Quick Trip to DC

I have to share a quick post on our whirlwind trip to DC this past weekend.

First things first, we started with a delicious breakfast and cappuccino to fuel us for our 11 mile — you read that right, 11 miles! — day.

Staying in Northern Virginia we grabbed a bite from a cute, nearby pop-up shop, Mom & Pop.

Absolutely my kind of coffee shop, the type that displays the flakiest pastry dusted in a nice layer of powdered sugar, makes a perfect latte, and turns into a nibbles and wine bar in the evenings — if that's not perfection I don't know what is!

If you follow me on the 'gram you saw how amazing this avocado toast was!

With food to keep us going we headed into the nation's capital, parking near the Eastern Market area and walking down Capitol Hill.

Waving to the Supreme Court and hoping they'll astutely judge what's realistic for the 21st century and set fair precedents for the generations that come after us.

And onto the one place I was most excited about seeing — the National Gallery of Art.

I grew up in Maryland and often went into DC on field trips, mostly to the National Gallery of Art, where my love of art history began. I honestly credit trips to this museum as the basis for my fascination with all things art and culture.

From here we stopped for a quick bite and then moved on to the Renwick Gallery, which is currently housing an exhibit on Burning Man.

Look at the beauty in these structures.

It was a long day, walking a total of 11 miles!

Which meant some well deserved margaritas at the end of the day...

Don't worry I'll do a proper post on the museums in a bit — it was just such a lovely little trip south that I needed to write this tease of a post.
