Ever since writing my very last DC Diaries, my life in the nation’s capitol got just a bit morning exciting! Surprisingly enough, I did not explore the city that much until about 2 weeks ago. Once I started my explorations of my brand-new backyard, I have not wanted to stop! So far, I have admired the walls of two Smithsonian museums, the several sights to see around me right in front of my eyes at the National Mall, and the fireworks right in front of the city’s many monuments. My time in Washington, DC has most definitely gotten more and more exciting, and I am oh so excited to see what is in store next, too!
Since writing my Washington, DC Bucket List, I have since enjoyed a few photoshoots along the National Mall, including the National Monument, Korean War Memorial, and the United States Capitol. I have also devoured a delicious brunch at the oh-so Instagrammable brunch spot of Urban Roast. I took a day trip to the charming town of Annapolis, Maryland and went for a sail boat ride with family. Lastly, I *finally* was able to visit the National Cathedral after over a decade of wanting to and enjoyed a burger and fries at Shake Shack.
At the same time, I have been able to make some new and exciting plans for the next few weeks and months! I am planning to go and visit one of my friends at the Tyson’s Corner Center Mall in Tyson’s, Virginia – the 10th largest business district in the United States. I will also be planning some outings to the charming Washington, DC neighborhood of Georgetown home to Georgetown University where one of my best friends from Meredith will be attending graduate school. For a belated Father’s Day gift, I will be taking my Dad for a day to George Washington’s Mount Vernon this Fall and I will be taking my Papa to one of his favorite restaurants nearby our house, too. Three or four of my friends will be coming to visit me in August, so I am super pumped to be able to spend time with them and allow them to explore my backyard with me as well.
My apartment has also been set up after a long long long awaited time of waiting and setting it up to be. It has been a blast with some hard work to set it up, but I am super happy to be settled in and enjoying living here. Each week, I have been providing y’all with different types of reveals related to my apartment. So far, I have revealed my Bedroom, Kitchen, and Jewelry Organization with much more to come in the coming weeks!!!
Overall, I am starting to get settled into my new apartment in my brand-new city and enjoy it, too. Here’s to making many more memories very very soon!
