January 6th? Or April 6th?

It is a glorious, blue-sky, sunny 53 degrees out today! I am LOVING it!! It sure doesn't feel like January-more like April. I didn't go to any sales today. I went to the movies with Kevin instead. I am so glad I went too! We saw War Horse and it was incredible! I hadn't seen any previews, so I didn't know what to expect, and I wasn't too thrilled about going. I just went along because Kevin asked me, and we don't have "date time" as often as we should. I hope the movie wins lots of awards-it is very deserving in my eyes.

We're thinking of going to D.C. the end of March for the Cherry blossom Festival...any thoughts, ideas or advice about that? I know it will be crowded with this being the centennial year, I'm wondering about parking, driving around, places to stay, etc. Any tips or advice you can give me will be very greatly appreciated!!

Hope you're having a great Friday, and that your weekend is relaxing, and refreshing!


  1. If you don't mind some walking, stay in Alexandria and take the Metro into DC proper. You should be able to pay less for your hotel, and not have to worry about parking. And...Alexandria is a lovely city! Just make sure you map out your train stops ahead of time as there are some sketchy parts of DC right next to the really nice ones.

  2. Arlington is another option -- cheaper than DC and on the Metro line. You'll also be a train stop or two from Arlington Cemetery which is a beautiful walk over the bridge to the memorials. No matter where you stay, I think the Metro is a MUST!
