Happy hump day, guys! We’re halfway through the week – yay! I can almost taste the weekend. I was going to write this post this past weekend, but I got so busy and wasn’t able to get it done, so I finally forced myself to sit down today and get this done. Last week, I went to DC for the first time to visit my brother. He moved there last year and I wanted to go visit him before he moves again (he’s in the military so he’s always moving around). I’ve been telling people last month that I’m going to DC for the first time and people are always so shocked to hear that I’ve never been there before. FYI – I was supposed to go on a school field trip when I was younger but 9/11 happened so we never ended up going! So, here I am, 16 years later, visiting our nation’s capitol…. And I LOVED it!
The weather was so warm and the cherry blossoms were just starting to come out. I absolutely loved the architecture there and visiting all the free museums, learning about our country’s history (again). It was amazing to see the Lincoln Memorial in person, being from the Land of Lincoln and all. Such a cool experience to see it all in person. My favorite place, though, was definitely Georgetown. I loved all the cute little shops and homes there. Every corner is just as cute and photogenic as the last. I seriously could spend an entire day there but we were short on time. Wish I had more time to spend in DC to see everything but I guess that just means I have to go back one day!
I’m back in Seattle now and just laying low for a couple of weeks until my next trip to New Orleans. If you have any suggestions of things to do, let me know below! Until next time, friends!
