It seems like just 10 months ago I was writing a goodbye letter to Vietnam, and now it’s time to say goodbye to a newfound friend: Washington. We moved here with the intention of having much more time together but Roger and the subsequent hormones demanded otherwise. While JD and I are hugely excited for our next adventure with our move to Michigan today, we also realize we’re leaving a lot behind. Here’s what I will miss about Washington.
Our social lives went from big groups of crazy-hat wearing friendly friends in Vietnam to a much smaller, but special few this year. Between our impromptu day trips, pregnancy fatigue and living more remotely, JD and I used much of our time to just enjoy being together. And I am happy for it. Two will soon become three. We are delighted (still terrified) by the impending arrival, but know that we don’t know how much it will change our daily routine. Having some one-on-one time with my favorite human has been great. With this exclusive mentality, it’s rather amazing we’ve made any friends at all. But we have. And those friends are funny, interesting and exceptionally kind. I will miss them.
