Calm Before the Storm

Happy Frankenstorm! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that everyone is staying safe. I am still debating whether or not I want to go into work until 8pm tonight....

On Saturday, before the hurricane barreled into town and closed every workplace except my own, I had a fabulous time with my little sister who rode the bus down to DC from PA. It was a short visit, but we packed a full day of hiking, shopping, and attempting to marble our nails a la Pinterest.

The closest I got...

We started out the day hiking and enjoying the peak of the foliage at Burke Lake Park. 

And by hiking, I mean leisurely walking around the lake, stopping every two feet for photos/glamour shots, and waving spiderwebs out of our faces.

It's what we do best.


  1. I'm currently waiting for the hurricane to roll in. I'm glad you toughed out the storm.

  2. I've seen the marble nail polish before. It's pretty but looks difficult. I'm not sure if I want to attempt it or not! Hope you stayed safe during the storm!


  3. What beautiful pics in the woods, Brenda! I hope you're staying safe in the storms! ;-)

  4. Brenda, I really love your hair in a turban-like headband. Glad you got to see your little sis..she's so cute. I can see you directing her in the photos...ok now look up at the leaves...hold it, hold it, snap, ok got it. Hahaha. I hate cobwebs in my face...happens all of the time. I carry a stick through the woods and wave it in front of me to break them up. Otherwise, I'd freak out. Have a great day! dawn suitcase vignettes xo
