Flea Market Magic and Georgetown Corners

20170514_155256
Georgetown is one of my favorite places in Washington DC. If you’ve followed me for a bit, you already knew this. I wrote about it here and here and here. It is quaint, vibrant …and while M street offers (to my delight) a more European shopping and dining experience, with its street cafes, restaurant gardens, and boutiques, the part I enjoy the most is wandering about tree-lined streets in a more residential area, admiring brownstones, colors of facades, flower boxes and beds, and the old cobble stone.  Continue reading

April Mood Board

As I look through the window, wind is blowing, it is over cast and rain is imminent. I feel fully ready for stable, sunny and warm late spring – early summer. Dinners outside, sandals and shorts, balmy evening walks in the neighborhood and day trips (where my photos will turn out great, since it is sunny). No, I do not mind the notorious DC humidity, nor mosquitoes and bugs – just sun, please.

Spring hike around Havre de Grace, Maryland and some business ideas that came to mind

Time spent in nature is good for the soul. It brings out the best in us. Tensions melt and energy levels go up. At least, this is how it is for this family.

A personal quest for a better sleep

So I put it under Inspirations – as it might provide some new ideas for those interested. Considering that SLEEP has been on my mind a lot lately, and that more the one friend told me about their sleep issues, I thought I’d share some thoughts on the subject and seek your feedback and insights…

Mood Board – April 1

Wow, what a month! We’ve had warmth and sun and snow and rain and wind. Moody March has been true to its reputation. The snow destroyed some cherry blossom buds, but we still enjoyed the trees in bloom. Kids love metro. A bit of art and architecture, always yummy food. My boys’ favorite Air and Space museum. Friends over for some wine and cheese. My BoConcept armchair got a side kick – a colorful pouf for my feet. Now reading corner is complete. And did I ever mention how much I love shoes. Pictures below.

A Tale of Cherry blossoms in the City

cropped-p3250211.jpg
When I think of Washington DC, my current home, some associations come up: great museums (that are mostly free),  cool ethnic restaurants, my favorite neighborhood – Georgetown (or gorgeous town, as my friend Diana would say), favorite corners in Dupont circle (where I spent most of my early days in the city, some fifteen years ago), important buildings I admire (I wrote about the architecture of the U.S. Capitol and Library of Congress here). Then there are cherry blossoms on the Tidal Basin and around Jefferson Memorial.
