I have a cold. Spring colds are bleh I still managed to make the most of a beautiful weekend. It was filled with pink roses…organizing… bike rides… serendipity… new babies… wonderful friends…new spaces…nyquil…naps… amazing stories… game night.
Hope yours was just as wonderful!
So thankful for my Mama today and always. She is a remarkable woman who has loved me and each of my siblings through good times and bad. She loves with her whole heart and has taught me in a million different ways what it means to be a woman. I’ve always looked up to her and I always will.
It is officially my favorite time of year! The weather hasn’t yet reached the oppressive humidity of Summer in DC and the skies are bright blue and breezy. This weekend was gorgeous and because of that I tried to spend as much time outdoors as possible. It was so relaxing and full of spontaneous fun… meeting new people… yummy food and conversation with friends… ranunculous (one of my favorite flowers)… Eastern Market and the best pretzels ever… new accessories (hello coral!)… a grocery store opening complete with ginormous spotlights (we do it up right on H St. NE)… thought provoking questions… Good Stuff Burgers…amazing worship and time to meet amazing worship leaders from a number of different churches in the DC area… decisions (I have decided!)…dressing Cinderella for the ball… and some much needed couch time.
Hope your weekend was just as yummy!
This past weekend I discovered a new favorite place, Union Market.
I love the vibe. It’s totally cool ( enough to make me feel cooler than I actually am, just by walking around). The produce is fresh. The restaurants are fresher.There is ice cream to die for. (try the Peanut Butter)
In the midst of this wonderland I stumbled upon a lovely little shop called “Salt & Sundry“.
Granted, I realize I may be late to this party but I’m hoping it’s fashionably late. Just imagine me arriving with some fabulous
hors deove’res hors durves… actually scratch that… just imagine me being able to spell hors d’oeuvres (thank you spell check) and arriving with glitter. That’s probably more likely anyways. I can’t spell OR make whore durvs.
Ok… where was I? Oh right… Salt & Sundry! They are amazing! Such a fun store, chocked full of local yumminess, beautiful items that you can imagine were curated with much thoughtfulness and taste that again makes me feel that much cooler just by being in it’s presence. Since I believe a picture is worth a thousand words (unless of course it’s your Senior Project paper. Take my word for it, professors don’t always appreciate pictures and 20pt Comic Sans) here’s a few shots I took during my recent visit.
I would definitely suggest you check it out for yourself!
Spring has finally sprung in DC and we celebrated by having our first BBQ. There’s nothing like the smell of charcoal to make it truly feel like the last strains of winter are behind us. This weekend was full of sunshine… neighborhood explorations… yummy brunch (this is DC after all)… long chats… dreaming about the future… birthday celebrations… roomie adventures… random pictures in front of walls… margaritas & fish tacos…wonderful community…chick flicks… and new favorite spots (I want to move into Union Market)
Hope your weekend was just as wonderful!
