My favorite view in all of DC

The weather in DC has been so fabulous lately. So one day last week I grabbed my camera and ran outside during lunch to try and capture a small piece of the majestic capitol building. I'm so lucky, because I get to enjoy a view of this beautiful building every time I go to work. I know that I might never get that chance again, so I'm trying my best not to take it for granted. 




I mean come on, how gorgeous does this look with the perfectly green trees and the bluest of blue skies?


The monuments are all amazing, and I don't take as much time as I'd like to enjoy them but the capitol building will always be my favorite sight in this city. 

Someone once told me that when the sight of the dome stops taking your breath away, it's time to leave this town. For some reason that little antidote has stuck with me for years. I see the dome driving to and from work, walking around the office, or any time I leave for a meeting. But I try to take a moment each day to appreciate how lucky I am to be here. Working in DC and on capitol hill for the last three years has really been a dream come true, one that I will not soon forget. As frantic and stressful as life can be at times, I really appreciate having such a beautiful view to remind me just how lucky I am.

Emily,

Those pictures are insanely gorgeous!! When I was a little kid, my favorite movie was "In the Line of Fire" -- I used to want to be a secret service agent when I grew up! Meanwhile... I always think of that movie when I see the Washington Monument. Funny, huh?

So jealous! My aunt and uncle moved from here to Alexandria and I visited them for the first time last may and fell in love with it! DC is absolutely amazing and is probably the only place I would move from Louisiana to!
