I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season with family and friends, and for those of you who celebrate it, I hope you had a very merry Christmas! Between the boisterous game nights, delicious meals, services, singing, and cocktail drinking, T and I were able to escape for a couple peaceful hours at the Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens in Northeast D.C.  It’s a hidden gem on the other side of the National Arboretum [both just minutes from our apartment] in Anacostia.  You would never know it’s there… and unfortunately I think a lot of people don’t.  We visited on a Thursday afternoon and the entire park was empty, save for a few mallards splashing in the ponds and a couple of frisky doe romping in the woods.

It was absolutely gorgeous out.  We didn’t need coats and I was glad to get outside for some fresh air in this little pocketed sanctuary of the city.  T and I were heading to his brother’s holiday party later that evening, so I was already dressed in a new gold lace cocktail dress with an aqua cardigan for a pop of color.  I’ve been legitimately obsessed with this color palette this season – I even wrapped all my gifts in gold paper with aqua and neutral rafia and ribbon!

I can’t wait for New Year’s Eve to break out some more gold… and maybe a little sparkle too!
