National Cherry Blossom Festival 2012 Centennial Washington DC

This year marks the centennial that Japan gave Washington DC an incredible gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees.  This epic festival will take place between March 20 – April 27, 2012 for five weeks.  I find the cherry blossoms so beautiful and ethereal – I had a chance to take my family to New York City a few years ago to watch the blossoms fall from the trees.  Absolute beauty.  One day I’ll see these bloom in DC.  Will you be there?
