I can’t explain how special it was to be back in Washington DC
with sweet babe Rea. Chase & I fell in love while living in this city
as Senate interns in college, and we used to dream about our future on
the steps of the Lincoln. Coming back with our little girl made us all
kinds of nostalgic and mostly made me so grateful for Chase and our
life together. He has made every dream I had back then come true.
I love him, our babe, and this city with my whole entire heart!
It was the cherry on top of an amazing week in Virginia.
We took far too many pictures, because it was just too special and sweet.
We reminisced so much and marveled thinking if our younger selves
could have seen us with this darling baby girl and all we’ve been lucky
to do. Returning to old familiar places is so great because it allows
you to see how you yourself have changed, which is always important!
This city is magic on its own, so add in our memories and it’s just one
of the best. It is so beautiful and full of amazing history + happenings.
We stayed in Georgetown and just took it slow walking all of the
monuments, eating at our old favorite spots, seeing some friends,
and loving having baby Reagan along for all of it. So so sweet!
We had to show her the White House before it is potentially
painted gold… haha! (And while someone nice still lives inside ;)
Reagan meets Washington ^^
Silly biking photo-bombers! ^^
Love my girl.
Snoozing while strolling the monuments ^^
And, awake! She didn’t want to miss the sights.
Sorry for the maaaany monument pictures, but it was
just such a picturesque afternoon in such pretty places!! This trip we did something new — a tour of Fox News studios
where our friend Nefi works! We met Chris Wallace, who just
moderated the final presidential debate. He was so cute with baby!
^^ Dinner at our FAVORITE RESTAURANT ON EARTH.
I had to say it in all caps because it’s true. Founding Farmers.
So good it hurts that we don’t live nearby. It was so hard to choose
off the amazing menu, but we did cornbread, chicken & waffles, and
the cedar plank salmon. All so delicious, and a fun date night together!
Of course we had to stop into the Google DC office…
we have been to over 30 Google offices now so Chase
loves adding to his count :) Bonus that we got to meet
Curt for lunch there and I saw some old coworkers too!
Chaia tacos for lunch in Georgetown…but
this place deserves another post coming soon :)
Another night we saw our good friend Pete who lives in DC!
We missed Sarah who was out of town, but so good to catch up.Passing the Jefferson on our drive ^^
Stunning Capitol Hill ^^ the best views and neighborhood!Capitol Hill, our old intern stomping grounds!
^^ She thinks politics are a little boring I guess ;)
I hope one day she interns here too! Best experience.
Bundled bebe ^^
As always in DC, we did lots and lots of walking!
And lots and lots of reminiscing.
Goodbye DC, can’t wait to keep coming back forever and ever.
Fun to have Reagan fly out of Reagan National!
