What a little tease this weekend was, right? I took Evie on a nice long walk on Saturday, sans coat, and we played, OUTDOORS, at a playground down on The Hill. In February. But I’ve been here long enough to know that DC’s winter is far from over. We all know we’ll be getting a snow storm in March. However, I’ll take Saturday’s weather whenever I can get it, and revel in the fact that Spring will be here before we know it. Today’s engagement session has me feeling all the Spring vibes too (short dresses! Tulips!). And minus this is it a cold or is it allergies, crap I have been dealing with since last week, I really can’t wait for Spring. But for now, I’ll enjoy this session:
DC will always have a special place in our hearts; it is where we first met and where our relationship took off. With every weekend neighborhood excursion, we fell more in love with the District as we did with each other. DC became the home of our relationship so it seemed only fitting for it to be the site of our engagement session and future wedding. Besides, DC is so pretty! So much to see and explore!
We met on match.com and our first date was at The Codmother on U Street. Sohie wasn’t particularly excited about it and arranged a back up plan with her sister in case the date didn’t go well. But six hours later, the conversation was still flowing, spilling over from dinner to desserts and drinks. We spoke of food, family, our travels, our career goals; our values. It wasn’t love at first sight but the connection was instant and strong and we knew we had something special.
