washington d.c.

hi friends! we got back from our short d.c. trip and had the most fabulous time. seriously, it is definitely the highlight of our mini travels for 2017.. let’s be honest. we basically hopped on the plane, got to baltimore pretty tired after a full week prior and sort of winged it. got some great suggestions to jump start my planning from friends.. and it was go go go for the 2.5 days we were there. here is a photo journal of our trip with some tips & reflections at the end! definitely looking forward to our next visit to d.c. and the rest of our mini jaunts lined up (hawaii, portland, santa barbara) over the next few months. happy traveling friends!
