Hello! How was your weekend? Mine went from Nashville to Baltimore to DC to Nashville. Lots of planes and trains.
On Friday we arrived in Charm City to meet up with Alanna and Milad! They were in town for a few hours and somehow escaped the camera so our precious time together will somehow go undocumented. In exchange, here’s a throwback pic of Alanna and me from 2007… BFFs.
Alanna was kind enough to let us stay at her place for the night. Anthony and I explored Hampden, a cute little neighborhood not far from where I went to college.Hampden is really happening these days! We strolled over to a new brewery to kick off the weekend.Up next was Grano, a cute little pasta bar that was full of sizzling pasta dishes and smoky tomato scents. But first: salad! I figured we should eat something green for the day.Then we watched our pasta chef cook our noodles and sauces over an open flame. Yum. Cheese plz.
We called it an early night and were up bright and early on Saturday to catch the train to DC! First item on our to-do list was a run with Anne and her husband Matt!The four of us headed out for a quick five miles along the Custis trail. Anne and I used to run together about every week when I lived in DC — I miss her! Good seeing you, Anne!After our run, I jogged straight over to Northside Social to have coffee and talk running + blogging with Brae, mastermind of the ZOOMA women’s race series. So fun catching up with her!Fast forward through a power nap and it was party time.The main event of the weekend was our friends’ wedding! Anthony’s friend Victor put a ring on it this past Saturday with the lovely Lauren. Look at this cute couple!The ceremony and reception as held at the Larz Anderson House, a beautiful historic DC home full of regal decor fit for an American the Downton Abbey family. Here’s me with Larz himself:
And here is us reunited with some old friends!
The food, music, and dancing at Lauren and Victor’s wedding was fabulous. And of course I shed a tear or two during the speeches because I’m a crybaby!Or maybe I’m a turkey. Can’t tell.
Congrats to the happy couple! Now I’ve got to go back to reality and tackle my Monday to-do list. See you tomorrow.
