I have now lived in DC for one year! Happy Anniversary!
After living in LA for three years DC was a welcome change, though apparently I have a thing for two letter cities. I was back to the change of seasons. Fall colors and sweaters and drinking warm drinks.
My last night in LA was spent out with all my friends and my Mom who was helping me move. When someone brought up the fact that I would get to experience autumn again there was a collective sigh, and everyone started stating their favorite things about fall. We were all East Coast kids and Southern California weather was quite the change for us.
And boy did I come back east for quite the winter. I loved every second of it, unlike most people. I am a true winter girl. DC actually got a bit of snow this winter which I completely enjoyed and, of course, photographed.
I've loved living right downtown. Walking and metroing everywhere is such a refreshing change after being chained to a car in LA. I try to take advantage of this awesome city every chance I get.
As the seasons changed to summer I've done lots of traveling, (so many weddings) but I always looked forward to coming back to DC. On my last return here I finally felt like I was coming back to my home. And that is just a wonderful feeling.
Here's to another wonderful year in DC!
