i had the pleasure of going to dc for nearly a week, courtesy of my new job. i hadn't been since i was 14 years old, so it was amazing to be able to experience the nation's capitol as an adult. the conference i was at took up a lot of my time, but i tried to make the best of it and was determined to visit as many of dc's neighborhoods as i possibly could. in the end, i got to hang out at a jazz lounge in dupont circle, at a french bistro and at marvin on u street, visited the eastern market, ate greek food in capitol hill, and traipsed all over the georgetown area.
i found the metro stops to be beautiful and inspiring. the size and architecture of each stop was amazing!
i got to attend a super fancy-pants dinner at the reagan international trade center. david gregory, host of meet the press, was the emcee! i told ya - fancy.
ever since i started following naomi davis' adorbs blog, the rockstar diaries, i've wanted to visit the capitol hill neighborhood to see what was so special about it! obviously i feel in love with the eastern market, housed in a historical building and home to TONS of fresh food, including meats, cheese, veggies, pastries and fresh flowers.
the georgetown area was perfectly quaint - but way more crowded than i expected. a few too many chain stores and gourmet cupcake shoppes for my taste, but it was a bustling neighborhood and fun to walk around, thanks to the perfect weather.
this painting reminded me of the little prince, my absolute favorite book!
georgetown was... georgetown. imposing, gothic, ivy-leagueish.
this marginally interesting church was the only building in arlington, va (where i stayed) i found worthy of a photograph
