H St Festival with Eden

As promised, here are a few iPhone photos from an awesome festival we visited over the weekend.  (Thanks for the invite, Eden!)  I loved being back on Capitol Hill most of all, for how I love the Hill!  The only thing missing was my hubby.   He would have loved reliving our newlywed memories, like walking hand-in-hand on a Saturday while exploring our favorite neighborhood in the world.  Can't wait till we're reunited here in October!
welcome to the annual H St Festival!
& hilarious t-shirt for sale

beautiful handcrafted pieces by Jette Skadhauge
& my dear brother-in-law David at a popup library he co-sponsored to inspire petition-signing to return librarians to D.C. schools (they're now optional... sad); I scored about 20 brand new and free children's books at his library!

 food & fortunes

 loved this baretender's tutu (and silver eyeliner)
& local pickles

sign of the times: hipsters by food trucks
& our free blue raspberry snow cones from Capital City Church

serious pig roast
& Eden admiring gorgeous Amani products from Kenya

 cool mirrors, happy sisters (in-law, but who cares about that part)
& woodburning with a concave glass on the hood of a car (ie., huh??)

& bless D.C. Water, who provided a misted tent and free H2O on a hot day


  1. Hi Becca! Love your blog.

    It's a small world--we are a retired Army family, and our absolute fave assignment was overseas in Germany (Bavaria, more specifically). Some of our favorite people over there were a veterinarian (civilian GS or contractor, not sure--but not military) and his family. His wife inspired me that I really would like to keep goats and chickens someday.
    Congrats on your new baby, and my deepest sympathies on the loss of your sister.

  2. Wow, so cool, Stacie! We'd also love goats and chickens and are biding our time till we have more land (or really ANY land, as all we have in Sicily is a balcony) to get some, perhaps during our next assignment with the Army...?

  3. Love all the pictures,,thanks so much for visiting my blog,,

  4. Hi Becca, nice to meet you! I love Alicia's blog...she is probably the main reason I gave it a try. She really inspires me! I think your photos are must be having such a beautiful time over there. I am getting ready for fall and winter here, Might even get my blog back on track. Summer was too busy and too nice!
    Take care :)

  5. Becca - thanks for visiting my blog. I've poked around here a tiny bit; I'm terribly sorry you lost your sister! Very sorry.

    I had no idea the military had vets.

    Blessings to you -

  10. Hi Becca, thank you so much for popping by to my blog and your sweet words. Your blog looks great! and your little girl is adorable.
    How is the weather in Sicily at the moment? Its fresh here in the southeast of the UK, cold mornings and evenings which signal the start of autumn.

    Happy Tuesday
