Addy’s living her best life. While I’m at work downtown, she’s out exploring the city with our nanny. In one day, she goes to the library, museums and multiple parks. Today she experienced the Building Museum’s #FunHouseDC. In honor of that, I’m posting a beautiful photo my friend Holly (@golightly) snapped of Addy and our friend, James (@thisisjamesj), a week ago. As much as it’s fun to live in DC, it’s the people that make it worth living in. People like Holly and James, who not only champion Washington, D.C., but cheer on its people in creative and life giving ways. I hope Addy is like Holly and James when she grows up. . . . . . . . #igdc #theotherdc #dccitystyle #walkwithlocals #washingtondc #mydccool #funhouse #acreativedc #designmilk #ig_motherhood #kidsindc #simplychildren #childhoodunplugged #enchantedchildhood #letthemexplore #candidchildhood #wildandbravelittles #dadlife #washingtonparent #dcwithkids #dctography #washingtondaily #bythings #friendsinmyfeed
