Gwendolyn Fernandez  DC by way of AL 🐘 Museum Educator @ngadc 🏛 Gardener🌱 Seeker 👁 Yogi 🕉 "You should in any case go to the museum often." Vincent Van Gogh 🖼

The pink lining to spring’s sloooooow arrival in DC is that the cherry tree in my backyard has been in bloom for over a week. Having a beautiful tree to look at was a big selling point when I chose this apartment 8.5 years ago (the second longest time I’ve lived in one space). I’m going to miss waking up to this beauty, but I’m grateful for a little extra time with her! 🌸🌸🌸#viewfrommywindow #cherryblossomdc

And so the farewell tour begins ... I spent my very first day of this DC chapter at the Supreme Court. That summer internship blossomed into a career and gave me six years of incredible memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. I remain deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the Court, its visitors, and my colleagues. (Not pictured: a farewell hug from Justice Sotomayor)

F R I E N D S! I have some BIG news ... I’m moving!! This is no April Fools. In two weeks, I’ll begin a new adventure in Arizona with this goofball. I am excited to take on fresh challenges in my new job at the Phoenix Art Museum 🎨 experience life in the desert🌵and deepen my partnership with the love of my life💑. But DC, make no mistake, I’m going to miss you something fierce! The last 12 years have been nothing short of incredible and I am more grateful than I have words to express. I’m hoping to dish out as many hugs as possible in the days ahead, so be ready! 💚🤗

These students are our future, and that fills me with hope. Arm schools with resources not guns! #marchforourlives

Happy 40th birthday to my OLDER brother! Thanks for always being there to support me! And tease me ... and beat me in video games ... and most other games ... except for puzzles. I got you there. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🎂🥊

Love can be a battlefield 💘 Here’s to soft landings and enough laughter to get through the hard times. Keep fighting for the good stuff!

Yes, I have a Mardi Gras bead collection, but more importantly, I keep it a Russell Stover’s denim heart-shaped box that @cidlowskicks gave to me many years ago! Happy Mardi-Galentines Gras! ✨👯‍♀️🎭📿💜💚💛 I am incredibly grateful for the women in my life; for the support, inspiration, comfort, and challenge they provide whether near or far. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
