amber, these are so pretty! it sounds like you're having an amazing time. :)
I really like the second and third pictures. :)
Your cherry blossom pictures are stunning, and I love the scene of you hugging the pillars at the Jefferson Memorial. I love Washington D.C. too. Thank you for reminding me of that!
