link it up [life lately]

I haven't been linking up lately, which means I haven't been sharing our fun weekend plans and memories (and there have been a lot!). Since my last linkup, we have:

Hosted a cozy night with friends for the start of the blizzard

Dug ourselves out of 3+ feet of snow in DC

Visited my favorites, D&R, for little P's first birthday (I die)

Spent a long weekend in San Francisco (which meant visiting the SF botanical gardens, catching several Fuqua friends, checking out the Japanese tea garden, and eating and drinking everything fabulous, including Bourbon & Branch in the private room and the tasting menu at The Progress, YUM)

Seen an opera (Lost in the Stars, based on Cry, the Beloved Country) at the Kennedy Center

Hosted my brother and sister-in-law for a weekend (and finally tried Rose's Luxury, the best new restaurant in America 2014 from Bon Appetit)

Got myself up to Napa for a gorgeous week

And around DC, we've tackled our resolution to explore more of our city by visiting the botanical gardens (been there plenty of times,  but there are always new things growing!)

Checking out the Natural History Museum (dinos are deep-sea were awesome)

Taking a hike in Great Falls (on the Maryland side)

Seeing the declaration of independence, bill of rights, constitution, and magna carter at the national  archives (way cooler and more powerful than D and I expected)

Visiting the Portrait Gallery and National Gallery of Art (so modern! the presidents are the best)

And catching an outdoor art installation on its last day

The coolest part? We WALKED to all of these museums (except natural history and portrait gallery, which are in Chinatown rather than on the mall).

Don't worry, we spent plenty of time resting, too. On to March.
