Capital and Library of Congress


So first of all I just want to point out that my photos lose all quality when I upload them to the blog. This is something that I'm going to have to address because it's just not cool to share such mediocre photos with y'all. I promise they don't look this bad before I upload. But anyway... we did tours of both the Capital building and the Library of Congress. And I'll tell you right now that the Capital building tour left a lot to be desired.

Pentagon Memorial


There are a lot of memorials in Washington DC. Like, a lot. But for some reason the Pentagon Memorial wasn't one we were really planning on seeing. In fact, we weren't really planning on visiting the Pentagon at all until we realized we had some time late in the afternoon on our first day. And, wow.... I am so glad we carved out some time to see this place. I was nearly moved to tears. Talk about humbling, y'all.

Arlington National Cemetery


The first stop of our trip was Arlington National Cemetery. We arrived late in the morning when the sun was beating down, and the temperatures were rising quickly. We were dripping in sweat before we even made it to the visitor's center from the nearby metro station.

June Goals


Okay, so it may be the middle of June (the middle of June already?!), but it's never too late to set a goal. Or in my case, tell people about your goal. So without any beating around the bush, here's my one goal for the month of June:

Make time for me.

In high school, I had a very busy weekday schedule. I'd wake up at 6:30 in the morning for school, and I wouldn't get home until 9 or 10 every night. But during the weekends, I typically had all the time in the world for me. I didn't have siblings, and I wasn't the type to hang out with friends very much. So being by myself, I obviously had plenty of time to indulge in the things that I enjoyed doing.

1000 Places: Washington DC

Last week, my family and I visited Washington DC! I'm home now and still exhausted, but I figured I could get a post up considering I haven't blogged in over a month. (Insert see no evil monkey emoji here.) The following pictures were all taken on my iPhone and also posted to my Instagram, so if you follow me there this may seem kinda deja vu-y. Anyhow, I think these are a good round-up of highlight photos from the trip, which also makes for a great way to start off trip posts and provides an official "1000 Places" post. Enjoy!
