DC: Speed Trip

You all know I thrive on spontenaity, right? So it shouldn’t surprise you that last Monday – three days before I was to fly home to San Francisco – I looked at Bug and said, “Let’s go to DC.”

And so we did.

As soon as we arrived in Northern Virginia, we just knew that it was a place we could live.

So Bug made a few calls. We looked at schools, the weather, the quality of life. We found a house we love.

And…it looks like, if everything goes right, we’re moving to DC!

In less than a week, we went from random suggestion, to planning a cross country move.

But DC wasn’t all about finding a new place to live, we also took the boys sightseeing – mostly at 8am because we’re all jet lagged and awake at 4. We basically had everything to ourselves, which was awesome.
