Mercury Summer Stock 2012

I'm so excited to share my latest collaboration with Pierre and Brian at Mercury Summer Stock. This year we came up with the show posters, a promotional brochure, and a new logo that better reflects the creativity of this truly unique community theater co. The amount of talent and enthusiasm that goes into each of their productions is an inspiration to me. If you'd like to learn more about MSS, check out their site here. I just hope we get the chance to be back in town for a show this Summer - break a leg guys!

OH and I want to see one of these Backstage parties.. for myself! ; )

Spring 2012

Hard to believe we've been in DC a little over year now, it sort of feels like we just got here. I'm still trying to figure out my way around the place! The seasons changing, as always, helps to give you a little perspective on things, horizons and prospects seem to be brightening all around. Hope it's finding you well too!

Now if we could just find a place to get a decent mojito...!

Spencer in polo

For the longest time I've been frustrated that I can't find dog clothes large enough for Spencer out there. And then I realized something, my old shirts fit him just fine! Here he is sporting a Penguin polo $38 Nordstrom

national arboretum

capital detail, yep I shimmied up a column to get a better look! ; )

Bonsai Tree

Capitol dome and DC on the horizon

Gorgeous weather and restless dogs led us (finally) to the National Arboretum this past weekend. Of course, my favorite feature, (pictured here) is the freestanding Corinthian colonnade prominently atop a hill at the center of the park. Against the blue sky, these giant columns feel like something out of a surrealist painting. ...or at least Athenian ruins. As with everything in this city, there is a historic back story. These sandstone pillars originally supported the U.S. Capitol's east portico (1828), but were replaced with marble columns during an expansion in the 60's. As you can also see, the trees and flowers are just beginning to blossom - there's a sweetness in the air that lifts your spirits a little. Hope you're enjoying the same!
