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 InstagramWhen faced with a door, his new thing is to bang on it repeatedly as he yells, “I’M KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR!” Further proof that, as our babysitter put it, “Henry just feels every emotion more intensely than other kids.” 😂Also proof that his musical education is coming along nicely.Please tell me you are likewise incapable of orchard restraint and come home with obscene amounts of fruit you can’t eat fast enough. And then tell me what I should do with all these apples. Bonus points for savory/paleo options and don’t even try suggesting that I can anything. #nothappening
