In Residence at The Jefferson

My husband and I treated ourselves to a little staycation a couple of weeks ago at The Jefferson, a five star boutique hotel in the heart of Washington, D.C. Besides the stellar accommodations and service, the place has loads of sentimental value to us since we got married there in 2013.  Since then, we have tried to stay there at least once a year, particularly around the holidays when all of the pretty Christmas decorations are up.

I have to admit that I was just as excited to see the fashion, and of course, the hats that guests would be wearing, as the horses (because let’s be honest, millinery opportunities are few and far between these days unless you’re a member of the Royal Family) .  Read More »

Last night hubby and I headed over to Eric Ziebold’s brand new restaurant, Métier (translation: “occupation” or “craft”) which opened a few days ago in the Mount Vernon Square neighborhood.
