we've been in dc now for just about eleven months. of those eleven months mas has been away for work for six of them - or something stupid like that. poor kid. sometimes we'll be walking down a street that is three blocks away from home and he'll be lost until he spies a street sign. no seriously, that happened.
we make the most of the time that he is here (fighting over the best burger, attempting to redo some part of the house, etc) and i'm finding dc to be quite hospitable when navigating solo, or with frances. it is so weird to think about where we were just one year ago. things were different, our lives were different.
it's not been the easiest of times, mas and i have had some of the worst fights of our relationship since living here, but we've also had some of the best days. and together we are figuring it all out ... and eating ourselves silly. you guys the food in this city is dangerously good. something we weren't exactly expecting.
but after nearly a year i find that my two most favorite things have stayed the same, which for a creature of habit, is maybe not so weird? they are:
1. walking around the capitol. it happens daily and i'm still not sick of it. i wonder when, if ever, the awe will be wiped off my face as i look up.
2. good stuff eatery ... my FAVORITE burger place in the city.
this move has been good for so many reasons. i'm so happy that after only a year i can already see that.
ps - i totally screwed up my nails this week, but here's hoping i figure it out by next! it promises to be good ... i think.
