It's been a lovely two days in the District, I'll not lie. I arrived not super exhausted, proceeded to Ebs and saw my people, ate lunch with a friend took a short nap, swam, ate dinner with my Hyla, slept, more Ebs, more lunch with people, more dinner with Hyla, more swimming.
And now my husband is on his way here. Yay.
I was very afraid coming back I would feel that I miss this place and how I lived here so much that I would want to stay. Sure, Luke would be a strong lure otherwise, but I was afraid I would feel ... overcome ... by the past.
I am relieved, however, that that is not the case after all. Walking down my streets, past the buildings I once haunted, seeing people I used to spend all my waking moments with, swimming in my awesome (cold!) public pool ... and I realized that really I don't miss my former life here so much as I miss the people and the relationships.
I feel that is acceptable.
And now, for (Nolan) wedding fun.
Speaking of wedding fun, guess what I scored? My wedding photos!!! Woohoo! I'll upload some here later, meanwhile they are on Facebook. Check it out.
