Travel Humidifier

Occasionally, the climate control in a hotel room can leave a lot to be desired. Ideally, staying at a hotel should feel like a comfortable home-away-from-home. This travel humidifier could be a genius solution to creating a more comfortable climate on the road. It would make a great gift, too, for travelers in your life.

A Beautiful Decatur House Wedding

I had such an amazing time working with a special couple on their Fall wedding at Decatur House in Washington, DC. Danielle and Jason did an incredible job in thinking thoughtfully through all of the details of their wedding. I especially loved their “getaway” after the ceremony on a tandem bike! They even gave bike bells to each guest to ring while they peddled away. So cool!

Congratulations, Danielle and Jason! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day!
