Hello lovely readers… April is here and spring is in full bloom, aggravating allergies everywhere. I am doing surprisingly well thanks to Zyrtec but still am feeling some symptoms, just not severe and I am very thankful for that.
As promised in my last entry, I have been very busy…
Last week in March – Christine & I shot a lovely wedding down in Galveston. Liz and David are a beautiful, fun couple (Aggies too! Whoop!) and we wish them the best! That was on a Sunday and the following Monday I headed to West Monroe, Louisiana for work. Trip went well and I got done what I needed to do.
Beginning of April – We flew out to our nation’s capitol, Washington, DC on Thursday, April 3rd. We had a great time visiting an old college friend of mine and his family (wife and 3 kids). He went to Texas A&M for graduate school as an exchange student from Paris and is currently living in Bethesda. They were gracious enough to open their home to us for six days and we really appreciated it. We took the metro daily into DC and explored the Mall, hit several museums, saw the cherry blossoms (which made me sneeze a lot) and most of the major monuments. We walked miles every day, exploring the city’s neighborhoods. We unfortunately never saw the sun – the weather stayed grey and overcast the entire time we were there – hardly getting above 50 F – and you can tell from my pictures. Sure glad I brought my scarf! We were typically out for over 12 hours each day so you can imagine how well we slept each night! We got back home last Tuesday and have been laying low since then.
I am still editing photos from the trip but below is a slideshow – new photos I add will show up in there.
This past weekend – We had no concrete plans and the weekend was pretty open which was a nice change of pace. We filled it with close friends and were able to catch up and really enjoy the time with them. Friday, Saturday and Sunday night was each spent with a different couple and it was really wonderful to just casually visit and chat. With my helter-skelter schedule lately we have been unable to do this and I was missing it.
The rest of April holds a few more business trips but then my travel for both work and pleasure should taper off by the end of May. I head to Dallas this week for work and I still need to hit Tucson and Austin in the upcoming weeks. And as always, I’ll have camera in hand…
