Labor of Love on a Berry Nice Day!

What a fun day at Crooked Run Orchard in Purcellville, Va.!


Where the kids learn fruit and veggies don't always have to come from the  grocery store but right from the ground, vines or trees.


We worked for our blackberries, asian pears and apples on this Labor Day and we won't forget it!

Sandy Storm Supplies

We turned what could have been a mundane, yet important story into something fun.


Reporting on anticipating hurricanes and storm preps can be predictable.  But an ordinary story can be extra-ordinary when you're working with a talented photographer.


Thanks Chip Baysden!!

Baby Graham Oak Ya Long Lucie

D.O.B. February 4, 2012 @ 2:34 a.m.

 7 lbs. 10 oz.



Graham Oak Lucie

His Chinese middle name is Ya Long which means second dragon after dad being the first dragon.


The Lucies are doing very well after a very scary entry into the world.


Mom had to be admitted to Reston emergency hospital because of a ruptured artery in the placenta/membrane and what doctors believed to be an extremely rare umbilical cord complication called velamentous cord insertion.



After losing a lot of blood, mom had to have an emergency c-section.

We are more amazed that Graham is with us today because on top of the bizarre complication, doctors discovered I had 2 placentas. The meaning behind this is that I may have had a 'vanishing twin.'


But now mommy and baby Graham are doing well!
