a month ago i celebrated my twenty-second birthday with a few close friends. i love gossip girl (it was my weekly television staple in high school–blair and chuck, anyone???!) and i decided to combine my love of upper east side fashion and rooftops and throw a champagne brunch in downtown dc. we sat on the point of view terrace at the w hotel and talked about…life. life in the city, life as graduate students, life with each other. i’m blessed to have seen another year (+one month now), and this post is dedicated to those who made my day (and year) so special. this year has been quite an adventure (i may just have to write a book about it ;)), and i’m so thankful to have spent it with people i love. between all our laughter and the view from above, everything was perfect.
thanks to my friend mark for taking this photo of me! =)
& then i took some of him…
here’s one of all of us from that day, courtesy of our waitress =)
