It’s hard for me to think I’m gone from DC, hence the “for now” in the subject. As excited as I am to be in London, it was still hard to leave DC and the friends I’ve made there. But I know I will be back regularly for work, and who knows, maybe someday will live there again.
I spent May, June and July soaking in my favorite things about the city in a whirlwind of packing, planning, working, running, World Cup-ing, happy hours, dinners and goodbyes.
Oh, and I got to see President Obama speak one day! It was awesome. The only other time I saw him in person was on his 2008 campaign, so I was really excited to see him speak on the Georgetown waterfront.
On my last morning, I made one last trip to the Thomas Jefferson memorial and prepared to fly out. DC treated me really well for five years, and I still don’t feel like I’ve really left yet. But, on to the next adventure!
