Washington, D.C.

The first day and night of my cross country road trip was spent in Washington D.C., a place geographically not that far from home, but a city that I’d never really had the chance to explore.  The boy and I spent the majority of the day sightseeing (including checking out Julia Child’s kitchen at the Smithsonian), but spent the evening in the much less touristy U Street area (where we stopped by Foundry, a well curated new and vintage home goods shop and had a seriously delicious selection of tapas at Estadio).  We stayed the night at The Donovan House, where both our modern room as well as the rooftop bar looked out over Thomas Circle.  Definitely worth passing through.
