Cherry Blossoms

Yup, spring is officially here! For DC, this apparently means only one thing – cherry blossoms. In an effort to see what all the excitement is about, I headed down to the Tidal Basin this morning and took some pictures. Having never seen the blossoms before, I was surprised at how much color they add – the whole area is awash in white and pink. Really makes the whole area pretty.

Not much going on outside of blossom festivities at the moment. Work has been going well so far; I’m mostly taking classes at the moment to finish my job training, which will continue to keep me busy until at least August. August will also bring the much-venerated summer bid cycle, when I find out where I’m headed for my next post! Kind of ready to get back overseas and definitely have some ideas on where I’d like to go, but for now I’m just waiting for that bid list to come out 🙂
