We’re finally settling in our home in the Northern Virginia/DC Metro area. It’s nice to be back after being gone for almost five years. When I first came to this area in 1999, I lived in Alexandria and during the warm months I biked to work in DC via the George Washington Parkway, a ten mile trip each way. The path winds along the Potomac River going through Old Town Alexandria, past National Airport and Gravelly Point where I would always stop to watch the planes take off, then up to Arlington Cemetery and across the bridge to the Lincoln Memorial. Talk about a great commute! It was a refreshing way to start and end each day.
With three little boys keeping me busy at home now, my days of bicycle commuting to DC are over, but it still feels good to be here…like I’ve come home.
We’re working on getting things set up in the house, and of course the kitchen is a top priority. Adjusting to a new kitchen space is always an interesting challenge. More on that soon…[Disclosure: This blog earns a small commission through affiliate links.]
