DC in December

I was originally planning on going to Washington DC as part of my October US trip… but I had to head straight to DC in order to find an apartment and interview at a few different firms. Because of my interview schedule and general uncertainty over scheduling and timing, I hadn’t made any concrete plans to head to DC (even though it is only a couple hours away and I was long overdue to make an appearance). Finally, one of my DC besties gave me the swift kick I needed by sending a text that said “Seriously tho, DC?!?!”. I booked a bus ticket that same day for less than two weeks later.

I managed to head to DC for four days – got in one evening with my London/Texas bestie who just recently moved to DC for BigLaw (proudayouuuu girl) which we spent at SoulCycle for our girl Taylor’s birthday, spent two days with one of my Paris/DC besties who just had the most gorgeous little girl,  celebrated all sorts of fun and happiness with my Paris girls over a long-scheduled winter reunion, squeezed in some pilates and yoga at Circle Yoga (where I worked for two years in college) and got a bit of respite from all of the interviewing and unemployment drama. It was divine and exactly what I needed.

You know you’re in DC when you come across this sort of thing when walking down the street…

Cold and static-y in sub-freezing temps

While it was a short’n’sweet trip, I am ever so grateful that I will be only a couple of hours away from all of my fantastic friends in DC.
