Old Town

Last week, I spent the Sunday of my birthday week soaking in spring in the beautiful town where I was born...Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. It was a beautiful day...the streets were full of people...the sun was shining...the daffodils were in bloom...and I was with my two favorite people.

We are home from our trip to Washington D.C.. A week packed full of museums and breathtaking art, a cathedral that is, too often, left off the list of things to see in D.C. but where America goes to eulogize it's patriots, and said hello to George and Martha at their plantation on the Potomac..a.k.a. Mount Vernon.

It was a week full of walking and cherry blossoms, four hotels and lots of shops, and nine full days of family togetherness. We had a ball!

I'll be back soon to share the highlights after I regain my strength! Have a great week...and welcome April!

Enjoy the day,

  5. Happy April....and Happy Belated Birthday..... You have such a beautifully happy smile on your face... Mt. Vernon is on my travel bucket list...but the way our travel plans go, it may be in another lifetime LOL. Looking forward to a mini “vicarious” vacation through your upcoming posts. ~Robin~
