I can’t resist color. I have to move towards it, have to reorient myself to be closer to things that are vibrant. My favorite part of living in DC is running through the Capital Hill district and seeing all the colors, all the bright doors and bold awnings. The already vivid architecture contrasts with the changing gardens and seasons an it soothes my soul against many of the things that I am struggling to love in this city. This is my favorite street. I like how all the houses were built at once, one continuous brick structure, and then each dwelling was divided by color, was set apart by a bold hue. I like to run by it at sunset and see the way the light floods this street, flowing the colors out of the alley. Whoever painted these houses realized that life is sweeter when lived in color.

Lately, on InstagramHoning her chameleon-like abilities to blend in with her surroundings. 🦌Also, the fact that I have many antlered things NOT in these pictures really showcases the depth of emotion I feel towards all members of the deer/elk/moose kingdom. Also also, one time in Sweden I ate a reindeer and it was exquisite. The end.I’m just a mom, standing three steps down in the stairwell, watching my son make Christmas cookies inside the apartment, willing this moment to last forever, and yet also willing naptime to come soon so I can dip those cookies in my coffee in peace. #mywholehome
