Hey ya’ll! I’m fresh off my birthday travels to Washington, D.C. and feeling quite refreshed. The beau and I spent five days exploring the city and all that it has to offer. Whenever I travel, I look forward to submerging myself with the locals versus doing all the touristy stuff. This time was a bit of an exception however, since it was his first time visiting the area and I was excited to show him why I fell in love with it back in my glory days of being a Flight Attendant.
We stayed in a cute little Airbnb setup in the Brookland area which I’ll be sharing more details on in my next post. As well as a few individual review posts of some of the places we visited. My favorites were Marvin, Busboys & Poets, Ben’s Next Door and Old Ebbitt Grill.
One of my main goals on this trip was to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture that opened last year. Everyone talked about how difficult it would be to get in because of the huge backlog of ticket requests. But as one whose always loved a challenge, I woke up super early on Friday morning in hopes of snagging a couple of their same day timed entry passes and I did! It was truly an awesome experience to see so much of our history and culture curated in one place.
Ironically, we were also in town the weekend of our friends Artsy Fartsy Pop Up Shop where I finally snagged a cute pair of sunnies from EyeCraz (pictured above) after having my favorite pair stolen. Long overdue! I love seeing people do great things and supporting them in the process. So if you are looking for a fashion and production company with a proven track record, EthniCITY Brand gets my vote!
Now if you follow me on SnapChat, you were privy to the daily play-by-play of this trip which is way too much to cover here. But all in all, it was a great trip! As usual, I enjoyed spending quality time with the beau most. Since we are both somewhat workaholics, it’s always nice to get away and enjoy each other as well as take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Stay tuned for my individual review posts to come and here’s to Year 32!
