Mother’s Day in MD

Personal

I spent last weekend with my mom for mother’s day and thought I’d share some pictures from my time there. She lives in historic little Berlin, Maryland which is right outside of Ocean City, MD.

My mom has quite a green thumb and spends all of her free time in her glorious garden. She can tell you all about everything in there too. And it’s this ever changing thing – she is constantly replanting this and that. She tells me it’s already changed since I took these pics. Take a look…







We went into OC for a day to check out Springfest and the boardwalk. I was a complete glutton, eating my way through boardwalk fries with vinegar, ice cream, and an apple pie caramel apple. Ah, beach food…







It’s pretty awesome to have a mom who lives at the beach. I’ve been so far away the past few years that I haven’t been able to make good use of it. But you’d better believe that I’ll be there a lot more this summer now that I’m on the east coast!

“More than any other, this boardwalk brings back that exhilarating teenage sense of summer-vacation freedom and possibility. Throbbing with energy day and night, fueled by Thrasher’s fries soaked in vinegar (a true delicacy), the ‘walk’ features cool reversible benches that flip back and forth, depending on whether you want to gaze at the Atlantic Ocean or the passing parade along the boardwalk itself.”

This morning, the Supreme Court struck down keys parts of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the hundreds of benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.I keep my political opinions to myself when it comes to this blog but I feel that such a monumental ruling on LOVE has a special place here.My life is surrounded by love and weddings and it’s incredible. That we could even think of denying rights to gay couples is an atrocity. 12 states and DC offer marriages for all committed couples; ...

I've mentioned that I'll be moving back to Pennsylvania.  Well, the movers have taken all of my belongings and now the time has come for me to get on a plane early tomorrow morning so I can get to the east coast.I'll be spending some time in Ocean City, Maryland where my mom lives while I hunt for a place around the Philadelphia area.I'm nervous and excited to make this move.  I love the San Francisco Bay Area.  I absolutely love it here.  I love the people, the weather, the scenery, and so much more.  San Francisco has made me feel at home and I'll miss it incredibly as I fly over the bay tomorrow.The Philadelphia (Main Line) area is where I ...
