I went to Washington DC this past weekend to visit with my cousin who was there for the inauguration (!). In addition to my visit to the Renwick Gallery to see the '40 Under 40' exhibit and that wonderful glass dress by Karen La Monte - I had a chance to visit congress (not in session) and the senate (talking about the immigration bill). I'd been there when I was little girl, and more recently to a craft show with a good friend, but I'd never had the chance to explore the city on foot, use the Metro, and stay in the heart of the city (Dupont Circle). Even with three days under my belt - I know I only scratched the surface. Can't wait to go back!
