… for 4th of July Washingtonian style

For the third time, I have been fortunate enough to be in our nation’s capital for our nation’s birthday!

Although I did not make it down to the National Mall like I did in previous years, it was nice to take in the 4th of July experience from a less tourist-like view. As much as I love being around people from all over the country and sitting just a few feet away from the monuments, I wanted a change this year to mark the fact that I am no longer just a short-term visitor in this city. I ended up watching the fireworks on a beautiful rooftop overlooking the District thanks to the generosity and hospitality of a friend of a friend of a friend! Immediately after the official fireworks display, we lit our own fireworks in the alley and enjoyed playing with our sparklers.

Happy 235th Birthday America!
