sarah + finn come to town…

our good friends sarah and finn came to visit us in dc this past weekend. they make for a pretty adorable couple, right? the three of us went to juilliard together. in fact, i was reminding them over dinner last night about how i witnessed one of their first conversations in the juilliard lobby after class. i was the awkward third wheel who just didn’t get that i should keep walking and give them some space. haha. i’m pretty sure i stood there for an entire 20 minutes waiting for them to wrap up their conversation so sarah and i could continue to make our way back to the dorm. awkward.
anyway, eleanor is such a fan of them both so she was in heaven their entire visit. thanks again for coming, friends! we are already missing you.

strawberry picking.

a few days ago, eleanor and i went strawberry picking with our friends carissa and rinah. we picked some of the most beautiful and ripe strawberries i’ve had. and despite our efforts, eleanor maybe sampled every strawberry in the field by taking a bite out of it. oops!
i had big ideas of what i wanted to make with these strawberries, but somehow, one big bowl-full at a time, they’ve been disappearing from our fridge much faster than anticipated. thanks for coming with, friends! we love your company.
