#MonthOfJoy Photo Challenge: Days 11 through 20

For the entire month of May, my friends over at VanFullFun challenged their Twitter followers to post a photo a day about something that brings them joy. Participants tagged their photos with the hashtag: #MonthOfJoy. Y’all know how much I love a good photo challenge, so there wasn’t a question about my participation. :P  For those of you not on social media (*cough* mom), I’ve shared my posts below. I’ve broken this up into three different posts so that it is easier to digest. Enjoy! #MonthOfJoy Days 11 through 20 As the month progressed, I focused on finding joy in my...

Hike 10 of 52 – Greenbrier State Park Trails

Early this morning, Hubs and I set off on an hour drive to Maryland so that we could hike a loop on the Greenbrier State Park trails. We arrived at the park about 20 minutes before it opened and were greeted with a line of fishermen waiting outside the gate. We jumped in line and made our way in when the park staff arrived. As out-of-state visitors, we had to pay a $5 entrance fee, which is reasonable for the various amenities and trails. Of course, after the early morning drive, we stopped to use the facilities and parked near the boat...

Hike 9 of 52 – Hemlock Overlook Regional Park Trails

There are few outdoorsy things that my husband loves more than a good rain hike. I swear, for a dude who grew up in the desert, this guy is slightly obsessed with a hike in the pouring rain. So, we set out yesterday in the rain to complete Hike 9 in my 52 Hike Challenge. We created a loop hike by combing sections of the Yellow, Blue, and Gray Trails in Hemlock Overlook Regional Park in Clifton, Virginia. We hiked a total of 3.07 miles between hiking the trails and exploring the riverbank, dam ruin, and island areas. After...

A Review of Anatolian Bistro in Herndon, Virginia

A few days ago, we made plans with friends to meet up at Worldgate Center in Herndon, Virginia.  Our plan was to grab dinner at TurCuisine, a well-known local Turkish restaurant. When we arrived, however, we were surprised to find that the restaurant had closed. After checking out their recent Yelp reviews, it looks like service had gone way downhill since our last visit. Obviously, we had not been there in a while! Out with the Old, In with the New While we were disappointed that our original plans were foiled, we were in luck! A new restaurant called Anatolian Bistro...
