Last weekend, we explored Washington, DC and overlapped with Love Them Madly (less 1 of Them).
It was my first time in DC. It felt like my first time in DC. I proved to have no memory, no sense of direction, and no organization even though I spent four years living in the District during college. Reaching for the gingko biloba right now.
The main goal of the weekend was to see the cherry blossoms which were scheduled to peak while we were there. When this happens, the whole Mall is pink. Every grey, beige, and brown monument is suddenly that much more stunning. Of course, it snowed during the week and not only was it not the peak but it was difficult to find the one blossomed tree we found. We couldn’t help but laugh when we stepped back into our NYC apartment building only to find giant vases filled with gorgeous cherry blossoms. We chose to ignore the message.
Wishing everyone a happy exploration-filled weekend.
Hope you treat yourself to something scrumptious like this…
