However, here are the things that have brightened my day recently:
--A lovely trip to OTA, catching up with a college friend and reconnecting with a cousin.
--The deep dish pizza from the pizza place by my apartment. It was a revelation to me and my roommate, and was gone by Sunday evening (we ordered it on Saturday).
--This tinted moisturizer. My face feels so light!
--The Montana State Society Royal Ball. I'll let you read the details for yourself.
--The band at said Royal Ball playing the best country tunes ever. I hit the dancefloor when Sweet Home Alabama started playing and my college friend was jumping in the air in front of the stage waving me over. #JustLikeCollege
--Eating BBQ for the first time in the DC area. It was pretty decent.
--Driving through Foggy Bottom on Sunday and seeing all the GWU grads. Made me very nostalgic for my own college graduation (which was SIX years ago, ugh).
--My five-mile run on Saturday. Longest distance I've run since last September when I messed up my right shins/ankle/calf. Was only supposed to be a three-mile run, but I may have gotten a little lost . . . #I'mNewHere #AtLeastISawTheLincolnMemorial
--Driving back from Alexandria yesterday afternoon on I-395, I came around a curve to a beautiful view of the National Mall. It was so unexpected (I had no idea where I was in conjunction to DC), that I actually gasped. I'm still surprised that I live here.
