Eat, Drink and be Married!

Our engagement season has been such a sweet time already--filled with well wishes, cards and gifts.  I never dreamed of receiving such an outpouring of love from family and friends.

My sweet DC girlfriends did not waste any time in getting a little shindig together to celebrate our engagement--and I had such a good time relaxing, eating good food and soaking up time with some of my favorite people in the city.


A huge thanks to Archer and Henry for hosting and to Henry for grilling our dinner!


Laine, me, Mary Mitchell



Oh, these two.  They are just the best.  My dear roomies!
Lee, me, Holly


Archer, Betsy, me, Carolyn and Mary Mitchell


Laine and I had to use our fingers to count the years, but this is our seventh summer in DC together!


Constance blew us all away with her mouthwateringly delectable black and white creme brulee.
Y'all.  I'll take five more helpings, please!


Look who showed up too!  Matthew had just arrived in DC so he came over to wish me well.


It was a special evening and one I will never forget.  I'm thankful for these friends!
