Biking at the Fort!

This past weekend, Daniel and Iย finally went biking. We’ve been meaning to go for months and got the opportunity to get outside this Saturday!

Sunset Date Night!

Last night, Daniel and I used a Groupon he received as a gift to go on the American Rover for a 2 hour sunset cruise from Norfolk’s Waterside. The weather was absolutely perfect and there was barely a cloud in the sky. We wrapped up the night with getting dessert at Toast (we ordered a Tres Leches) and watched some Orange is the New Black until we passed out.

Also, happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, hope your Sunday is as relaxing as mine has been! Upcoming for my week: more lab work, seeing Weezer and Panic! at the Disco, potentially seeing Joywave, seeing my nephew, and a birthday celebration.
