Two weekends ago we made a trip down to Charlottesville to celebrate Patrick and Anna's engagement and Anna's safe return from Haiti. Though it was last minute, the rest of my family (minus Susie Q) also made the 8 hour drive up to partake in the festivities. We spent much of the weekend sitting around Anna's kitchen table, snacking on granola, talking and pouring over pictures from Haiti. On Saturday we hopped across the street (literally) for a big engagement bash with what seemed like the rest of the C-Ville community. There are a lot of people that love those two!
Now to bring this back to the present....I think I may have mentioned that DC was hit last night with 2 ft of snow!!!! and it is still piling on. They are saying it is the biggest snow in 100 years and perhaps will be the biggest snow ever. Whoever said that moving from Montana to DC was going to be a big adjustment? So far, with three big snows this winter, I can say that my favorite part about it is the fact that it has given us a chance to meet many of our neighbors. Whenever it snows, everyone finds their way outside whether it is to sled down the oliver st. alleyway or to shovel their driveway. We even had a neighbor glide by on her cross country skis.
This morning, after downing some banana spice muffins and trader joe's coffee, Adam and I bundled up and headed out to join in the fun.
