This is one of those posts that's more about recording what's happening in my life than about design - although there are some pics from inside the Rayburn House Office Building at the end. My oldest, Ryan, graduated last Wednesday at DAR Constitution Hall and it really was one of the best days ever. My husband is in a robe since he's a physics teacher at Yorktown High School.
As class president, Ryan gave one of the speeches - weaving in quotes from Lord of the Rings and the analogy of crabs in a basket - not letting others bring you down and pull you back from your dreams. It was really well received and I couldn't have been happier for him.
Earlier that same morning Ryan went to the Congressional Arts Award Ceremony and had a chance to meet Congressman Jim Moran (VA-8), who took time to chat with Ryan and was so nice and supportive of him.
Now for the design part. Of course I couldn't resist snapping a few shots of the eagle sconce, these gorgeous stairs and...
this amazing pendant light.
