Back from the east....

Just came back from a trip to the east coast with these fabulous ladies; Michelle, Cassondra and our gracious host Hope. What a fun time we had! We started out with a fabulous birthday brunch for Hope with some of her local artsy gal pals.

The trees in Baltimore were brilliantly in bloom.
Such a treat for this Minnesota girl since it's still snowing at home!The next day we headed to Washington DC and first stopped at the Eastern Market on Capitol Hill.
We all got cute matching bags made out of sari's.
The surrounding neighborhoods were just gorgeous.
We spent some time on the Mall taking in the views and watching all the kites flying in the perfectly blue sky.

The tulips were at their peak.
Sunset at the Washington Monument with the capital behind us was brilliant!The next day we headed to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Then we were back to Baltimore at Hope's house and had a marathon art journaling session. Such a treat with these creative ladies! I had such a great time with my peeps.

Miss them already.

Neat trip. I'll have to check out that market sometime when we are in the DC area. It's really nice this time of year if it's not raining. We were in DC last year (I live in s.e. PA). Baltimore isn't too far away.
