March 29 – Beautiful Blossoms

I'm happy the cold nights haven't killed our flowers, these guys are hangin' in there!

Last night, Madison and I walked all the way up Mass Ave to Wisconson Ave.  After an hour of uphill walking we made it to Cactus Cantina, the sister restaurant to Lauriel Plaza.  When  I say sister, I really mean twin: same margs, same fajitas.  The clientele was different though- more families, and there were a lot of kids sitting at dinner playing with iPads. Our margaritas were well deserved after such a long hike to dinner.

On our walk we saw these pretty little white flowering trees and of course I whipped out my camera.  Sorry I’ve been neglecting the V Life this week… I’ve been making strong moves (shout out to LivingSocial) and all of a sudden I realized it was Thursday.

March 19 – Cherry Blossoms

View of Washington Monument from the Tidal Basin

 

This morning the sky was so blue when I woke up, and the breeze was already warm and sweet.  I knew clouds were headed our way in the afternoon so I drank my ICED coffee (tis the season), ate my cereal, and hopped on my purple bike. One of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2012 is to bike more, and so far I am happy to report I have been keeping it up!

I went for a two hour bike ride down to the tidal basin and around the Mall, enjoying the weather and stopping to take photos when I saw a good shot. It was the best morning I’ve had in a long time! This city is so beautiful, especially at this time of year.

More photos to come, I promise!
