Sitting in Our Tree

 

WHAT KIND OF CAMERA/LENSES DO YOU USE?
An old one. We’re saving our pennies for a new camera, but in the mean time, our ol’ Canon Rebel T3i is getting the job done. We have a 50mm & a 35mm lens, but we shoot with the 35mm most of the time for on-the-go pictures.

YOU REALLY DISAPPEARED FROM BLOGGING FOR A BIT – WHAT HAPPENED?
Ugh, LIFE, man! Last year, we both were getting into the swing of our new jobs – Jared taking on a brand new industry & Kelsey taking on small business ownership with Tart. Our free time all but disappeared in 2015, a year that we will fondly look back upon as The Year of Hustle.  Since having Crew in April 2017, we've mostly been tackling this whole parenting thing, but as he becomes more independent, time is becoming a little more manageable again to come back to write!

WHY DID YOU START A NEW WEBSITE?
We switched over from Blogger in an attempt to legitimize & revitalize. Blogger is a free blog hosting site that did the job for literally 5 years, but as we hope to get & give a little more from our blog, we needed something new to reinvigorate our content & our aesthetic after FOUR whole years on Blogger! It was a big day to buy our domain, & we're currently hosting on Squarespace.

BUT WHERE ARE YOUR OLD POSTS?
They’re still over on blogspot! Read to your heart’s content about our wedding or that time Kelsey took an outfit photo a week for an entire year, old Four Good Things, that one hairstyle tutorial or Minus & Plus posts.

ARE YOU GOING TO BE SHARING STYLE POSTS?
Soooo, remember that time that Kelsey was like “Hey, I did this style blogger thing for a year & it’s not what I want out of blogging?” … Yeahhhh, so turns out that sharing outfits was 1) HUGE motivation for us to actually get the camera out & actually sit down to blog & 2) your favorite x3459873 type of post that we share. In conclusion, yes! You can expect to see more style posts in the future. Update 11/2017: I am currently navigating my way through this post-partem body which is about as awesome as I imagined it would be (not), so don't hold your breath. But a blog is GREAT motivation, let me tell ya.

I’M COMING TO DC TO VISIT, WHAT SHOULD I DO/EAT/DRINK?
This is a great question that we can’t wait to answer as we develop our DC neighborhood guides! In the meantime, shoot us an email & we’ll send you some of our favorites!

WHO ARE AMELIA & ANDREW??
We love this question & are more than happy to explain. Amelia is Kelsey’s best friend/business partner, who happens to be married to Andrew, Jared’s best friend/the Turk to his JD. We spend a LOT of time & major life moments with the Coulombs, so consider them frequent reoccurring guest stars here on the blog. Their son, Cohen, was born two months after Crew so we're expecting a lifetime of dynamic duo-ness from those two.

HOW DO YOU STILL NOT HAVE A DOG?
Trust us, after seven years of marriage, this kills us, too. Our first apartment in DC was a little over 500 sq. ft., & honestly, we couldn’t imagine trying to add a dog to our limited amount of space. It would have been maddening for us & a little unfair to the dog. We moved to a bigger space & voila! Crew showed up! So not quite the right time for a pup. But! We know in our hearts that our long awaited pup is just around the corner. & we can. not. wait.

WHAT *INSERT BABY ITEM HERE* SHOULD I BUY?
I (Kelsey) wake up in cold sweats every night because I haven't put together our baby registry blog post yet. It's on the to-do list & is forthcoming, PROMISE! In the meantime, feel free to email me here for some recommendations because I have pretty much read the entire internet of baby everything. All of it.

I'M JUST HERE FOR THE CHRISTMAS PLAYLISTS, CAN YOU POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION?
I like where your heads at, & yes. Click here.
