birthday treats

i just want to take a moment to say how lovely kath is, especially on birthdays and other assorted days of celebration. this year she sent me a box of cookies in all shapes- including snails, porcupines, clouds, and H-A-P-P-Y- B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y- i love this girl.

on sunday the celebration continued with a long walked that included stops at the Capitol and the library of congress. i do not know if there is any other building in this world as beautiful as the library of congress...or at least the interiors. there was so much to look at and so much smooth marble to feel....i can't wait to go back and get into the reading room.

i am on week five of my new life in d.c. and am still living with matt. while i love living with him, i am very excited for the day when i get to move into my own apartment and decorate the hell out of it. every time i see beautifully styled images of apartments and houses in magazines and on fellow bloggers' sites, my heart skips a beat and i can't help but go into a little day dream about book stacking, chalkboard paint, white dishes, and my boxes back in michigan waiting to be delivered and unpacked in my new apartment.
