Dolcezza at Mosaic district

An adventure that started out on the sheer mission of checking out the coolest-looking Target in Virginia turned into a total self-indulging and borderline barbaric gelato fest that perfectly wrapped up the warm spring weekend. One cannot simply go wrong with some gelato on a Sunday afternoon, especially if it's flavored dark chocolate and black sesame. Plus I was glad to finally check out Dolcezza - even though I've been more dying to try their Union Market location. This place is a happy concoction of coffee, ice cream, and beautiful interior. Yum.

It certainly seems like they have great coffee, but I was already too caffeinated at that point. Next time, though.

Also: you're not doing gelato right if you're not getting super messy and sticky while inhaling the cup in like, 5 minutes.

Winter's gone, spring is here...finally.

Oh my. This past weekend was the first weekend that actually felt like spring. Cherry blossoms have collectively bloomed now, so I fiercely avoided going to the Tidal Basin (most popular place for cherry blossom sighting) because I'd rather choke on a celery than die of claustrophobia in touristopocalypse. But thankfully, these trees that spit out this wonderful pink stuff are everywhere - they're actually everywhere RIGHT outside of my apartment! Eek. So beautiful. I see these the moment I wake up. Literally. Anyway, a short celebration post of cherry blossoms and all of its pink beauty.

More painfully cliche cherry blossom posts to come. Hopefully on film. :)

Last Fall, in Old Town Alexandria

I have two rolls of film I need to process/scan, so hopefully I'll be posting more often here soon. For now, I bring you some film shots from last fall around Old Town Alexandria that I never got to upload.
