2018 in 12 Pictures

Happy Friday friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and your 2019 is off to a fabulous start!

I always feel energized and inspired in the new year, and this year is no different.

I'm pumped for 2019and am hoping to keep the blog flow going!

Last year, you may remember I posted 2017 in 12 Pictures. It was a fun way to recap the year and I thought I'd do it again this year.

2018 was one for the books, so let's jump right in!

JANUARY
We had a quiet, dry January, which I'm repeating again this year! 
I tricked myself into thinking I was drinking cocktails by serving my La Croix 
with lime in a fancy glass!

FEBRUARY
I hosted my third Valentine making party and made these 
cookie dough rice krispie treats which are always a big hit!

MARCH
We enjoyed a beautiful Sunday with the cutest
little Easter Bunny I've ever seen!

APRIL
I landed my dream job and had Bryce do a shoot of me for a 
major life update post with workwear picks...that never happened...
These shoes, though, (on sale!) you need them for work, and play!

MAY
We enjoyed a bountiful peony season!
It is such a treat having our yard filled with peonies passed down from both our grandparents.

JUNE
We celebrated our first wedding anniversary! We started the day with brunch at
Portico, then made our way to Tuckahoe Plantation to walk the gardens and reminisce,
and finally enjoyed wedding cake and our wedding video!

JULY
We made our way to Bryce's hunt club for a couples weekend.
Millie was a happy marsh dog!

AUGUST
We "holidayed" in London and the Cotswolds and it was an incredible week! So hard to choose a
favorite, but Stonehenge left me wonderstruck and was a highlight. So grateful to our London hosts, Erin and Ryan.

SEPTEMBER
We made our way to Washington, D.C. for a day date that started at Le Diplomate
and ended at Jiffy Lube Live to see Van Morrison!

OCTOBER
I partnered with Serena & Lily to set what might be my prettiest tablescape yet.
Full post here.

NOVEMBER
Wow, what a month November was! I had such a hard time choosing just one photo:
Turkey Trot, hosting our first Thanksgiving, and turning 30! 30 won out...I celebrated all
month long, and it sure was fun!

DECEMBER
The most magical (12") snow came right in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle
and provided just the respite we needed! And boy, snow is even more beautiful at Christmastime!

Wow, 2018 sure was good to me!

I can't wait to see what 2019 has in store, and will be posting deeper reflections and my word of the year next week. Last year's word of the year in this post.

What are the highlights from your year?

Have a great weekend!

  1. A. Any day in DC that starts with Le Diplomate is a great day!! Ending with Van Morrison is even better! I wish I'd gone to that show!
    B. That jumpsuit in your November pic is AMAZING.

    Happy 2019!

  4. LOVE SPELL TESTIMONY

    Thank you so much DOCTOR ODUNGA for making my ex boyfriend come back to me. I am writing this wonderful testimony in respect of this man. He made all my wishes come true. My boyfriend and i dated for more than 3 years and although we had had so many quarrels but we never thought of a break up. One day, he called me over the phone telling me how he is tired of the relationship and cannot see anywhere that we are heading to. Months have passed and my boyfriend did not contact me anymore and i did not hear from him anymore and his cell phone was disconnected. I knew i need to seek for help because of the so much love i have for him. I contacted this great spell caster because i have never contacted anyone before and i tell you that after a week of contact, my ex boyfriend called me and asked to see me and the next morning, he wore a ring on my finger. I am very happy because i am soon going to be a married girl with the help of this great spell caster. I promised to manifest your works to everyone and please contact this man to help you at

  8. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
