So I intended to do an outfit post today but I walked out to a monsoon happening outside of our house and let's just say, my reaction wasn't necessarily pretty. So instead of doing an outfit post, I decided to look back to my time spent in DC. At this time last year, I had lived in DC for 3 months already because I was interning at the Mexican Embassy for a semester. One of my all time favorite things in DC were the Cherry Blossoms. I had the date marked for the festival since January last year because I was that excited to see them. Little did I know that Brooklyn Botanical Gardens also has a Cherry Blossom Festival but hey, might as well see the cherry blossoms draping over the Potomac River while overlooking the Jefferson and Washington Memorials right?
Hah. I just realized I even matched the cherry blossoms. I forget if that was intentional or purely accidental. Brett came down for the weekend and we spent the entire day just walking around the river edge and having a little picnic while trying to avoid tourists which was literally impossible. There were tons of people EVERYWHERE. (I didn't count myself as a tourist because I was technically living there, even if it was only for 3 months, haha. makes sense to me, no?)
It was a beautiful day and I'm glad I was able to get pictures of it so I have a tangible memory of them. Ever since DC, I've been obsessed with cherry blossoms. I even have the cherry blossom body wash from Bath and Body Works. And I definitely need to see them every year but I NOW know that I can travel 25 minutes to Brooklyn rather than 4 hours to DC. I didn't even know Brooklyn had a Botanical Garden until some time last year! New York never fails to surprise me.
Have you guys ever been to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival? Go to this website and you see can see all that's being planned if you want to venture out there for a weekend! Believe me, It's definitely worth it.
And now I must venture off to the library to study for an exam that I have in 6 hours. Wish me luck!
Happy Tuesday! :)
