Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

Coldwell Banker Annual Christmas Window Display
Every year there is a delightful Christmas window display along Pennsylvania Avenue SE. Coldwell Banker is the sponsor. We have a connection to this place because we bought our condominium through them... specifically with Gary Jankowski. The display reminds me of the old fashioned kind, with the essential and necessary train, village, and shiny stuff. Someone or a lot of people take hours of time putting this thing together. It is simply magical and reminds me of the windows along Michigan Avenue in Chicago. We would routinely visit the windy city for my birthday that happens to coincide with this time of the year. This display is just down the street from us and we always walk past it before Christmas. Nothing can put you in a more festive mood - without the snow and the ice.
