This was such a fun day. Paul and I hiked in Virginia that morning and then checked into our beautiful hotel in Alexandria. One of my best friends from college lives (lived) in D.C. and she met up with us after work. We went to a cheese shop called Cheestique and then I ordered almost one of everything at The Happy Tart. I was one happy tart after a trip to this bakery.
These cupcakes and macarons were heavenly. The light blue ones were fruit loop flavored.
For years I loved visiting my college friend Rebecca Green Ell in Washington DC. She lived in Old Town and had access to the most amazing restaurants right outside her door every day. This tapas place was and still is one of my favorite restaurants in the DC area!
