In DC, the Post hieress' estate called Hillside Estate and Gardens lies..I wasn't so sure what to expect until I arrived and was so pleasantly surprised at the collection of furnishings, relics and the amazing gardens..this is the main staircase going up to the bedrooms of the mansion that was taken from a French castle and brought to DC for Post..A must visit when in DC..
Across the street from Ford Theater...after Lincoln was shot he was carried across the street to a hotel..the hotel has been expanded housing items of Lincoln and as you descend the staircase these all of these books are stacked that have been written about Lincoln...
Attending the American Counseling Association conference I came across this dog at the convention center..only to find out he is a certified "therapy dog"..Sweet and velvety soft..he has his own stool just in case the person can't reach him..Of course I loved this dog he's a therapist!
