We had a special guest this past week. We had an extra reason to visit the city we love so dearly.
We woke after the sun. We had hearty breakfasts at an actual table. We explored every beautiful part of DC and Virginia. We smiled extra long at the cherry blossoms. We went exploring. We took our time. Father and son had a chance to bond. Father and daughter had a chance to laugh. We all connected over our love for our country.
We shared somber moments, heartfelt reflections, and thoughtful pauses in Arlington National Cemetery. This place puts life into perspective. War, life, death, and freedom are all buried and remembered there. It's a sobering thought knowing I was alive and standing over these graves because of the men and women in rows all around me.
We visited The National Cathedral and decided everything was better with stained glass and cherry blossoms. We saw the history of aviation unfold at the Air and Space Museum in Dulles. We even saw a space shuttle.
I've fallen in love with this place yet again.
