Goodbye DC

Things I have loved and will miss

Friends, living in our neighbourhood, The National Zoo,  Hank’s Oyster bar, Central, The National History Museum, driving over the Key bridge, Barnes and Noble, Two Amy’s pizza, The Cherry Blossom Festival, driving past the White House, the National Christmas Tree, the Botanical gardens train display, road trips, Diane Rehm, Kojo Nnamdi, This American Life, George Town Cupcakes, pumpkin spices lattes, Wholefoods, jumble cookies, the colours of the trees in Autumn, going to the beach, snow, skiing, the AU campus, Politics and Prose, our local park, driving past the hospital and knowing that’s where my son was born, red birds,  summer, Shenandoah National park, the Cheaspeake, crabcakes, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, my local library, Ihop, the way the moon looks, accents.

I’m sure there are a million more things big and little that I will miss. I feel so lucky that I got to live in this amazing city.

I don’t know when our internet will be up and running in the new house, but I will be back. Until then hope you all have a good book to read.




  1. Oh I can't even believe you are like, MOVING to the UK, I would be scared out of my mind! I hope you have a safe trip and get settled down smoothly πŸ™‚ Man, I still think what you're doing is crazy xD


  2. This made me all teary, Alexa. Travel well. I never made it to DC, but I will aim for a U.K. visit for sure. Love you!


  3. Oh, Alexa! I just about cried, reading this. It looks like Joelle did, too! πŸ™‚ The U.S. will miss you!!!!!!! But the U.K. will be glad to have you back. Eat some real Cadbury chocolate for me. Hugs!


  4. Exciting and sad all at the same time! Wishing you all the best in the move! Take care and travel safely πŸ™‚


  5. I hope the move goes smoothly! Have an amazing time!


  6. Have a safe trip and hope the movie goes well πŸ™‚
