My husband, Joe, and I had a wonderful trip to Washington D.C. We wanted to do a city trip at the end of summer and went back and forth between NYC an D.C. We ultimately decided on D.C. because neither of us have been since grade school. We stayed in a wonderful airbnb on historic Logan Circle, which was a short walk from the National Mall. We did all the museums, monuments, and historic buildings we could fit into four days. Our highlight was a visit to the Capitol via a tour from someone from our congresswoman’s office. We were able to sit in the House Chamber where the State of the Union speech is given amongst other significant events. The normal tours don’t get to go inside so we were rather lucky!
I packed pretty well, wearing everything I brought with the exception of one polo. I dressed appropriately for the weather, however, I wish I would have brought better shoes. Jack Rogers were a horrible choice for Day 1, and my Sperry’s were just O.K. I also would have brought a bigger crossbody bag since mine barely holds anything. I borrowed my friend’s charging case, which charges your iPhone all the way back to 100% after it gets low battery. That was a life saver for the trip and I’ll be purchasing one for my next iPhone!
We were able to meet three friends from Instagram and had a lovely time with each one:
Dinner with Dave (https://instagram.com/dave_money3/) at Founding Farmers was fantastic. He is a really cool guy and we love following him on instagram.
I’ve wanted to meet Tierney (https://instagram.com/tierdear/) in real life for awhile so I knew we’d hit it off. She took us to the best brunch at Farmers, Fishers, Bakers, and then joined us at the Newseum and Spy Museum. She was a wonderful tour guide of Georgetown, and great company during our trip.
Lauren, half of Necessary & Proper, met us for breakfast on Sunday. She is so sweet and is also a Michigan girl. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with her, especially hearing her stories about the real life Winklevoss twins.
We loved visiting D.C. and meeting instagram friends in real life! Have you been? What’s your favorite part?

It was a real pleasure. If not for my trip to NY, I would’ve spent more time with you and Joe. I’ll definitely be coming to Michigan to check ya’ll out. We’re gonna take some dope photos together!
