DC Bound

It's been over 15 years since I've been to the Capital, so I am super excited for my return on Wednesday!!!

I'm very fortunate to be crossing the border for a non-profit conference for a bit of career development (gotta love how conferences count as education)!  I'm looking forward to learning practical tips from industry insiders, hearing inspirational stories about groundbreaking campaigns, and meeting other people who have a passion for making a difference.

I'll also be visiting one of my oldest and dearest friends from Orlando (and she so kindly offered me her couch for the duration of my stay).  She finally made the big move out of the Sunshine State to DC and has been living the big city life ever since!  I'm utterly delighted to catch up with an old bestie, get a tour of her favorite places, and wander the streets of Georgetown (with a must-needed trip to Kennedy hotspots...)!

Cobbled streets, famous monuments, and stories to keep me inspired for the next year ahead..... here I come!

If you have any must-sees or must-dos, please share!

Funny Face Inspired

Somehow the first month of 2013 has already come and gone and we find ourselves breaking resolutions (my personal resolution to kick my coffee habit was quickly broken....), longing for the brighter and warmer days of spring (how dreadfully teasing it is to see all the spring lines out in stores), and making plans for Valentine's Day (or not...).

Funny Face is one of my favorite movies.  With its incredibly vivid colors, demand that we all "think pink," and Audrey Hepburn at her ballerina best, it's a constant source of inspiration (and perfectly appropriate around Valentine's Day):

Here's to thinking pink in February!
