washington dc

it had been about a month since i had been on an airplane so i figured why not go to washington dc for the weekend to visit the lovely jilli and jane. it was a short trip but such a perfect weekend. we saw the sights, laid out on the grass at the mall, went to the smithsonian (i was in heaven with all the french impressionism), ate a lot and spent time with jane's family. it was her grandma's eightieth birthday, so we threw her a little birthday dinner. its safe to say that i'm obsessed with her grandparents.

the place: washington dc
