Hello, sweeties! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Mine was amazing and very busy! We went to Maryland to meet our old friends and stayed the night at their country house. After a stormy night filled with crashing waves and a symphony of nighttime creature noises, we went to my see my Seattle friends in Washington, DC. I was so happy to see my cute Japanese fun mate, Aika! She is another foreign blogger who follows her dreams here in the States! You should definitely check her blog out (link here)! I love that she is not afraid of trying something new! You can see this especially with her new hair color! Aika traveled out East with the talented photographer, Teban, who I met last time I was in Seattle when conducting an IFBK Interview (check here). Of course, we kept him busy during this trip by snapping pictures for our blogs. Haha. He is a master of improvisation, as the rain was falling pretty hard in the Dupont Circle area. Anyway, I decided to split my posts since Teban took so many great pictures!
