1. Being featured over on My Little Maison
I “met” Mandy through twitter and was so excited when she was looking for bloggers to feature! This week she asked me a few questions on the blog about my home, blog, and design, among other things. I’m very grateful to Mandy for highlighting Reidmore! Be sure to check out her blog.

3. Blogger Blitz & Brunch
Sunday I enjoyed 4+ hours of bottomless mimosas at Local 16 with some of my favorite DC bloggers. It was great to catch up with familiar faces and to meet some new great girls as well! What is it about DC and brunch? I’m addicted.
After a bubbly brunch, we walked a few blocks over to Marvin for Blogger Blitz. This was my first time attending the Blitz, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was nice to meet so many new local bloggers.
I’ll be the first to admit that what you see above is not authentic Spanish sangria. I’ve lived in Spain for long enough to know that my version was just an Americanized-summer version. But holy cow, I don’t care. This sangria is that good.
And because it’s lighter with the white wine, the sangria is perfect for summer cook outs and get-togethers. In a pitcher, throw in some chopped up kiwis, raspberries, strawberries, lemon and lime slices, green apple pieces, and top with riesling and Fresca. Give the sangria some time to sit so the fruit soaks up the wine. You’ll thank me later.
5. Happy hour with work friends at the Majestic
