dear friends

Now while seeing all of the sights and scenes of DC was amazing and lovely, the real reason we visited the nation's capital was to visit friends. Dear friends.

We saw some of my friends from when I lived in DC during the summer of 2008 (and if you take a look at that site, you'll see that I'm still the face of IPJ. Awesome.).I hadn't seen any of these fine folks in three years. Three. That's so long. Too long.
Honestly, it sort of felt like we hadn't been apart. You know those friends who you never skip a beat with? Those are these friends. IPJ class of 2008 has a very special bond. And I'm so glad I got to see a handful of them.

We also went to see some of the boyfriend's friends. A warm, welcoming group who made me feel like I was just a part of the gang.
Our night out was...well...amazing? Hanging out in a bar at the top of the W Hotel overlooking all of downtown DC was breathtaking. And sort of makes me want to move back. Like now. DC's just got me twirled around its little finger. Ever felt like that about a city? Like you'd do anything to be back there? Just to get another moment? Yeah. That's DC for me.

But I'm glad I got to share this experience with the boyfriend.
In our nearly two years together, we've explored a lot. And we're itching to see more. Soon. Any suggestions on where to go next (on the cheap)?

All in all, DC is amazing. If you get a chance to go, GO. You won't regret it. Plus, any place that can make me this happy... amazing.
