When was the last time you went to a museum? I live in DC and I rarely go. I think I might have ptsd from being forced to go to museums as a child...a family vacation wasn't complete unless it was jam-packed with educational material. 📚✏️

The portrait gallery is my favorite museum in DC 🖼 It's a little off the beaten path, just a few blocks from the National Mall. Of course it includes classic portraits from American history 🇺🇸but they throw in some pop culture ones too! My favorite is a wall-to-wall portrait of Katy Perry dressed like a cupcake.

PS - Mom, I'm actually really thankful you forced me to go to all those museums 🤗 @mslauratx .

All this rain is making me wish for sunny☀️☀️days and picnics in the park.🌿🌸What’s your favorite park in DC?

What's your go-to coffee order? I'm usually an almond milk latte or dark roast kind of gal. ☕️Lattes are definitely more photogenic but I seriously love me some drip coffee #classy
_
ALSO...and this is important...Does anyone else get nervous to order at a coffee shop? 😬Half the time there's no menu, the baristas are way trendier than you, and like what even is a cortado anyway...

What I did this weekend 👇🏼
1. Strolled through Meridian Hill Park and discovered this incredible building which turns out to be the old French embassy. Doesn't it look like it's in Paris?! #luckytoliveinDC
_
2. Checked out @coladashop and had their mango iced tea...did you know they have an amazing rooftop garden?!🌿🌸swipe👉right for a sneak peak
_
3. Did some product photography for clients and spent hours editing in @lightroom 📷
_
4. About to go help my sister move to Petworth! That's one neighborhood I'd love to spend more time in. Any good restaurant or coffee shop recs?? 🥐☕️ Hit me up!

I’m going to yoga tonight and at the beginning of every class, the teacher asks us to set an intention. Usually my intention is “MAKE IT OUT OF THIS CLASS ALIVE” (I’ve never been very flexible)🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️
_
But today, I aim to simply enjoy the moment I’m in. I have a tendency to be in the future state: thinking about work, my to-do list, what I’m going to make for dinner, and even what I’m going to post on instagram next. 🤦🏼‍♀️ WHO CAN RELATE?
_
This is a public reminder for myself to SLOW. DOWN. There's nowhere I need to go, no place I need to be, except here, exactly as I am.
_
Namaste y'all. 🙏🏼✌🏼

3 FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
_
1️⃣ I grew up going to an all girl's summer camp in rural Texas and it was one of the best experiences of my life! s/o to @rockyriverranch
_
2️⃣ I'm obsessed with true crime murder mysteries. If you're into this, I recommend watching The Keepers, Making a Murderer, and listening to the Serial podcast.
_
3️⃣ I have synesthesia. Wikipedia defines this as a phenomenon in which the stimulation of one sense leads to an involuntary experience of a second sense....in other words, I see sounds! 🔈👀

Aristotle said, we are what we repeatedly do. If that’s the case, I’m just a crazy person who takes photos of strangers’ homes. BUT IT’S NOT MY FAULT THAT MY CITY IS SO GRAMMABLE, OK? #doitforthegram #luckytoliveindc

The thing about DC is that there’s this whole other world beyond what you see in the news. An underground of creatives, a culture of brunch aficionados, thousands of career employees who’ve served decades under changing administrations.
_
At its core, DC is just a small town filled with musicians, families, dreamers, artists, professionals, activists, but most of all community.
_
I find that the longer I live here, the more attached to it I get. I'm so lucky to call this place my home. #theotherdc #weoutherelivin ✌️✌🏻✌🏾✌🏿

I rarely order cocktails. I'm more of a wine kind of gal: red and as dry as possible 🍷
.
But there's something fun about ordering a cocktail every once in a while...plus it makes me feel like I'm in an episode of mad men 👔👗
.
This is a Belle's Peach from @succotashrestaurant - what's your go-to cocktail?

wednesdays in the district = cocktails in the district 🍸
.
I feel like this place should constantly play soft jazz and have a dress code that consists of Miss Fisher’s outfits from Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries

DC homies - have you tried @succotashrestaurant yet?

Over the weekend, I started watching Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and @jerryseinfeld said something that took me aback at first. He said that happiness is a "foolish thing to pursue." At first I was like..."Come on, Jerry! What is this life about if not happiness?"
.
But actually, I think he's right. All we can do is strive to have more moments of joy in our lives, in the hopes that it will make us happiER. The idea of true happiness is unattainable and perhaps the sooner we recognize that, it will free us from our own perfectionist expectation.
.
PS if you're a comedian and thinking of getting in a car to get some coffee, might I suggest @thewydown at @theapollodc? 👆🏼
