Visiting the Library of Congress

Joseph and I took a wonderful vacation to Washington DC last week. Before I finish sorting through the hundreds of photos I took, I just have to share my favorite stop on the trip, the Library of Congress.

I was really excited for the visit due to my background in working with special collections. But once I walked into the building I was completely blown away by something different entirely–it is breathtakingly beautiful!

Below, two photos of of the reading room itself. I can’t imagine doing research in such an incredible space!
