One large mercy in my treatment has been interval break weeks. We’ve learned to maximize this time by doing memorable things like taking day trips or doing special stuff. (Mercifully, our annual family beach trip will fall on a break week. Hor-flippin-ray!) During my last break, I got to do something special that was just for me. I attended a Kinfolk dinner in D.C. and felt like a child going to their first birthday party. It was held at Union Market with some incredible vendors and unbelievable food (with a gluten-free cherry bourbon cake that about put me over the edge of propriety.) My new friend Rebecca from A Daily Something hosted, and my partners for the THRIVE retreats, the girls at Sweet Root Village, did an unbelievable job with the decor. And the whole night felt like a bit of a dream in artistic fairyland.
Other local vendors that made this night so special included: Union Market, West Elm DC, Number One Sons, Maptote, Marcella Kriebel Art + Illustration, Tonic Site Shop, Mornings Like These, Point68Seconds, Matine, Natural Linens Boutique, Finch Sewing Studio, Andy Zipf (The Cowards Choir), Mark & Laicie Heeley, Lindsay Ponta, Holly & Melissa, Knead & Know, Goldilocks Goodies, Jrink Juicery, Madcap Coffee, & We Mix Drinks
