First, I would like to apologize for not posting Day 8 or 9 separately. Our hotel WiFi the past few days would not allow me to upload photos, so it was nearly impossible to blog. Thankfully, though this hotel also has bad WiFi, it had enough juice to let me upload pictures from the past […]

Greece Day 8, 9, & 10: Delphi, Eretria, and Olympia

Today was our first day of the road trip we’re taking around Greece. It definitely did not disappoint. We had a gorgeous day with chilly wind, but no rain – for which I am always grateful. We started the day at a Monastery just outside of Greece. It dates back to the Byzantine period but […]

Greece Day 7 – on the road

Yesterday, we got to see the Byzantine Church walk, and the museum of archeology. We got to experience the Athens metro, which was pretty much your average metro. After enjoying a large lunch of souvlaki, the group split in groups of people who wanted to stick around and visit the flea market. I was feeling […]

Greece Day 5 & 6

Today we woke up to rain, which unfortunately did not let up the entire day. We took a bus to Brauron where we saw the museum of the temple of Artemis. The actual site associated with the museum was closed due to flooding. After seeing the museum and driving by the flooded site, we visited […]

Greece Day 4: Cool things to see and cold weather

Today we woke up to a rainy morning and headed out to the Acropolis museum. We arrived shortly before it opened, so the group enjoyed the enthusiastic bell ringing of a neighboring church, the noises of traffic, and the panoramic views that Athens has to offer at every location. The acropolis museum is partially no […]

Greece Day 3: The Acropolis!

Today we got up early and headed over to the Greek Agora, the Roman Agora, and then saw the city market. It was really beautiful and packed with history. I learned that Agora is pronounced Ah Gore Ah rather than the way agora is pronounced in agoraphobia. There’s your fun fact for the day. The […]

Greece Day 2: The Agora and Market

Today was my first full day in Greece. My journey started Monday evening flying from DC to London, and then London to Athens. Thankfully, though both flights were delayed, everything went very smoothly. Today we had an orientation session with the school who is hosting us for the first 7 days of the trip, we […]

Greece Trip Day 1

This summer I had the opportunity to take a Zumba class with my mom. If you can make working out fun? I’ll try it. No promises though. Cardio is usually… how do I put it… Terrible.   So this was kind of a last ditch effort to have fun and be healthy. I found Zumba […]

Zumba with Karen

This past spring I met this wonderful couple and worked with them on their engagement photos. This past weekend was their wedding and it was everything I thought it would be and more! Christen tied in her color theme or pink, gold, and shades of rose gold in beautifully. I am enjoying editing their photos […]

Whaley Wedding – Sneak Peek!

One of my good friends at Hollins University, also named Mary, is pregnant and she offered me the great privilege of taking her maternity photos. She is such a beautiful mother and wife. She and her husband were so sweet to work with and we shared lots of laughs on a sweltering and humid Sunday […]
