We’re two ladies from below the M-D Line, trying to hold on to our southern charm and grace amidst the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Originally from L.A. (that’s Lower Alabama for anyone north of Atlanta), the D.C. Darlin’ made her way to Washington a little over a year ago by way of Kentucky. After spending a few years in LexVegas (where among other things, she went to school and met Big Apple Belle), she heard the city calling her name and made the trek to D.C. She currently resides in Northern VA (because we southerners do best in the ‘burbs) and spends her time running, playing volleyball and loving life with great friends.
Bred, born and raised in the Bluegrass State, Big Apple Belle (formerly Boston Belle) found herself staring in the face of reality almost 4 years ago upon completion of her undergraduate degree at the University of Kentucky (where she met DC Darlin’—Go Cats!). Opportunity came a knockin’ by way of an encouraging faculty advisor, and she found herself packing her bags and heading to the big city to add a graduate degree to her resume. She exited the airport with nothing more than two bulging bags, a piece of paper scribbled with the address to her new apartment, and a tip on how to ‘hail a cab.’ Broke, nervous and a ‘graduate program freshman’ at Emerson College, she found herself with no connections in a foreign world—ready to take on a new chapter in her life! Nearly five years later she is the proud owner of a really expensive (but useful) graduate degree, a fantastic husband (Mr. Prince Charming) and a life in a NEW city that is slowly taking her under its wing. She currently resides in New York, NY where she enjoys chick lit, discovering amazing restaurants, museums, shops and much more, dinner with friends and baking.
