Where: The most wonderful day enjoying the Cherry Blossoms at the National Cherry Blossoms Festival in Washington D.C.

Today was one of those days that could only be described as perfect. My boyfriend and I decided to go see the beautiful cherry blossom trees in Washington D.C.

In case you don't know, the Cherry blossoms trees are absolutely beautiful! They have millions of little light pink flowers that grow all over the tree. They also look gorgeous when the petals of the tree brisk through the wind.

It was so romantic to walk around holding my boyfriends hand and watching these majestic trees. It has always been a dream of mine to see them, and this is the 2nd year in a row that I have this wonderful opportunity.

When there are many cherry blossoms in the same place, it looks like a sea of light pink flowers. Simply breathtaking!

Apart from enjoying the Cherry Blossoms, my boyfriend and I got to see the Smithsonian! I have always wanted to see what was inside this Castle looking building :)

The inside was nice, but for me the real beauty was Smithsonian's garden! Wao, I was very impressed!

They even had a hidden Cherry Blossom in their garden! I felt as if I was a princess enjoying the garden of her enchanted castle...jejeje, I loved it!

We finished the day off by having lunch at an absurdly delicious Spanish restaurant. We also had some delicious popsicles while we walked around the city and enjoyed the pretty spring flowers.

All in all, it was a beautiful and happy day. I'm so happy I got to make such beautiful memories. Have any of you ever seen the Cherry Blossom trees?

  1. Lovely and inspirational as always. I just gave you an award over the!

  2. Yet another great outfit with that great cardigan! Love the pics!!!

  3. A perfect dress for the occassion. You yourself blossom amongst the flowers. Great pics of beautiful scenery and wonderful moments you are living. Thanks for sharing. Like Kathryn said its lovely and inspirational as always. jgm

  4. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Love this outfit today! Also every time I see the Washington Monument I am reminded of what my sister used to call it when she was little - "The finger building," haha. Her first trip to DC was when she was four (it's only about three and a half hours from my house) and my mom took her to the top and she said she had to pee! Ha.

  5. Gorgeous photos! Have you ever been to Longwood gardens? Burgundy is definitely one of your best colors!

  6. They really are beautiful aren't they!! I love Cherry Blossom time!!! We went this weekend as well. Where do you live? I live in Old Town.

  7. A beautiful dress for a beautiful setting :)

  8. So many beautiful photos! I'd love to go to the cherry blossom festival in DC someday. The university where I did my undergrad has an annual cherry blossom festival, but it's nowhere near this spectacular!

  9. No, Longwood gardens doesn't have cherry blossoms, but great gardens ... your smithsonian garden comments made me think of it.

  10. I love this dress. Have I told you that before? I love how it starts out plain and ends up patterned.

  11. I'm so jealous you got to go to see the Cherry Blossoms. I'm from Northern VA but go to school in Chicago so I always miss peak blossom time.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it!
