I spent the spring of 2007 and the fall of 2008 living in D.C., and I thought I would post some pictures to show you a little of that time in my life! I had the fantastic opportunity of interning for my Alabama Congressman, Terry Everett, during my junior year of college. It was such an amazing opportunity that I thought I wanted to spend a few years working in government affairs. So, I gave D.C. another shot after I graduated college by moving up again the fall of 2008. My love for the city quickly turned a 180 and I no longer felt like D.C. was the place I wanted to be. Hence, moving back to Central Virginia.
Would I ever want to move back there? No. Am I glad that I no longer will be going up there for work? Yes. I am so thankful and excited to be getting married/starting a new career/settling down and staying in the quaint, beautiful mountains of Virginia. I know that time in my life was a growing experience and holds a big place in my heart. I learned a lot about myself not only personally, but professionally as well. I met some fantastic contacts through networking and met some fun friends while I was there! I know not many people have the opportunity I experienced and I don't take that for granted.
D.C. ..... you are my love/hate relationship.
