Montrose Park Family Photos {The Vilquin Family}

Montrose Park is a new location for me and I must thank the Vilquin family (repeatedly) for introducing me to it.  I adore exploring new areas. On bright summer mornings.  With fun families.  Charlotte's blue striped dress and braided hair were perfectly precious.  When she began collecting rocks and bringing them to me, that's it, she won me over :)

Oh, and did I mention that Charlotte's dad is French?  He said my name with a French accent and I am seriously considering a trip to France now.

Are you in DC and currently seeking a personal chef to make life a little easier?  My good friend Courtney has recently launched her business for folks in NW DC looking to make life a little simpler and healthier.  I can speak from first hand experience that she has incredible skills in the kitchen.  I ate every last bite of food she sent me home with --- and found myself wishing for more.  She really has a way of making healthy food extra delicious!

A tiny look into their early-summer garden growing in the backyard.  I hear they had a great turnout of herbs and veggies!

DACOR Bacon House Wedding {Sara & Tom}

Sara and Tom were married at the DACOR Bacon House in NW Washington, DC on June 27, 2015.  It was an exquisite affair with their friends and family in a historical location.  If you remember the weekend before the 4th of July, you remember it rained and rained!  Despite the crazy weather, Sara and Tom enjoyed a gorgeous wedding day with terrific company, hilarious toasts, and incredible food.  What a lovely evening to remember!

Congratulations again Sara & Tom!
