So far--I think I'm in love. It's an exciting feeling--to take a blind jump and find happiness in something totally unexpected. Don't get me wrong, I was and still am skeptical and nervous--I mean who the hell moves to Virginia? When I told a friend of mine that I would be moving to Virginia to live next to a river (the Potomac), she laughed and exclaimed "omg..you live next to a river?! you're a country gal now!" People who's never visited here thought I was moving to a farm...
But so far, this area's captured a piece of my heart. Being a huge fan of city life (awesome food and a working bus system b/c I absolutely hate driving!) and places rich in history, I find Virginia/D.C Metro Area to be the perfect mix of old and new--century old red brick buildings and colonial homes infused into dense bustling neighborhoods next to tall modern high rises. It's a mix of San Francisco, New York, Boston and everything in between. And best of all, my two feet and the metro system will get me everywhere!
Thus I decided to create this blog to document my new adventure and mainly of all the eating we'll be doing! Because there's two things that make me really giddy, traveling and EATING! I love love love love FOOD! So watch out east coast, I've got a suitcase full of stretchy pants and I'm HELLAAA ready to EAT!
With that, I will leave you with two signs I bumped into while strolling the streets:
Life's too short to not eat what you want and go wherever your heart tugs you!
