foto week dc | instagram exhibit

The past 2 years I've been indulging myself in the instant gratification of iphoneography. I love that it's all about seeing and observing your world around you without the homework (uploading, culling, edits, etc). It's an instant moment and a visual journal for me.

FotoWeek DC hosted an instagram contest and these images of mine below were selected to be exhibited at FotoWeekCentral at The Warner Building. If you're in the area, stop in and take a look. They will be up through Sunday November 18, 11-6pm daily. I, unfortunately, won't be able to see it so if you go snap a pic for me!

café indigo | sperryville, virginia

Nestled in at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains is the charming small town of Sperryville. Though small, this town packs a punch -- a handful of fantastic dining options, progressive minded artisans and picturesque scenery. This time of year being one of my favorites, fall, when the leaves catch fire and add colorful texture to the mountains.
Café Indigo can be found in the River District Arts building and is serving brunch and dinner on the weekends. It's super cozy and a perfect "Sunday" in my mind. After walking through the 12 or so artist studios you enter the restaurant which is showing off more local art, with hanging textile art, the tables where you sit (made by Antique Tables Made Daily) to the coffee creamer cups and of course the food. Supporting local food. Yup, these guys are good. Beautifully renovated and recently under new management this is a promising stop on your Blue Ridge outing.
Thank you guys for having me out and feeding me well. :)

a moment | autumn begins

I agree with Dorothy Parker, autumn is fantastic. I'm loving all the little hints of fall beginning to take over summer. It's a beautiful time of year in here in Virginia, hope everyone can take a moment to get out and enjoy it!

You got this Steph. Make it count. Love to you and good luck tomorrow!

UPDATE: Steph is officially an ironman! 12:33 time. Absolutely awesome.

tracey+will | a virginia engagement

I'm so grateful that people allow me into their lives and homes. It's such an honor.
I met up with Will and Tracey at their gorgeous country home; met their new pup and spent the afternoon wondering and laughing. I love these two -- they are so fun, don't take themselves too seriously and so incredibly loving to each other. Life is sweet and their home shows it. 

Thank you guys for a fantastic afternoon -- so excited for your wedding this fall!

a moment.

I love these moments.

I'm (very slowly) reorganizing my filing and websites which means going through all my old files (yikes!). It's been fun revisiting old gems like this one.
