I took this picture Wednesday evening after an event on Capitol Hill. Working at NAFCU, I get quite a few chances to see the Capitol Building, although not as much as my colleagues who lobby for you. I'll tell you this. This may have been the 1,000th time I've seen the Capitol Building.

It never gets old. 

Have a great weekend, everyone!
