Along with cookies, candy canes and Christmas trees, one thing I especially love about the holiday season is the U.S. Botanic Garden’s annual train exhibit. This year’s display, which featured lighthouses and ships made from plant material, was by far my favorite collection yet. Being from So Cal and having a mother from Boston, I think I’ve just always had a natural fondness for the sea.
Pretty cool, huh? After touring the exhibit on New Year's Day, Stephen and I then headed over to the Kennedy Center to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. While it wasn't my favorite show, I did appreciate the music, humor and moral behind the story.
Oh, and how cute is this handmade alpaca I picked up at the National Museum of the American Indian? Definitely a cute addition to our living room shelves!
Are there any annual exhibits in your area that you love checking out?
