braved the rain and cold to play tour guide. we walked and walked and walked to–


the Capital

the several of the Smithsonian museums including:

the American History

the Natural History

and the Air & Space

…and finished up with drinks in Arlington

unfortunately I have no photos to show for it

{new goal: take more photos}

however i do have some serious blisters.

also, watched Indian Jones for the first time ever

[oh Harrison Ford you make one dreamy archeology professor]

and learned the joy of dry shampoo


this week i can’t get enough:

of these pretty cottages

some day I hope to have a little cottage in the country [i’ll have to keep my apartment in the city of course] where we can go apple picking in the fall and swimming in the summer.
