When we did our pre-marital counseling last spring, our mentor couple told us that we would be lucky to find “couple friends,” you know, friends where we both like both of them equally. James and I feel so blessed that we have several couple friends here in DC. We feel especially happy to be besties with this couple. Not a week goes by that we don’t have dinner with them, or watch movies, or play games, and James and I feel a little lost if a weekend comes around and they are out of town. When Stephen and Leslie told me that they were engaged, I promptly burst into tears. I am so excited to share some of their engagement pictures today, and I am sharing way too many because I just love these two so much. Can’t wait for October!!!

Lately, on InstagramA moment of tranquil outfit coordinating perfection, before snow got in his boot and he started yelling “WHY IS THE SNOW HURTING ME???” Because Winter is a bad romance kid. Also: to all you parents who had childcare cancelled for snow and now you are getting crazy eyes trying to figure out how to fit a full work day into nap time- I SEE YOU.That magical winter moment when you wake up and find the whole world changed while you slept. Before the snow is dirty, before you realize the hassle of slick roads and buried cars and cancellations, before snow gets in your boots and freezes that patch of skin between your glove and sleeve. Just the wonder at the world made white.
