Matt and I are in the process of searching for a new apartment…smack dab in the heart of DC.
Obviously, we are super excited. We desperately need a change, and since it looks like we’ll be in DC for a while per Matt’s new consulting gig, change will have to come in the form of a new space, not city.
We currently live on the outskirts of the District, close enough to go in and enjoy it whenever we want (and for me to commute to and from every day for work) while being far enough away to relax in a slower-paced environment. We absolutely adore Old Town for its quaintness, it’s cobblestone streets filled with history (and George Washington’s townhouse!) and of course, King Street and the Mount Vernon trail. However, we have covered so much ground here (literally, between our multiple walks/runs per week, we’ve had to touch every square foot) that we are beginning to feel a bit restless. And by we, I mainly mean I…I am constantly restless. Matt believes I inherited it from Mama, my 93-year-old grandma who only sits down now because the doctor told her she has to. If she could still live by her own rules all the time, she’d be pulling an all-nighter at the casino as I type. And if I could live by my own rules all the time, I’d be flailing around Italy, Spain, Australia. Or Seattle. Or Wegmans. Pshhh…who needs this whole job thing?!
Welp, as Matt likes to remind me – we do if we’re ever going to get to any of these far-away places. I, however, still have hope that Mama will win big at the casino!
But until then…DC living hopes to be our next adventure. We began to look at apartments last week, and it is awfully exciting to think of transforming a new space into our home. Even if it is only 600 square feet! I can see the mason jars stacking up already…
Which leads me to start dreaming of that someday in the future, after we’ve travelled the world, seen the 840,329, 157 things on my must-see list and have finally decided to settle down and buy our dream house. And since I am a Pisces, I tend to dream a LOT. So here are some places/spaces/ideas I’ve bookmarked for future references, when we finally get to the adventures of a real home!
