while josh’s parents were in town
we spent a good portion of christmas eve at mt. vernon.
i can’t believe all the history that surrounds us here in d.c.
i’m hoping we’re more proactive in 2011
at taking advantage of all the great things around us.
(mostly meaning all the free museums and monuments!)
i imagine mt. vernon will be gorgeous in the spring and summertime,
so hopefully we’ll be back!
and inside was the sweetest little ginger bread rendition of mt. vernon.
below is our winner!
congrats to shelby rad! please email me your contact info!
a few of our favorite highlights from this past year….
in april, our wedding photographer leo was in town so we snapped some photos at the cherry blossom festival (see here
last year around this time josh had said to me, “2010 is going to be our best year yet, naomi.” since last december had proven to be our hardest month yet, i was kind of skeptical and sad and wasn’t sure if he was saying that to just try and cheer me up. but i decided to believe him anyway and move forward with a positive attitude. fortunately, 2010 has proven to be a lovely year, the best part being we found out we are expecting! and now, 2011 promises to be even better with our first little baby due any day in the next few weeks! we are scared and nervous to become parents, but also feel really blessed that we’ve finally been given the opportunity and i cannot wait to share the new year with a new little baby!
happy new year everyone! may it be our best year yet, for everyone!
today, our sponsor gussy sews
is offering a $50 shop credit
the shop is full of ruffled accessories…
zipped pouches, wristlets, tote bags — even headbands!
in may, gussy quit her day job to sew
she has one of the cutest little handmade shops around,
and a cute little puppy too, named bauer.
