I'm still recovering from the explosion of awesomeness that was two of my teen cousins staying with me in DC for five days. Sally and Zoe are about to be juniors in high school - how is this possible?! How is it that just yesterday I was their age, sneaking around with boys at the beach while they toddled around, and now they're young women buying books I already own, making uterus jokes, and ready to take on the world? My hearts bursts endlessly around these gals, and I feel so very lucky to have them in my life. We were laughing - and sweating! - too much to bother with many pictures, but here are a few.

Now that I've bid adieu to the girls, I'm off to finish my month in Texas and New Mexico with some of my long-lost besties. July is making me so happy. Exhausted, but really, really happy.


  1. I hear you on the exhausted but happy July, I'm totally wiped too! As a fellow DC-ite, where was the first picture taken?

  2. Hi Cara! That's an installation on the Contemporary floor of the American Art Museum (inside the National Portrait Gallery). It's actually a fantastic piece - each state is represented by televisions showing clips embodying a tongue-in-cheek representation of it.

  3. Thank you for sharing this article, this is nice one…. I like it a lot and Hope others might like it as well.


C'mon, make my day...
