A day in Georgetown + several cupcakes

I’m taking a small break from my Australia travel posts so I can talk about fall, undeniably my favorite season. :) Jay and I recently spent a day in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., for no specific reason other than to enjoy the outdoors on a beautiful day.

I’ve never seen this sign before even though we drive into D.C. several times a year…

Dean & DeLuca in Georgetown

First stop: grab a quick bite at Dean & DeLuca, where freshness is the prominent ingredient.

Dancers at Dean & DeLuca

We plopped down at a table just outside and dined while we listened to live music and watched this sweet pair dance.

Vegetable frittata

Our vegetable frittata was gone in a matter of seconds.

Georgetown C&O Canal

While parts of the canal were scenic, my favorite views in Georgetown are the residential areas.




When can I move in?

Georgetown Cupcake

Yup, we waited in the 45-minute line at Georgetown Cupcake and felt like rock stars when we made it in the door. This place even smells as good as it looks.

I’ll take half a dozen, please.

The mint cookies & creme was heavenly. Jay will argue that the coconut was the best. We also split a red velvet and then shared the rest with our friends.

Lauriol Plaza

Time for dinner. We met up with lovely friends of ours and caught up while picking at the El Gordo Grande Platter from Lauriol Plaza. This platter fed four hungry people fajitas all night long, and there was enough at the end of the night to fill an entire container full of leftovers.

We’re always laughing when we’re with these two. :)

Finally, one last photo to document the remnants of our cupcakes. What I’m not showing is me scraping the liner for more.

Happy fall to you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

    Awesome pictures. I love the residential ones, especially of the doors- the coloring and framing are really eye catching… and make me want to move there :)


    • Yes, we loved spending the day there! And glad you agree with me about the mint cookies & creme; I knew I was right. :) Thanks for stopping by.
