In about 1 day from now I'll be on my way to Colorado. All our worldly possessions are on a large truck , somewhere between here and there. Jack and Leo are driving out right now, and the baby and I are flying there on Tuesday. What an adventure!
I can't help but feel nostalgic about the 4 wonderful years we've spent here in the DC area. I have felt more at home here, than any other place we've lived. I love the history, art, and energy of this area.
I will miss our lovely suburban neighborhood in Virginia, our kind neighbors, and all the dear friends we have made here. I will miss the spectacular Spring and Fall seasons- when every plant is blooming with flowers, or ablaze in color. I will miss the lakes, the trails, and the numberless trees. I will miss fireflies in July, the famous cherry blossoms, dogwoods, and azaleas in Spring.
It has been such a delight. I feel honored to have lived here, to have experienced Washington DC and so much of what she has to offer. This place will always hold a very special place in my heart.
