This post about leaving DC and journeying west to our new home in Seattle has been a long time coming. I can't believe we've been here almost a month. Leaving DC, our home of almost three years, was hard. Not because we wanted to stay- not because we didn't want... Continue reading

Tomorrow, Valentine's Day 2015, we start our cross country journey to our new home in Seattle. A budget truck, our new car, a special needs dachshund, an ornery cat, my sister/cousin, Jared and I. 39 hours of driving time, roughly 2700 miles. *The Plan* The first day- Johnson City, TN>Columbia,...

I could say so many negative things about the Cherry Blossom Festival- the tourists, the trash, the disrespect to the beautiful, old trees, or how we've decided to never go again.. But I want to say this more- the weather on Sunday was perfect, that shade of Cherry Blossom pink... Continue reading

Hello again! Saturday morning, hipsters from all over the city descended onto Florida Ave. for District Flea's 2014 opening day. They rode in on vintage/repurposed bicycles, eco-friendly cars, and, of course, Keds. The walk from the U Street metro station was sunny and blustery and the sight of blooming daffodils...

I'm awfully late writing this post, as the DC Pride Parade was a few weeks ago! But with the latest victory against DOMA and NY Pride this weekend, I think it's a good time to finally attempt to put the glittery, confetti-filled event into words. We got to Dupont Circle... Continue reading

Last weekend, almost completely outfitted in Hello Holiday, Jared and I drove into Virginia to visit the Angelika Mosaic movie theater to see The Bling Ring (which was the perfect Summer movie- light, intelligently crafted, and very entertaining). We had brunch at Matchbox and walked the aisles of, perhaps, the... Continue reading

It really takes alot out of a girl. And her boy. And their fluffy-babies. However, I'm hoping to maintain a solid... Continue reading

Sunday morning, we travelled to Capitol Hill to stroll through Eastern Market. We grabbed a doughnut (the friggin best doughnut in the world) and coffee from Sweet Treats and picked through the fun stuffs in the flea market. Afterwards, we walked over to Capitol Hill Books- one of the loveliest... Continue reading

Two weeks ago, Jared and I attended the European Union Embassy Open House, in which any one could tour the various embassies. The day started with the best intentions that were brutally interrupted by a sick cat (and thus, this post is two weeks overdue). After taking Lou (our orange... Continue reading

Hello, dears! It's been a little while since last I wrote a thing down; this has been mostly due to a sick kitty-cat and also to my birthday (and family in town) this past week. Friday afternoon, with my mom and best friend, Nikki, in tow- we kicked off my... Continue reading

Wednesday night was my and the husband's third wedding anniversary. Time has flown by, yet I feel as though I've known him my whole life. I'm so lucky to have such an amazing partner in all of our adventures. We started the evening at Ted's (it fit the 1920's theme,... Continue reading

Yesterday morning, I had the distinct pleasure of being one of 250 people to meet Michelle Obama and receive her autographed book. Last week, I waited in line for three hours in order to gain entrance and security clearance for the event at Politics & Prose Bookstore. It was so... Continue reading

Saturday was PassportDC, officially known as a cultural event to celebrate international diplomacy. To the people that attend, it is more of an opportunity to drink/eat free food and to see the inside of the embassies around the city. And it is FUN. We started off the day at Dupont...

A week ago, I had my seventh MRI. Not terribly fun or helpful, as the root of my chronic pain has still not been found. The other day, I had an interview for a job I would just about maybe/sort of/definitely kill for. I dressed nicely, in my new cardigan... Continue reading

On Sunday, we dressed our best and took the train to Dupont Circle for a tour of the Phillips Collection and a walk around the neighborhood. The Phillips is a beautiful museum (that used to be the home of a very wealthy family) that houses paintings from various artists, including... Continue reading

We woke up late today, made coffee, and slowly got ready to go to lunch at Comet Ping Pong. Comet Ping Pong is a really fun restaurant that, as your probably guessed, is comet and ping pong themed. The tables are painted like ping pong tables and for 50 cents... Continue reading

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of our move to DC. To celebrate, we headed downtown for coffee at Chinatown Coffee Company (delicious!) and to Washington's favorite movie theater, E Street Cinema, to see Breakfast at Tiffany's. While, it was one of the hardest years for me personally, in many... Continue reading

Everyone has bad days. Sometimes it's because of simple things like CVS losing your prescription or your dentist telling you that you're going to have to get adult braces (sigh). Other times it can be more serious; an impending medical exam, family melodrama, or a sick cat. Can you tell... Continue reading

The past week, we walked to two memorials we haven't visited before; the Martin Luther King Jr. and the Titanic memorials. Last Wednesday, we met with a local photographer we both admire for a possible project we're going to work on together and we really hope it happens! We met... Continue reading

On any given day in DC, there is bound to be a cultural event taking place somewhere. On Saturday, there were 3 (at least) and they were all taking place simultaneously, within a block of each other. We of course went to all three. And yes, we were EXHAUSTED afterwards.... Continue reading

You knew this was coming, right? Yes, this is a very heavy picture post of the cherry blossoms. We visited the famous Yoshino cherry trees at the Tidal Basin last Saturday for a little picnic and then again when they reached the infamous 'peak bloom' on Tuesday. And yes, it... Continue reading
