flower gazing

in japan, the phrase for going to see the cherry blossoms is "hanami," which basically means "flower look." i love that phrase because that is exactly what you want to do when you go to see cherry blossoms: look and look and look.

which is what we did friday night.












though we also spent just as much time talking to friends we ran into around the tidal basin, which is another thing i love. a big city can really feel like a cozy home when you find the people you know in the midst of it.

that's the magic of hanami, i suppose.
