Victory in the front yard, too!

Blythe,

Your most recent post was cruel and unusual. Those photos! Those breads! Torture on a Monday morning! Sounds like a fantastic day. Add it to the list, and I'm still dying to hit the Brooklyn Flea Market!

A few weeks ago I told you about my backyard, now I want to fill you in on my front yard... a kinda new thing for me.

I've always known that Rock Creek Park was across the street, but for some reason in the FIVE YEARS that Jeff and I have lived in our apartment, we have not once ventured in. No good reason, we just never made it happen.

So Sunday we headed across Connecticut Ave for a little adventure. Here's what we found...

I can read this sign from my bedroom window!


Good to know.

The whole half mile trail looks like this. Amazing.

Awwwwwww! Do you think Jaime and Vicki are still together? Or is carving your names in a tree like getting a tattoo of your lover's name... the ultimate kiss of death.

The trail spits you out at a picnic area and the actual Rock Creek. Just lovely.

You know I've been craving nature for a while now, and I think the Gods are laughing at me considering it was across the street the whole time. I'm an idiot... but reformed. I think this lil' trail may be a new Sunday routine for us and I definitely want to do this, it's on my DC bucket list. So next time you're in DC, I'll take you on a hike!

xo,





PS... Have you seen the new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby? I'm so psyched!
