"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Laisser les bons temps rouler

Ciao bellas! Hallo Schöne. Salut mes belles. Hello lovelies! I have missed you so much that I needed to greet you four times. You are four times worth it! I know this is like the bajillionth time I have said it, but I'm back baby! Back and more motivated than ever to dedicate myself to this blog! Things are going really well for me right now, and I want to share my excitement with you dolls.

I have been working for DC's regional city magazine, The Washingtonian, as an intern since November and I can honestly say I have never been happier with any employment!  I just feel like it fits me, and every day I wake up excited to go to work. Well, after I get my morning cup of coffee, of course. Not only do I work with incredibly talented writers and editors, but they are even letting me do a little writing myself. I feel like I am really developing my writing style, learning how to express creativity without being quite so wordy (ok, I'm still working on that) and discovering the difference between writing for print and online. I'm also making progress towards opening my photography business, and even booked my first paid gig for next month! I can't wait to work with this couple and hopefully create engagement photos that they will look back on fondly for years. I'll share more with you as the business unfolds. Wow, I used "I" like 10 times in that paragraph. Self-absorbed much? :)

To kick off my return to bloggy land, I headed over to Cities Lounge last night to celebrate the first blogiversary of Cap Fabb! Roommate met me after work and we sipped delicious libations, nibbled a few delectables, arranged flowers and mingled with great ladies! It was a first class evening all the way, and I can't wait to join many more group outings!

Happy blogiversary Cap Fabb! You sure do throw great parties :)
H. bloom blossom bar
The gorgeous floral bar thanks to H. Bloom! We got to make our own accessories and arrangements. Some of the amazing ladies made incredibly ornate fascinators and corsages. Being the uncrafty gal that I am, I glued a few feather on a headband, stuck a pin in and called it a day. 
yummy cocktails
You know there were good drinks! 
sangria
Yum, yum, yummy sangria!! I might have indulged in a glass... or two :)

Cap Fabb
Our fearless leaders, Liz and Lacey. Happy 1 year ladies, and you should be so proud of how much you have accomplished in just a year. I can't wait to see what the next year brings for Cap Fabb!

photo booth fun
Just for the record, all parties should have photo booths that are this fun! 
So I totally understand if you want to hold off believing that I am back until I redeem myself by posting more than once a month :) But, believe it or not I really am back with a renewed motivation for blogging and I can't wait to catch up with all of you!! I'll be back on Friday with an amazing product review! 

Bisous!
