We took a quick trip to DC with my sister on one of the coldest days of fall so far. Eeesh. We were aware of the crazy forecast in advance so I wore every layer possible including my fleece-lined leggings and camp socks. It was still cold.
We made the brave decision this time to drive our car instead of taking the metro. If you've ever been to DC, you know that this is usually (and by usually, I mean never) a good idea, but it actually turned out okay. The traffic gods were smiling on us that day. We found parking not to far from Starbucks and started the day off with coffee (caramel apple spices for us non-coffee drinkers) and gingerbread. Yum!
