I was able to take some pictures (more on this later - promise), but one of the things I must have said to Amber at least a dozen times this weekend is doing tourist-y stuff and visiting places in this area never gets old for me. I can look at a monument a hundred times and each time see something different or find something new about it I hadn't noticed before.

My goal for August is to take advantage of what's around me. I live close to Washington, D.C. - a place people come from all over the country (or even the world) to see. I need to visit it more, and not just when I have company. I live near lots of little pockets of awesome - places within close distance that I need to take advantage of.
I will blog about these places I visit or things I do - to share with you all, and also to help keep me accountable. (Nothing like the internet for some accountability, huh?) I'm already making plans for this weekend!
Do you take advantage of what's around you? Do you ever play tourist in your own city? Have you been setting monthly goals for yourself this year - how are you doing with them?
