July 4th from the Capitol's Congressional Floor

It was a beautiful evening ~ first, I photographed a proposal (#shesaidyes)! Then, I picnicked on the Capitol west terrace with my bff Kristine (whose articles are rocking over at Military Times, yeah!) as we watched the spectacular fireworks display this evening here in Washington, DC.
Happy Fourth of July!

National Cherry Blossom Festival 2019 ~ DC

Spring is just around the corner in our nation’s capital! The cherry blossoms will soon bloom around the magnificent Tidal Basin.
Here’s a shot of the Jefferson Memorial during last year’s peak bloom.
