on tuesday night we celebrated five years of marriage by having dinner at againn and dessert at hill country bbq (for me) and pitango (for him). we talked a lot about what we’ve done with the last five years and what we look forward to and want out of the next five. i love this man, a lot. i’m thankful for his support and love and that he’s the one i get to spend forever with. here’s to the next five years…and all the years after that.

    Hi Naomi,
    I've been following your blog for a few years. I went to school at GWU and then got a horrible entry-level job in Crystal City. Your blog helped with the down time and I've been following ever since!
    I travel around the world now (I'm in Asia for now) and it's always nice to see your posts and be reminded of home.

    I've had my own blog for four or five years and I'm trying to get a real jump on it. I was hoping you could take a look and let me know what you think!


    I'm sorry I'm one of the many followers that reads and never comments. Hopefully I can be more engaging. Thanks!

    P.S. Naomi, your dress is FAB. And your hair, even FAB-er. :)

  41. Hello! If it's not late,.don't hesitate to visit Firenze and Perugia, small but lovely, and Firenze, even better than Rome, not that.crowed. Smalls villages in Toscana, are beautiful, and Sicily…Italy is nice and their food…just ask and try everything you can and please, in principal cities don't forget to try ice creams from Il GROM. Ask for the season flavour and add PANNA. Is homemade icecreams and white.cream, just a piece of heaven to taste! Have a.good.trip and enjoy.
