Those mornings when you wake up early - on a snow day - and spot a few other souls already out exploring. ❄️❤️ I feel an odd connection to those kindred spirits who think of a snow day not as a free pass to sleep in & stay warm inside, but to get up & outside as quickly & for as long as possible, while the powder is still fresh & untouched. ✨

Happy Anniversary to my Bae, the wonderful & complicated city that is DC! 😘 8 years ago today, I moved into an English basement in Logan Circle that had no heat & I had no furniture. @dianamillay & I wore as many layers of clothes as we could & huddled together under blankets on an air mattress for warmth. But we’d just spent a week confined in a mini van, driving across the country from California, so we walked to the basement at @saint.ex.dc to dance away the cold & cabin fever. I moved here without a plan & without expectations. Just the promise of a fresh start & the hope for something better for myself. BEST. DECISION. EVER. This is the now the longest I’ve ever continuously lived in one city & it continues to surprise & inspire me on a daily basis...love you DC, you are home through & through! ❤️

When you’re out for a walk & notice a few tell-tale gold onion domes peeking through the trees...and stumble upon a beautiful Russian Orthodox Church. It might be new to me, but this gem has been in the Crestwood neighborhood since 1958.
