The Better Martha Takes Washington D.C.

This past week it took a lot of willpower to abstain from posting a million photos to Instagram. I was visiting friends in D.C and it was marvelous. It's the only city I've been in where every building is seriously significant. I was walking down the street with Bridget and she pointed out the Supreme Court, the National Archives, and the Library of Congress all within a few minutes of each other--and this was just a few minutes before she took me to the capitol building.

I had an incredible time hitting all the necessary tourist spots like the White House, the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Declaration of Independence, and so many more places that allowed me to totally geek out.

I'm absolutely in love with the brick townhouses and their small flower-filled front yards. It was so refreshing to be out of the city and in a place that was spacious and clean! I could not get over the fact that the subway stations were so tidy, and everyone was so normal compared to the eccentricities that I normally see commuting on the NQR.

I visited the buildings of dollar bills, Frank Underwood, and Olivia Pope, but in all honesty I came to D.C. to spend as many hours as possible with Bridget. Between trips to the World War II Memorial and the National Treasury, she took me to her favorite bakeries, cafes, and book stores.

The best moments from my trip were the late night games of Boggle, the delicious morning omelettes, and the endless cups of English breakfast tea. Bridget is  a full fledged tea addict, and while my new obsession is not quite on her level, it is getting pretty close. cookingeggs
