Moments that Matter: March 2014 Edition

Moments that Matter

The Chesapeake Bay region is a beautiful and captivating place to live. We’ve decided to share a glimpse of this with you every month in a new series called “Moments that Matter”. This series will give you an up close look at what life on the Chesapeake is all about. We will be featuring photos from our adventures, our family, and scenes from the Bay area. Hopefully this will give you a taste of what inspires us (and our food).

We’re kicking this series off with a look back at March- a month full of snow, snow, and more snow! In fact it will go down in the record books as our 5th snowiest March in history with at least one snow event every week, and a total of 19.8″ recorded at Dulles International Airport. Although March came in roaring like a lion, it went out more like a lamb (thankfully). We ended the month with milder temperatures and a little splash of sunshine- much to the liking of all Marylanders!

As the weather heats up and we are able to get outside, we look forward to sharing more “Moments that Matter” with you. This spring and summer will bring lots of crabbing, time spent on the Chesapeake Bay, gardening, sand covered beach days, picnics, farmer’s markets, and lots of other fun adventures!

We hope you enjoy this first edition of “Moments that Matter”, and we can’t wait to share more with you next month!

Under Armour Baltimore

Shaun and I had a date night in Baltimore this month at the Waterfront Kitchen in Fells Point. It had been raining all night, but when we left the restaurant the rain stopped and we captured this amazing view from across the harbor. That’s the Under Armour HQ in the distance.

    Your pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I especially love the pictures of the snowman and his disappearance. He’s quite a magician. Although I’m in Northern Virginia, you’ve encouraged me to cross the moat into Maryland! Thanks for sharing and for the great motivation!
