elsewhere and here

Do you know that we used to live in this cute and oh-so-Eastcoastish house in Germantown, Maryland, in this supernice neighborhood with reeeaaally cool neighbors?!

Bet you did not, at least not the neighbor part.
I'd like to introduce you to one of my former neighbors: Lena is smart, beautiful and cool, a runner, has two gorgeous and sweet kids and happens to own my favorite Italian restaurant Agrodolce in Germantown (with husband Phil). Lena just recently started a new journey in her life, she launched a blog and wants to get professional with her art of taking pictures, especially portraits.
Friends, check out her fantastic work, here on Flickr, read her blog and if you can, go have her take some awesome shots of you, the family, your kids, you and the love of your life, you name it!

Here, today?
Working the ass on the trails, snowflurries my company, again.
Coffee with friends in the morning.
Gathering stuff for the class, beginner knitting tomorrow morning.

Watching winter wrestle with spring. The day that started with snowfall ended with warm sun.

I am eying my trees, I have all that I wanted now, the Jonagold being my favorite, because it is my favorite apple! None are planted yet, and I am keeping my fingers crossed.


  1. Spring seems to be winning the batlle here in Boston. This makes me so happy. Your friend's pictures are lovely.

  2. I so need to get my ass back on the trails before the universe goes completely off balance! But (and it's a big but!), I'm trading a sock-knitting lesson for lunch today and I still have some 'real' work to do. Can't wait to see you tomorrow. We'll have to firm up a time. Have fun teaching your class!

  3. I'm sick of winter here in NW New Mexico, too. I've started a healthy eating plan, joined in a CSA and am starting my walking routine. Now we have wind in the forecast, of

    Wish we had a LYS or anything here in Aztec. I have to go to Durango and that's just too far so I'm a Ravelry addict and am loving knitting passion!

    So glad I found your blog through Farmama's blog.
