The National Cathedral is my favorite DC landmark.
It took 83 years to build, was started when Theodore Roosevelt was president and was finally finished during George H. W. Bush's presidency.
It is stunning inside and out, with over 200 stained glass windows depicting traditional religious motifs, as well important events in American history.
High up among the gargoyles is a statue of Darth Vader.
Kenny and I got engaged in the Bishop's Garden on the Cathedral grounds.
It is the highest point above sea level in the nation's capital, though from base to tip not as tall as the Washington Monument, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and the Old Post Office Building.
It has incredible acoustics and is just a few blocks from our house, the perfect distance for Sunday afternoon walks.
Random Act of Christmas #5: Today's random act is a surprise gift for someone who reads this blog, so I can't go into the details. But we had fun making the surprise and can't wait to deliver it.
