the white house at christmastime

A few weeks ago, my mom asked if I'd be interested in taking a White House tour with her.  I said yes of course but was counting on having to rely on my memory to remember what the inside of the White House looked like (which could have proved difficult since I'm so used to relying on my camera to remember things for me).  However, for one reason or another, cameras were allowed on the tour (much to my surprise) and I was able to snap away throughout the self-guided tour.  Of course the tour was only in designated areas (and it was more like visiting Monticello where everything is roped off, etc) but it was beautiful in all its Christmas decor.

We were asked to write a card to be sent to those serving our country

Unfortunately the real Bo wasn't running around...


Chandelier obsession

Probably my favorite room

The Green Room

Repurposed newspapers and magazines in The Green Room.  So cool!

So many gorgeous garlands

  1. Whew! Long post! I love the Green Room!

  2. Ooh, I love the one fourth from the bottom...I'm assuming that was at 12mm? The distortion is so rad!
