A Weekend in The District

The past few days have been a wonderful whirlwind. Like I told a friend last night, "I just do not think feeling rested is in the cards for us right now, so we may as well have fun!" And this weekend was plenty of fun, indeed.

First of all, I love the city of DC. I have visited a good bit in recent years and it never ceases to amaze.

Second of all, having the whole family in one place (despite the fact that I am perpetually 9th wheel these days….) is always a recipe for a great time.

Of course, I cannot leave out the purpose of the whole gathering, which was the wedding of my cousin Carlton and Ian!

The wedding was lovely, but the entire weekend was planned to perfection. This Bloody Mary bar at brunch pretty much sums up how pristine and delicious every meal tasted.

Our best friends in the entire world now live in DC, and any time spent with the Campbell clan is time well spent.

Just a few snaps never sum up the hilarious moments, meaningful conversations, and precious time spent together. Here is a mix of pictures that try to capture little tidbits like my 89 year old grandmother's killer dance moves or last minute DC purchases like Jonny's British socks.

I feel full and rejuvenated after the weekend in DC!

Fall is Finally Here...

The breezes are finally getting cooler and the leaves are starting to turn every hue of the sunset, but it has strangely felt like Fall for a while. With the kids coming to school at the start of August, it felt like I said goodbye to summer so long ago. So it seems only fitting that it finally feels like fall. The busyness of fall certainly set in a long time ago. I am glad the weather and football has finally made its way into my life.

After work today, my mom and I stumbled upon a cute little apple festival going on at the local farmers market. And this fun photo booth was a part of it.

Another perk of fall that I absolutely adore is wearing flannels. Last night was my (actually it was Rita's…) debut flannel wearing for the season. And this adorable puppy is another thing I adore.

Happy Fall!
