Ahhh. Is there anything better than having a Monday off? Alex and I are basking in the glow of our three day weekend and are finishing up a few odds and ends around our home. Hint. One major New Year's Resolution is being checked off as we speak. Any guesses?

On this holiday, we'd like to take a moment to honor our country's Commanders-in-Chief, and at 1:00 will be attending the annual Alexandria Presidents' Day Parade. We'll be sharing photos of the event as well as other local sites that catch our eye. We hope you'll come along for the ride!

hysterical giggles re the street sweepers following the horses.

Thanks for the kilts. Pictures of Marines are always appreciated as well. (mom of one, you know. Oddly, a Marine who also rocks a kilt on occasion.)
