first trip to the georgia aquarium

Our Christmas present to our nephew Myer from me and Matt was a trip to the aquarium. We had a great time with him! I think he enjoyed seeing all the "fishies." Here are some photos of the trip:


my nephew's portrait

Someone drew this beautiful pencil drawing of my nephew Myer. Isn't it amazing? And look at his photo -- such an angel! That was take on his first day of preschool. :-)


what women really look like working out

I absolutely love this video called This Girl Can! by Sport England, a organization that invests in groups and projects to encourage people to play sports.

It shows women of all sizes working out, showing what normal women really look like. Because it's not this. The CEO made this video because "worries about being judged for being the wrong size, not fit enough and not skilled enough came up time and again."


my trip to baltimore

The weekend after Christmas I went to Baltimore for my cousin's wedding. It was really a wedding reception, because he actually eloped a year ago in Vegas. He and his wife wanted to have a party at the bar where they met. Two of my mom's siblings live in Maryland, so we got to see them too. It was a great time! Here are some photos of the trip. The house in the photo was where Frederick Douglas grew up, and that water is the Chesapeake Bay. And my uncle dressed at Santa. :-)
