I've been telling people for several months that this is definitely the city where I was meant to live. The concentration of political activity, job opportunity, international culture, green space, and tolerable weather makes it perfect for me. Many of you have seen the hell I go through every year with my allergies, but thus far in DC I've been problem-free, even when wandering around the Mall and the tidal basin taking photos of flowers. It's a blessed relief. Anyway, here are some of my favorites from the Cherry Blossom Fest.
