my instagram weekend {18}.

this weekend was ah-mazing.

i spent saturday morning volunteering with wreaths across america at arlington cemetary, a wreath laying ceremony. there were thousands of people that poured in from every corner of the cemetary. we witnessed veterans, active men and women, family members and friends join together to pay respect and pray for those no longer with us. it was a touching morning.


sunday night was blogger blitz dc, hosted by the fabulous {av} of long distance loving. i met so many wonderful and inspiring women! this was my first blogger event so i was nervous about going. it was completely out of my comfort zone. i'm somewhat of an introvert so it's hard for me to open up and meet new people. but i'm so, so happy that i put those nerves aside and attended the meet-up. everyone was lovely and so welcoming. now i can't wait to hang out with these ladies again! thank you,  {av} for planning this meet-up! i hope there is another one soon!


have you ever done something a little out of your comfort zone?

p.s. be sure to check out a {little} dash of ash for other instagram weekends!

p.p.s. you can find me on craftinista modeling my favorite new scarf!

So fun meeting everyone- definitely out of my comfort zone but so worth it! Still loving those glittery name tags :)

I hope to attend a blogger blitz someday! I would feel a little out of my comfort zone too!

SO so so nice meeting you yesterday! I had so much fun. I don't think anyone in that room was IN their comfort zone, but didn't it feel good to push yourself like that? I loved the name tags as well!

Oh my gosh, I love that you volunteered to place wreaths! I absolutely love Arlington--the feeling there is unlike any other. What a great experience you must have had!

I found your blog from Jenni's page--I'm your newest follower! :)

It was very lovely to meet you at blogger blitz. I look forward to continuing to keep the DC blogger connection strong.

and thank you, thank you, thank you for laying wreaths in arlington! we burried three family members in arlington this year and many of my aunts and uncles and cousins were laying wreats right along side you. it is so appreciated!
