On Friday evening, I had some company to celebrate the Royal Wedding, serving homemade scones and more chocolate biscuits!
I also served Salade Lyonnaise and we drank sparkling wine in celebration!
I also played a little dress-up, trying to put together fun outfits that are work appropriate. My job requires more formal wear (not prom-like of course) than previous positions. I don't want to wear suits all the time, so I am trying to create interesting business (or close-to-business) outfits.
Saturday I strolled through the streets of Old Town Alexandria (trying to avoid the tourist-infested downtown DC). The houses there are GORGEOUS in their historic state, so prettily painted and landscaped. I think I may have to move there at some point. The weather was magically sunny and my walk proved to be quite a lovely experience.
I grew giddy when I saw these old-fashioned street lamps that were burning candles (or at least, that's what they looked like) - so emblematic of the historic South.
