Back to Reality

Ahhh, we are back. Back to r-e-a-l-i-t-y. And although I am not super thrilled about that, I am excited to catch up on all of your lives and tell you all about our fantastic trip!

Our vacation was incredible! We had the best time.. and for the very first time since I think the day I started to travel was BORN, I tried (key word here) super hard to barely plan a thing. Normally I make schedules and itineraries and lists of restaurants I want to try that I look up beforehand, and map out each and every place we'll go in advance... But this time, we tried not to do any of that. I wanted this trip to be relaxing and enjoyable for both of us, without having to worry about rushing off to do tours, or feeling pressured to do something on the list.
And mission accomplished! The trip turned out to be great and relaxing, which was just what we wanted.

Our stunning hotel ended up being in a great and super convenient part of town with close access to a lot of the main attractions either by walking or a short metro ride. This was fantastic! So, if you go to DC, stay at the Omni Shoreham. Please? You'll love it. I promise. So we saw pretty much everything to see in the city itself... all the monuments, famous buldings, streets and cathedrals. We even made time to go up to Georgetown's gorgeous campus and walk around a little. And with the weather gods answering our prayers, we had sunny and 75-80 degree weather the entire time! Yay.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures! :)

Phew. What a weekend, right?! Even though we had an amazing time, we did miss our little baby. I was so happy to be home and reunited with Char! I seriously thought about him every minute of every day. Hope everyone else had a great weekend :)
