Weekend love

Friends make my world go round. This past weekend we spent a full day in Washington, D.C., with special friends of ours. In a couple of snapshots: Grub from The Tombs in Georgetown. Happy to be together. Warm gooey cookies taste better when shared among friends. And finally, we topped the perfect weekend off with baked apple french toast from Old Ebbitt Grill. I highly recommend it. Good friends, that is.

National Cherry Blossom Festival

I’ve been lucky enough to attend the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., for the past three years. It truly is a sight to behold, and this year was no different. Through my eyes… On Saturday, it hailed and rained early afternoon before blue skies appeared. Magnolia trees are also in bloom and just as beautiful. They happen to be Margaret’s favorite. The┬áJapanese Stone Lantern was presented in 1954 as a symbol of cultural partnership between Japan and the United States after World War II.
