Kathy + Reynold: President Lincoln’s Cottage

Did you all know about President Lincoln’s Cottage in DC? I had no idea it was there! It’s gorgeous and has so much history on that site.

Married: Amy + Mark, Old Silk Mill

If ever there was such a joyful and laid back couple, it was Amy + Mark. Amy found me when I was at the beginning of restarting my business again on Thumbtack. I sent her a quote and then quickly deleted the app because I didn’t have much luck with it and was getting frustrated. […]
