Cherry Blossoms






For about two weeks in the spring, DC is the place to be.  This is all because of the Cherry Blossoms - don't worry it's nothing as fancy as fashion week but they sure are pretty.  I've always stayed away from the cherry blossoms because the tourists are out of control - like seriously.

Well a few days ago, some friends and I ventured out to see the cherry blossoms.  It only took me three years to do this, so I obviously had to document the trip.  The cherry blossoms were definitely worth the battle of the tourists but I'm not quite sure if they were worth the $100 parking ticket I got....

I hope you all enjoy the pictures of the trip - it's not quite as pretty as being there but at least you don't have to deal with fighting a ticket.  Happy weekend -  I am in Charleston for my friends wedding and cannot wait to see all my college besties!

    Looks beautiful! The blossoms in the last photo almost look like snow flurries. We have a cherry blossom festival here as well in the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. I really gotta check that out this weekend.
