I moved to the city everyone talks about! It feels amazing and big and bold and right. My best friend and boyfriend happened to be here the weekend of settling. (Come back, please!) So taking everything in was somehow better. The metro. The park. The hoards of people. The infamous energy. It’s all here.
Some photos of the first week here. The last one of July. The summer going.
Bloggers, readers, friends! Please give me your recommendations. I have a lot to see and eat and drink. I’m here to stay.
P.S. Tell me Thi and Ashley aren’t the best? He takes really beautiful photos of her (not hard to do) and others in the city, which you can check out here.

I get incredibly homesick when I go places. It’s not ideal, but it’s manageable. The excitement of seeing a different setting, where other people are home, is worth feeling far from whatever grounds me. Traveling is important. Does something to the psyche and heart. All the things people say it does. (Some of which are grounding.) And I think about it, in general, a lot. I’m very excited for some upcoming trips, but right now I’m so happy to be in the Carolinas. In the faux-cold. With buttermilk biscuits (also things I think about a lot). Seeing what you can of the world is personal. It’s choice. What you look at and where you leave. And I love that.
My favorites from last year:
