DC in the Spring

Hi You all! We've been  on a little trip. We visited mydear SIL and visited all the sites.
The cherry blossoms were gorgeous!
Everything is like a postcard.
We saw many historic places.
We saw some beautiful gardens.
This is a little collage of some of the fantastic places we saw.
Here's some of the wonderful flowers that were in bloom everywhere.
This was my little souvenir. I'll probably make it into a Christmas ornament.
Just trying to get back in the swing of things around here. The weather is perfect. Please stay like this and not get any warmer!!  I can't wait to check up on all of you out there in Blogland.

  2. What a wonderful vacation Leslie, you lucky dawg! So glad you were able to take the time and enjoy yourself. I've never been to DC and long to go. Your cross stitch is darling, what a lovely remembrance that will be of your trip.

  10. Hi Leslie!
    Thanks so much for your sweet comments and hanging in there with me! I'm so excited to hear your "news" and look forward to hearing more. :)
    I thought about you as I went about asking my family questions over the weekend. I found out a little bit that was new to me, I am hoping more will follow ...
    My niece is getting married on the 11th! How can that be?! She was just five years old and climbing all over me.
    Hope you'll share more of your photos, everything looks so lovely.
