on the spanish steps.

we like taking walks.

we like looking at all the cozy houses and classic architecture of the old rowhomes, and walking along the tree-lined streets is so quaint and comforting.

and we've always liked walking on embassy row and sitting on the spanish steps near embassy row, but now i think they mean a little more to us.


see that? TH popped the question! and when i say popped, i mean totally surprised me to the point that i couldn't even say a word. so i nodded and finally the word "yes" escaped out of my mouth somehow.

and to celebrate we walked to adams morgan and shared the world's biggest banana split at The Diner. and stayed up way too late walking around the streets of dc and talking about all kinds of exciting things to come.

we're both so so excited and couldn't be happier to share the news!
