the point. I have a couple of things coming up that are exciting and I am looking forward to blogging about it.

NYC Trip:

I am going to New York City! This is my second time going up there and my first overnight stay. I will also be seeing Anastasia on Broadway! So excited!!

I plan to take as many pictures as I can and I am excited to share with you all.

I also will be seeing a couple of other shows next year but those will be posts for another day.

Thank you for reading and sticking around! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and Holiday season and I will see you next year!

XOXO Brandy


A Belated Christmas

I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas! My Christmas has been lovely and I am excited that my blog is turning a year old on the 31st! I am so excited for this up coming year and can not wait to share with you what’s new! May you have a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends and I will post on the 31st!

Love you all,

Winter Wonderland

Sitting in Dunkin Donuts with some ladies from church, when I looked up and saw it was snowing. I am not a huge fan of snow, but it does remind me of God’s grace covering sins.

When Colin got home from running errands, he asked me to go for a walk with him. Now anybody who knows me, knows that I am not a fan of being cold. However, Colin looked so excited that I decided to just suck it up and go with him to one of our favorite parks.

As cold as I was, it was a pretty place in the snow.

I think most of all the important thing is that we got to spend the time together. We also finished up our Christmas shopping and everything is wrapped. It is coming up fast this year. It is so nice to be able to enjoy the rest of the holiday just with family and friends. Over all we had a pretty stress-free season, which is nice. Last year ended up being last minuet!

We also decorated the tree the day after Thanksgiving:

My brother Michael had his first choir concert and I was so proud of him! He did an amazing job!

Took a selfie with some of my siblings 🙂

(Sorry the picture was fuzzy; I had my three year old brother in my lap)

So far the Christmas season is in full swing! How is your holiday preparations coming along?
