Washington, D.C. ~ The United States Capitol, home of the United States Congress. Located at: East Capitol St NE & First St SE, Washington, DC 20004. Whenever I think of the legislative system, I can’t help but hearing the Schoolhouse Rock song, I’m Just a Bill (1975).
Waxahachie, TX ~ The historic MKT Depot is located at 501 S. Rogers St. Waxahachie, TX 75165. Restoration was completed in 2010. Prior to that the depot was a stop on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT) rail line until 1964, primarily hauling cotton to local markets. Boyce Feed Store is located across the street from the depot. The feed store sells what you would expect (animal feed), but also has very cute shabby chic home decor and country ready clothing.
Waxahachie, TX ~ The Ellis County Courthouse is located at 109 S. Jackson St, Waxahachie, TX 75165. This historic structure has been fully restored and is operational. You’ll need to visit in person to see the amazing architectural details, such as the gargoyles, carved faces on the columns, and granite stone at the base. If you stop by during the day you can even take a free tour. * These photos were taken in the winter of 2017.
Washington, D.C. ~ Captured these beauties while strolling through D.C., mainly around the national mall and monuments. I was fortunate to have visited at the beginning of the spring bloom. Also very lucky to have had perfect weather. Overall, it was a perfect visit!
Ann Arbor, MI ~ University of Michigan has to be one of my husband’s favorite places to visit. He earned his undergraduate degree there, and has many fond memories. He recently visited the campus, and took a trip down memory lane (and left a message for posterity). I wanted to share this thought of the day for all those students who can’t yet see the light at the end of the tunnel. “Enjoy every moment of the struggle.” -Dr. Mario […]
San Antonio, TX ~ San Antonio Shoe (SAS) Factory, 101 New Laredo Hwy, San Antonio, TX 78211. These photos were taken in 2010, so these cars may or may not still be located on site. SAS is a family owned shoe retailer. We stopped by for the old-timey cars!
Waxahachie, TX ~ One of my favorite places to be! The people are nice, the stores are unique, and there is history at every turn. Each building has an original style and most are very well maintained. Anyone who loves antiquing should consider a weekend visit.

New York, NY ~ While visiting NYC we stayed at Chelsea Pines Inn on W 14th St., which we highly recommend. Directly across the street is the Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church at St. Bernard’s. Capturing the full scope of a large building in a tight city street isn’t easy, but I thought this one was worth a try. We also had a chance to catch a game at Citi Field. Unbeknownst to me, I was sporing the opposing […]
Montréal, Canada ~ The first photo in this series is of our hotel room at Parc Suites Hotel, 3463 Park Ave, Montreal, QC H2X 2H6, Canada (parcsuites.com). I’m sure there are fancier, newer places to stay nearby, but we greatly enjoyed this particular hotel because of the homely feel of the rooms and friendliness of the staff. You feel like you are staying in your own downtown apartment. From this location we were able to walk in all directions, exploring […]
