weekend getaway

We headed down to D.C. last weekend for a quick visit to our nation's capital and with Dan's aunt Margaret who was the perfect hostess even though she was sick. We've been there enough that we've seen the big sites so we enjoyed a casual morning at the Eastern Market, an afternoon at the National Portrait Gallery and an evening hanging out in Georgetown. Sunday morning we headed to the farmers market at Dupont Circle, the National Cathedral, and a yummy lunch at 2 Amy's pizza with sweet Margaret. But I think one of my favorite parts about D.C. is driving through all the adorable neighborhoods and gawking at the gorgeous homes! It was short trip but we managed to pack a of fun in two days.
Sunday morning we took a quick walk through the farmer's market at Dupont circle where these lovely flowers were on display.

The crowded Woodley Park metro with all the families headed to the National Zoo
It was definitely spring in Washington D.C.
I think this door is the perfect color of pink
and I think Dan was just making fun of me when he asked me to take this picture

I love brunch at the eastern market. My favorite time of day with some of my favorite trinkets.

Hi there - I randomly stumbled upon your blog (I think I googled subway kitchen tiles or mud room looking for ideas).....could be wrong, but I think that's what led me here?

Anyway, I just had to comment on this post because I posted a whole thing on pink doors not long ago. Here's the link:
