the last few days of summer

soak it up while you can. 
kate and i spent most of sunday walking around capitol heights, eastern market and the national mall. it was hot and sticky and frankly i loved it. the past two months i have spent a considerable amount of time indoors avoiding the summer heat and humidity and now that it is almost over i feel like i missed out. every season has its fair share of complaints...too hot, too cold, too rainy, my allergies are miserable....the list goes on. but avoiding the season all together, is not the best way to deal.
 with fall in the near future, i plan to enjoy the last few days of summer (in dc, we will probably have a few more weeks of heat).

the coolest dog in eastern market. yes, those are doggles.

my annual crab cake at "market lunch" in eastern market. so satisfying.

i turned 28 last week.

to me, birthdays are more symbolic than new year's eve and day.
another year down, a reason to celebrate and reflect...and even make resolutions.
reflecting on this past year, 
 i am thankful for all the good that came to me during my 27th year.

a new job, new friends, and stronger relationships with the ones i already have...
i said goodbye to my childhood home
and hello to a new one
i celebrated the wedding of a dear friend
and celebrated five years with my partner and love
i enjoyed a marvelous fall.
winter and spring.
a good year indeed...

i am looking forward to a great fall, winter, spring and summer at 28....
