What a majestic place. If I lived in DC, I would come here to read and watch the ridiculous tourists (like current me).

Lincoln Memorial

Every time I visit the Lincoln Memorial, I can't help but image massive marble Lincoln getting up off his massive marble chair and walking outside to check out the reflecting pool.

DC Geocache

For a bit of extra fun while we were exploring downtown DC, we hit up a few of the "historic" geocaches on the mall. This cache was particularly crowded (due to proximity to the national Christmas tree) so we started a mini flash mob of tourist-photography while I snapped my documentation pics.

Hartnetts For The Holidays

Quality time with the fam in Delaware was the perfect opportunity for a mini-photoshoot (we may have a real, live, Hartnett-family-together Christmas card photo after all!)

Sister Sister

Isn't she lovely?

Mango Thyme Cocktails

Cary whipped up some delicious fridge-drinks (made exclusively of things already in the fridge) this afternoon

Tropical Holiday

Cary and I arrived in Naples early this morning (after a typical 3-4 hours of sleep on our red-eye) and immediately indulged in pool-side naps. I'm not a huge hot-weather fan, but chilling in tank tops and flip flops for a few days will definitely be a nice switch from our usual down jackets :)

Back In Black

Feeling in need of some classic blacks this season.

1. Plain black v-tee
2. Marble contrast top
3. Lace-back tank
4. Tiny hearts sweater

Backcountry Christmas Tree

This year, Cary and I started a new Christmas-y tradition: decorating a tree in the woods. We picked out a trail that we knew would be snowy & full of evergreens (not a hard ask in Washington) and packed in lights, ornaments, chairs, and all the makings for Christmas feast.

Alpental Ice Climbing

The ice is in early this year, so Cary & Colin celebrated with a trip to Alpental. We camped in the car the night before so the guys could get an early start (and I could snooze for a few extra hours). It ended up being super crowded by the time I rolled out of bed, and was only slightly awkward as I emerged from the trunk of the car in my PJs.
