1. "The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you."

  2. Football season (and fantasy football season) are nearly upon us. Eli is so excited he doesn’t know what to do with his face, or hands, or body. 

  3. Did so much blissful nothing this weekend 
Went to goodwill, bought a bunch of jars, finally made it to body pump (ouch), ate my weight in Korean BBQ, gave the pup a bath (she was not thrilled), tried out two new coffee places in our neighborhood - Three-Fifty and The Wydown - ate many scones, had an early bird date night at Raku and practiced calligraphy. Points on the board for August being quiet and awesome.

  7. run, don’t walk, to this salad

    Per Mallory’s recommendation I made this Spring Chopped Salad for lunch today and good gracious it is tasty. There’s plenty of veggies in it (and you can add more!) but there is also salami, which I’m now convinced should be in all salads. Go forth, eat, enjoy.

  8. Another great summer weekend in the books!

    Friday was for a big Shabbat dinner with friends following by dancing at El Centro. Saturday morning we drove up to St. Michaels, MD for Kim & Andrew’s wedding! The whole event was beautiful - very sweet vows, amazing food and lots of personal touches. We kept the Bill Murrays flowing and danced until they said it was time to go home. Sunday was for a quick drive home, stocking up on groceries and cleaning the WHOLE apartment. 

    The weekend was ridiculously fun, surprisingly productive and full of celebrations for two incredible people who are incredibly perfect for each another.
