josh and i have been talking and talking and talking for ages about going back and visiting dc since we moved away last august. but like with most things on our to-do list, there really is never any time to actually do those things we really *want* to do. we went back and forth all last week about when to go and calendar something, but by friday we decided to just go. friday. just do it.  because otherwise, when?! you know? and so, we packed up the kids in the car friday night. (we prefer starting all road trips after 9pm because then the babes are asleep for the ride and we get 3 or 4 hours of time to just talk, uninterrupted, which is one of my favorite things to do with josh. and i mean, when do you get that kind of time to just talk these days?! it felt like a date. i’m calling it a date.)

we had a great time seeing old friends, meeting new beautiful babies, visiting the hill and eating all of our favorite food (the dc food scene will always rival the nyc food scene in my book. you can’t argue with me on that one because i am stubborn and also, because dc has 2Amys. end of discussion.)

DC, WE LOVE YOU.

  1. It must be so nice to visit your old city and catch up with everyone. The buildings are amazing! I thought San Francisco had incredible architecture – this is almost as good!

    I love the photograph of E taking notes, haha! And I absolutely love your jacket! So nice. I wish they shipped to the UK, too! x

  2. DC looks like the cutest town!Really want to go there, I still have so many cities to visit in USA! It looks really kids friendly too! You should maybe write a post with your fav spots, restaurants, museum…

    What’s your top 3 cities in the States?

    Looks like you were lucky with the weather too!

    Love your happy camper sweater, saw that on pinterest, it’s very Portland OR! :)

    Have a great long week end @Taza!!!

    You are too young to think about becoming a mother-in-law :)

    Oh wow the smile on Samson’s face when he’s next to the new baby just melts my heart

    um, yeah. it was definitely a date. :) and i’m so glad you guys just picked up and left! sometimes that’s just what you need to do.

    2amy’s has now made it to my bucket list, thank you!

    speaking of which, i know that you’ve mentioned some of your family is in utah; if you ever make it this way again you need to try pizzaria 712. jus’ sayin….

    also, where did you get your blue skinnies with the zippers at the bottom? i used to have some like that but they got worn out. i miss those little retro zippers….

  7. I love DC so, so much! I’ve been a handful of times and can’t wait to plan a trip there with my husband. He has never been. I dream of living in one of those brick homes…

    I’ve seen the same pair of jeans in all of your italy photos and in other blog posts. I was wondering what brand/style they are!

    I second the shoe question! Where are those cute pink/nude patent leather oxfords from? Been looking for a similar pair. Thanks!

  11. Patricia

    Love your blog.. have to know, where is your coat from? It is beautiful!

    That pizza and gelato look delicious! E’s little pigtails are adorable, and those flower pots are beautiful. Looks like a fun weekend trip!
