On the Move!

Every time I promise to post more often, I feel like life hits me with full-on and I don't get to write! Right now I'm actually on the other side of the country in Washington state looking for a new place to live. Come mid-March I'll officially be a west coast girl! I'm still not sure how I feel about that being that I've lived on the East coast for almost my entire life, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Where we're moving to is pretty much the middle of NO WHERE though. We're about two hours from Seattle or Portland, but in order to get to Seattle in the winter you have to make sure you can get through the pass. This is not something I am used to AT ALL. One plus is definitely that I'll be that much closer to shopping in San Francisco, but I am already desperately missing my New York City and Washington DC. You really can't beat the scenery out here though, everywhere you look there are beautiful mountains! I'm also really looking forward to getting into more outdoor activities like cross country skiing and more hiking than I was able to do in Maryland.

Since we're still in the middle of house hunting it's hard for me to get excited about living here though. Once we decide on a place then my little housewife self can get started on designing and decorating.

One thing that this trip does have me thinking about is tattoos! I don't usually wear my wedding ring since keeping it on constantly and washing my hands, etc tends to really irritate my skin. While I'm traveling though, I like to proudly display my marital status even though my skin ends up paying the price. My mother-in-law was the first person to suggest having a wedding ring tattooed on because she was shocked that I didn't constantly have my ring on. The more I think about it and the more of my friends get cool tattoos the more I want one and this would be the perfect application! Food for thought... definitely food for thought.
