First of all, the memorials at night are just so beautiful and so peaceful. Love love love love love.
[D.C. at sunset. Simply stunning.]
I got to see so many friends in D.C.! Like Beth and Jonathan. And Sam (obvi).
[Sam and I with Beth and Jonathan at the magical land of Shake Shack.]
And sooo many museums. Which was fun. This is me chillin' with Louisa May Alcott at the National Portrait Gallery.
[Oh haiiii, Louisa.]
[And Rothko at the Phillips Collection! I totally had a moment while I was there. I love Rothko's work. I just do.]
[Library of Congress. Not exactly a museum, but there are lots of old books there, so I figure it counts in this category.]
We also saw a bunch of darling neighborhood libraries. Which are always fun.
[Sam posing with a library. As one does.]
We also strolled through Georgetown, which is a wonderfully-charming area of D.C. We also went to Georgetown's campus, and it was also beautiful . . . and kind of neat/weird to see my "sister life." The thing I could have chosen. It kind of felt like "It's a Wonderful Life" type of moment, and that truly is a gift. And even though D.C. is wonderful, I'm so glad I chose Oxford.
We also made sure to swing by the Ukrainian Embassy. Because, you know. I love Ukraine.
[Sam: You know, if you touch the embassy, you're legally in the country.
Me: Well, I'll have to touch it then, won't I?]
