Goodbye 2016 – My First Year Blogging in Washington, D.C.

I’m getting really excited planning content for next year, but before I get ahead of myself, thank you! Thank you for reading this blog, which I started in August. This blog was intended to inspire myself to get out and explore the child friendly side of Washington, D.C. to its fullest. I didn’t anticipate that this project would bring new friends and collaborations into my life, and I’m so grateful for that-especially as the new kid in town. Here’s a recap of three of my favorite posts, three of my most popular posts and three posts about new openings in DC. You can also find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. Happy New Years! 

My Favorite Three Posts this Year

These three posts were my personal favorites. I studied plants in college and I love to eat, and my favorites reflect that.

1. Corpse Flower Live Stream

The Corpse Flower at the United States Botanical Garden blooms infrequently and briefly. I was really excited to see it, Ooey not so much.

2. Luncheon at L’Enfant

L'Enfant Metro stop is my FAVORITE place to grab lunch on the National Mall. It's hard to go wrong with so many options, and as a bonus you can eat picnic style during the warmer months.

3. Five Places to Indulge your Sweet Tooth

This French bakery made my list for top five places to schedule an outing around.

My Most Popular Three Posts this Year 

So, The Corpse Flower Live Stream post did not win any popularity contests among readers, I’m shocked! But these three posts have been the most viewed this year.

1. Nibble and Squeak DC is Here!
