Happy Friday everyone – and happy first day of Fall!  But seriously, how is it almost the end of September already?  Time is seriously starting to fly!  Do you all have interesting plans for this weekend?  My agenda this weekend is happily low key; hanging out with friends, a few fun errands, and a movie with the husband.  My favorite kind of weekend.  But in the meantime…

Happy Friday everyone!  Did you have a good week?  Fall is definitely in the air this weekend, but I’m actually looking forward to the new season – spring and fall are my two favorite seasons in DC!  This weekend I’m looking forward to the Design Sponge book party in Georgetown, a neighborhood festival near my Capitol Hill ‘hood, and some antiquing with my husband and in-laws, who are visiting again this weekend.  But in the meantime…

The week following a holiday weekend always flies by, doesn’t it?  I can’t believe it’s Friday already!  Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes, blog anniversary congratulations, and all around positive vibes this week!  We’ve had nonstop rain here in DC and much of the East Coast, so I’m planning to spend the weekend curled up indoors with a good book and maybe a movie or two.  But in the meantime…
