I am a huge believer in escaping. Maybe that is a flaw, but I happen to see it as a gift. I think that getting outside of your comfort zone, outside of your little world offers a great deal of perspective where there otherwise was none. It offers a new way to look at your life, at your day, at your reality.
Today, I adventured into the beautiful world of Washington DC. Oh, how I love that town! It’s magnificent beauty and ancient grandeur captures my attention and my heart every time that I pass over that Potomac River into the District. My mom, my brother, and I took the day off, with complete disregard for school, work, papers, and a plethora of other responsibilities. We packed a lunch complete with homemade lemonade in a mason jar in the 60 year old picnic basket that was a wedding present to my grandparents. I threw the handmade, patchwork quilt into the trunk, and off we sped into the 90 degree Virginia day. I could not have asked for a more beautiful or delightful day! The Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom, (which will probably only last a day or more) and the hustle and bustle of DC was just what I needed to revive my spirits and give me a push into the rest of my week.
