My D.C. Experience

Sunday, July 12, 2015

Oh, how I have missed blogging! For those of you who have been keeping up with me on Twitter and/or Instagram, you know I've been away at our nation's capital these past few days attending a National Conference. This is the reason I haven't posted lately; I tried pre-planning my posts, but as we can all see, that plan ended up not working out due to me being a lot busier than I thought I would be the week prior to my leave. But I'm back now and ready for a new month of blogging - posts will return to their normal 8 a.m. Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule soon. I had a wonderful time in Washington D.C., but I'm really happy to be back home. Here are a few photos from my travels...


Georgetown Cupcake in Georgetown! The line was long, but these cupcakes were definitely worth the wait (and the long walk it took to get to Georgetown from the Metro).

The changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery.

The U.S. Capitol Building, which my group got to tour the inside of!

We're from Florida, we couldn't be prouder - if you can't hear us, we'll say it a little louder!

The White House (before they made us all leave for who knows what reason...).

The view of the Washington Monument from the Lincoln Memorial at night.

The Lincoln Memorial (which involved many, many stairs to get to...).

Gala Night after taking home the Gold earlier in the day! D.C. themed with origami, cherry blossoms, picture backdrops and all.

I had such an awesome time this past week and I'm extremely thankful that I had the opportunity to go on this trip with some of the greatest people I'll ever know. I definitely am going to have to go back one day when I have children so that they can experience our nation's great capital for themselves. It was real, D.C.!


  1. It looks like you and a great time!! I absolutely love going to D.C., it is so beautiful and there is so much to do! Georgetown is definitely one of my favorite spots and the cupcakes are delish!

    I hope you are having a nice weekend!

  2. Ah I love DC! Georgetown Cupcakes are the best!


  3. Oh my gosh I love D.C., it's one of my absolute favorite places. It looks like you had a ton of fun! By the way I'm so jealous you got to go to Georgetown Cupcakes, my family and I didn't make the time to go and I wish we did, the cupcakes look soo good!
