Hi friends! I’m back in DC and getting back into the swing of a busy workweek. I kicked off the week on an endorphin high yesterday by dragging myself out of bed for a 6 a.m. CrossFit class, and this morning I was up and out for a run with my friend Ashley!

I love summer weekends so much. Even though DC gets really grossly hot and humid (especially by August) I love that everyone is out and about and there’s so much to do. A June Saturday is so much better than a February Saturday, just sayin’. The weather was warm but nice on Friday, so Matt and I decided to mix things up and treat ourselves to Continue Reading …
