On our April road trip we saw the Gulf coast for the first time in Mississippi, at dusk. At first, I was sad it wasn’t daylight. However, after looking at a few of my shots on the camera, I realized this lighting was way better anyway!

Road Trip 2013 – Pink Heals Tour, Nashville
This is my personal favorite group of pictures from our entire trip. Not based on their quality or content as much as how much this part of this particular day meant to me. We were spending time on Broadway in Nashville, just to walk around and look at souvenirs and such. As we headed back to the car we came across a pink fire truck. Of course, the color pink always means I need a picture. We turned the corner and the entire street was lined with pink emergency vehicles. All of these vehicles were covered in signatures, notes and messages. Alex, being the shy person he is (Not) went up and asked a lady what the trucks were all about. They are called “The Pink Heals Tour” and are touring the country raising money and awareness for women’s health in general, not just cancer.
As some may know, I lost my Grammy to breast cancer last fall. We asked if I could sign her name on the trucks and of course they said yes.
We miss you Grammy!
Road Trip 2013 – Nashville Zoo part 2

Road Trip 2013 – Nashville Zoo part 1
Our first day in Nashville we started off by going to the Nashville Zoo. Of course I took a ton of pictures. Enough that I am going to split them between two posts.
We started off our day with a Starbucks stop of course. (Remember I said I took a picture of all of them?)
Macchiatto is ready to head to the Zoo!
We left from Kingston, TN for Nashville early. About 15 minutes west of Kingston you pass the timezone. So it turned out to be a 2 hour drive into Nashville.
Nashville Newsie? ( I currently work for a local paper and can’t even get away from papers on vacation… they are everywhere!)
Alex as we headed into the park. This was only his second Zoo and the first that had this many different animals, so he was very excited.
I am a sucker for flowers. Found a lot of cute flowers throughout the trip!
Lorakeets Exhibit. We were able to walk right into this exhibit and feed the lorakeets nectar from little cups. Alex loved interacting with them and I enjoyed being close enough to get good pictures! This exhibit also made me wish my dad could have come, he would have loved all the different birds we got to see, especially these! Hope you like the pictures Daddy!
I will post the rest of the Zoo pictures very soon! In the meantime you can subscribe to the blog or follow my facebook page to stay updated about my posts!

Road Trip 2013 – Julie’s Wedding Ceremony
My friend Julie’s Wedding was so beautiful and so much fun! Her and her husband John are so cute together! Julie and I met on a 6-week tour with the Continental Singers in the summer of 2005. In that time we became good friends and have kept it touch since then off and on. I was so honored that she invited me to her wedding after not seeing her for almost 8 years! It was a great way to reunite as well as witness such a special day in her life!
Congratulations again John & Julie!
A bit blurry, but I thought it was cute, so i’m posting it anyway!
LOVE this photo! They wrote their vows, John’s are the picture above and this was Julie’s “scroll” as she called it!
Next up are the Reception Photos!
Road Trip 2013 – Fort Southwest Point, Kingston, TN
After we arrived in Kingston, TN we decided to check out the town a little. I was surprised we weren’t ready to just go straight to bed after such a long drive, but we weren’t. So after checking in to our hotel, we just drove around for a little while. It is a beautiful town and we came across Fort Southwest Point. It was technically closed, but we walked around a bit anyways for a few pictures….
Next up is Julie’s Wedding photos!!!!
Trip to Boston in February
I made a spur of the moment trip to Boston yesterday just for fun. Ending up not getting a whole lot of pictures simply because I got extremely cold and tired faster then I thought I would. However, it defiantly inspired me to go again when it is warmer and with a little more planing involved.
