I hope you guys had a good weekend, I feel like we got a lot done at our new micro-rental apartment and made some headway on the new focus in our life: the massive renovation of our Brookland home. Andy & I took Friday off to officially sell our Trinidad Rowhouse, make a quick trip to IKEA, and otherwise try and maximize & organize the 600 sq ft we now live in. Saturday was full of renovation planning & confirming, and friends’ BBQs and yesterday we celebrated Andy with breakfast, a massage, and some cuddle time. We leave for our family vacation in less than a week (how!? JUNE IS FLYING BY) and I am hoping to use some lake time to knock off a TON of things that have been sitting on my CapRo to-do list for weeks now.
For today, we have an adorable DC engagement session featuring the CUTEST dog named Penelope. Happy Monday Romancers.
From the bride: “Penelope is really, in every way, our dog-ter. We adopted her as a tiny two month-old pound puppy at Washington Animal Rescue League when we moved to the DC area. We had both spent many many years of wanting a dog — both separately and then as a couple. Penelope is incredibly gregarious in a way that we aren’t naturally so sometimes we’ll be walking down the street and a person we’ve never seen before will say “Hey Penelope!” like they are old friends. She meets most of these neighborhood friends when she’s on walks with her dogwalker, Kim.
Because she’s such an important part of our lives, it never occurred to us not to have her be part of the wedding and all that comes along with it. My plan is to send her around to all the tables to thank guests for coming so that I can focus on the dance party, but she may end up being more interested in the buffet!”
