Sitting in Our Tree



Oh, hi!

I’m Kelsey (on the left, just to be clear), & I do most of the writing around these parts. & when I say most, I mean all.  The prematurely greying heartthrob on the right is Jared, & he does a lot of the picture taking. The face that made you smile in the middle? That's our baby. We love him a lot & yes, he's that cute all. the. time.

A little about us: We met the glorious summer of 2006, when I was 17 & he was 18 (so infants, basically) & Shakira was telling us all about how truthful her hips are. It was very nearly love at first sight & by fall of 2010, we said our I dos. We stuck around our hometown in Southern Virginia for nearly four years, before Jared accepted a job in Washington, DC.

We’ve now called the District home for three years, where Jared works in men’s fashion & I am creative director for my company, Tart Event Co. We discovered we were expecting our first little baby last August, & welcomed our sweet Crew in April 2017. He is truly the light in our lives.

I’ve been writing about our life together since we got married, sharing bits & pieces of our daily happenings, grand adventures, & favorite things – You can read old posts by heading over to our old Blogger site, but honestly, life is way cuter over here now that there's baby photos involved,

We’re pretty passionate about the following things (in no particular order): Jesus, our future dog, our future not-apartment-home, tacos, Amazon Prime, style, chasing down DC’s best *insert food or beverage here*, rainy days, Cholula hot sauce & Frasier.

So hi! We’re happy to have you here.
