Long time no talk! In case you haven’t noticed, but I’ve been out of the office for three weeks. When I say “out of the office” I mean I haven’t been in my pajamas blogging! A short month ago I received news of my husband and I relocating to Washington D.C.!!! Moving across the country sounds easy compared to our move from Japan just 18 months ago.
I spent the last two weeks searching for the perfect apartment in the D.C. metropolitan area. I was very fortunate and found the perfect little place in the perfect district! My tiny new gem of a place is in a quiet residential neighborhood, walking distance to cafes, grocery, boutique shops, and world-class restaurants and entertainment. I even have access to riverside paths I can run along. It’s a dream come true. I drove ALL over from Virginia to Maryland and more specifically to Reston, Alexandria Georgetown, Arlington, and Annapolis. I didn’t do much sightseeing, yet I at least got a taste of much of the region. I’m overwhelmed with excitement.
Long story short, I completed my mission of finding a home in D.C., and now I’ve left my husband there on a blowup mattress and I’m back in Milwaukee preparing to move all of our things and finish my work at the salon. Our move is a bit backwards, yet I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The hustle and bustle of life are taxing on our energy. Our energy craves daily moments of peace. Whether it be a relaxed trip or a busy trip, I find it difficult to workout. Discipline is out the window! While running from place to place I kept thinking to myself how wonderful it would be to have some workouts made up ahead of time. Catered workouts to where I’m temporarily staying.
