Happy Anniversary with a Splash of Work

When your husband asks you to join him on a work trip and attend a conference all day on your anniversary, what's a girl to do?  Say yes, of course!

Last week we flew into Washington D.C. Since I had never seen much of our nation's capitol, we decided to spend the evening there.  It was a surprisingly easy city to navigate our way through.  We found a parking garage and walked towards the Capitol.
It's so much more impressive in person than on TV!
We sat outside just admiring it's beauty and the amazing-ness of 75 degree weather in July.

Directly behind us was this view--the sun setting to the right of the Washington monument.

It was such a fabulous way to kick off our trip!

There was even a band warming up on the steps of the Capitol.  So cool.

We found a restaurant within walking distance and set off on a nice stroll.  As we were leaving, we were struck by the magnificence of the Capitol--makes you proud to be an American!

Sitting on the patio enjoying a cold glass of Rose and Stella on tap--now that's our kind of night.  We were highly amused by the scene next to us, too.  So many interns and young people that work on Capitol Hill.  We totally felt like we were in an episode of Veep!

The next day we spent most of our time at the Data Center Conference.  We chatted up some industry peeps, passed out business cards, and tried our best not to show how boring we thought the panelists were.  By 4:00 we were done--thank goodness!  We didn't want to waste any of our time there, so we researched cool places to go see.  Turns out Great Falls, VA is amazing!

God's Beauty is always impressive.  While we were looking at this gorgeous scene, we noticed 10 bald eagles flying overhead.

A few hours later, we were enjoying our awesome dinner at Eddie V's!  We started out with cocktails in our special rose petal-decorated booth.  Cheers!  Dinner was outstanding, and the service was on par, too.

They treated us to Bananas Foster for dessert.  SO good!

It was the perfect way to celebrate 14 years together.
Happy Anniversary, babe! Here's to many more!
