We are lucky enough to own a rowhouse in DC and have worked hard to make it very cozy. We love coming home from work, making dinner together, and eating at the table together like we both did growing up. It’s a great time to tell each other about our days, plan for the weeks ahead, and stay connected. We also think it’s great practice for when our family grows to include a little one.
Each week, we get a box of fresh produce delivered which not only gets us to eat more and different kinds of vegetables, but also makes cooking way more interesting. Last week we cooked eggplant parmesan (we promise it tasted better than it looks!). It was the perfect meal for a cold January night.
Our puppy, Berkeley, is another big part of our evenings. We love taking her for walks, throwing her a ball, and playing with her many toys with her. She just joined us in June but she’s already so big!
She also spends a lot of time laying on top of Chris on the couch.
There’s not many better things than being at home together as a family with a fire in the fireplace, a homecooked dinner, and good music playing.
