Some of my favorite things from July

On this last day of July I want to share some of my favorite things from this past month!!

The DC fireworks for the 4th are always amazing. But the DC area offers something 1 week later every year, and I think most people would agree that it’s even more enjoyable — the Alexandria Birthday Celebration! It always happens the weekend after the 4th, and with easier parking, a comfy lawn, manageable crowds, free cupcakes, and an up close and personal view while listening to the live music by the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra…well you almost just can’t even compare the 2. So I got to spend the evening in the company of some great friends. And made Key Lime White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cake Mix bars (what a title!).

Cherries. Seriously. So good. Picked these up at a farmer’s market and ate them all in a couple days.

Some people eat a lot of burgers off the grill in the summer, or maybe BBQ chicken…me? I’m eating loads of prosciutto. 🙂 this grilled cheese was such a winner. Yum yum yum. Egg, prosciutto and a little Gouda.

Seeing corporate office spaces I’ve designed be almost near completion! Love putting things on paper and seeing them come to life.

Conscious Boxes!! Seriously, this is like the best of all worlds for delivery boxes. There are some snacks, some beauty care, some nutrition, recipes, the best chocolate bars ever, and it’s all great for your body. I’m so glad I tried it out on a Living Social deal. I have 1 box left in my subscription and will be sad to see it be over!
