Love Of The Pretty

Sometimes, when I’m feeling overwhelmed and aggravated by my day, I go in our Flickr Finder (this cool tool that the WLDC author list uses to find the pictures we use for posts, thanks Don!) and I just look at pretty pictures of DC. Our flickr contributors are awesome, and it’s a nice break. I don’t care that this is cheesy, it’s my thing. It makes me feel better. It puts me in my zen place.

Today is particularly hellish, and I didn’t get to go to the high heel race yesterday, stupid rain, and it’s all wet and gross outside, and I miss the weekend. So between you and me? I’m cranks. I took a little time with our flickr finder (ommmmmm) and I had a nice little moment of transcendence. And then I thought that maybe you guys could use a little pick me up of pretty too. So, if you’ve got the doldrums, here are a few of my favorites, just randomly, just for you, just today. Cause even when the day is going to hell in a handbasket, we still live in the best city, EVAR. So, without further ado, here is DC in all her glory: Katie’s-day-sucks style.

ahhhh, so much better.

Katie moved to DC in 2007, and has since embarked upon a love affair with the city. She’s an education reform advocate and communications professional during the day; at night and on the weekends, she’s an owner here at We Love DC. Katie has high goals to eat herself through the entire city, with only her running shoes to save her from herself. For up-to-the-minute news and reviews (among other musings), follow her on Twitter!

  1. Today’s been kick-a-puppy lame, and this, plus the view in Chinatown when I came out for lunch, has me reconsidering my plan to kick another puppy later.
