Here in the nation's capital, it's important not to take living here for granted.
For those that have been here awhile, it's easy to drive by the Washington Monument and not be astounded.
Back when I worked on Capitol Hill, one saying was that "if you ever ceased to be amazed by how the Capitol dome looks at night, it's time to leave DC and go back home."
Well, last night me and my fiancee took some time to take in a great Christmastime tradition in DC, the White House Christmas tree. For those that have never been, it's a must-do if you're in the area during the holiday season. One aspect of the set-up on the White House south lawn are the smaller trees representing all the states and territories.
If you missed it last night on twitter, here is a pic I took of Ohio's tree - which also happens to have a great view of the White House.
Sponsored by Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, the tree is decorated with all types of ornaments representing the Buckeye State.
Very cool stuff. Make sure you check the scene out sometime.
