I was in Washington this week and was blown away again by how much I love it there. I unabashedly adore New York, but it seems I am in love with DC, too.
I think the more time I spend in these bustling metropolises my life in North Carolina seems rather safe. Don’t get me wrong. I do love North Carolina! It is a gorgeous state with a lot of really, really smart people — NC has the highest number of PhDs and MDs than anywhere else in the country. It’s where I went to college and it’s where we raise our daughters. I love it here.
There is, however, this nagging feeling that we need to move. My spirit is restless.
Whenever I’m in New York, DC, or Chicago I always leave with this biting urge to live elsewhere. This is indeed the year that we make baby steps to living somewhere other than North Carolina. My mom lives in the DC area and that is a huge plus. I can’t wait to see it happen.
