About Stacy

Hi, my name is Stacy, and I’m so glad you’re here because that means you have an interest in Great Escapes!

We all have a means of obtaining freedom from worry, care, or unpleasantness. My favorite escapes are dancing, reading an amazing love story, watching a funny movie, cooking delicious meals, and traveling. I enjoy making my home warm and comfortable for my family and guests! And I pour my heart and soul into celebrating life with memorable parties!

I also have so much fun taking pictures of my family during their escapes! I encourage you to try something new each day: Listen to a new song, read a new book, watch a new movie, cook a new recipe, or travel to a new city. We are not guaranteed tomorrow so start today!

Double rainbow over the Chesapeake Bay!  It is rare that you see a complete rainbow!  I really wish that I had a wide angel lense but these are the best pictures I could get with mine!

Our Easter playdate was fun!  I grilled vegetables and chicken plus made a delicious salad!  The kids ate cold cuts and hot dogs plus Annie bunny snack mix, grahams, and macaroni and cheese.  I also served mini-sliders filled with cheddar cheese and mango chutney.  The Carvel bunny cake was Anna’s favorite!  We did a bunny craft and hunted Easter eggs.  It was a beautiful spring day:-)  Thanks to my friend, Shannon, for taking this picture of Lila and I!

Anna and Lila performed in their winter play called the Seven Little Penguins.  Anna was a polar bear and Lila was a snow friend.  Lila danced to “Snow Day” from “Fresh Beat Band”.  And Anna danced to “Cool in the Cold” from “Club Penguin”.  I would like to thank everyone who gave their time and talent for our children!  It was an awesome family night:-)

Swan, Power Animal, Symbol of Inner Grace, Balance, Commitment 
"The swans gracefully glide through the water leaving hardly a ripple behind. Their natural, effortless beauty reminds us to move gently through the currents of life and not fight against them."  I captured this photo on my iphone during a morning run.  Every single time that I see a swan, I get excited!
