brooklyn flea comes to dc!

what a beautiful weekend here in dc! i spent most of my time outside... from flea markets, to rooftop bars, to shopping in georgetown. one of the highlights was a visit to the brooklyn flea market...that's right the brooklyn flea market! for the next few saturdays the market will be right here in dc (you can click here to find out more details!). my friend, meredith, and i went to check it out and ended up walking away with quite a few goodies which means i just might have to go back next weekend too!

summer wrap up.

'summertime sadness' is a good way to sum up my summer. with more than one significant loss in my life, this summer is a chapter that i am ready to move forward from. despite these struggles i have (somehow) come to know a stronger version of myself. a self that i already thought was pretty strong. i also came to find that there was still some joy to be found within the sadness. so i thought i would focus this post on those joyous moments from the summer...
so i can let the less joyous moments fade into the distance.

jazz in the garden
screen on the green... i went 2 weeks in a row!

playing soccer on the national mall
  (fyi...i've kinnda wanted to do this since i moved here!)
a quick trip to nyc!
a visit to the shore!
i was lucky enough to spend the last weekend of summer in the hamptons with some of my best friends from here in dc! not a bad way to round out the summer!
