What a fun weekend! DC had gorgeous weather (which is VERY unusual for 4th of July – it’s usually brutally hot) and Matt and I took full advantage. On Friday morning, I got in a nice run – 5 super hilly miles – and then Matt and I parked ourselves at our apartment pool for the day. That evening, we watched the DC Fireworks via kayak Continue Reading …

We had the most beautiful weather in DC over the weekend – cool but super sunny – the type of days made for playing outside.

You know what I’m loving lately? “Everything but the kitchen sink” breakfast egg scrambles.
