Can you see it?

The Washington Monument?? It's that little thing sticking up out of the trees behind me. So, this isn't the greatest picture, I know, and my face is covered in rain and my hair is getting soaked and if you look closely you can see the rain ripples in the river. That's the Potomac and this is me getting off on the wrong metro stop trying to navigate my way to Trader Joe's and then buying more food than I really wanted to carry home. Oh and committing a fashion crime by wearing my running shoes with jeans, but I had no other choice since the rest of my shoes are sitting in a box at the post office, undeliverable on this drizzly Veterans Day. But really, I had a huge smile on my face the whole time, because I'm here and this place is amazing and the shopping on M Street is fantastic and calling my name! (I will resist.) I think I'm really going to love living here!

looks like it's going to be a fabulous time for you. hopefully the weather gets a little better before it gets worse. i'm always amazed when i go to big cities and i see all the natives walking around in high heels and other uncomfortable looking shoes. but i guess if you do it everyday then it's not a problem. you can always tell the non-natives since they are wearing the running shoes!! you'll catch on miss charity. loving your adventures. any plans to come to austin to visit a special someone anytime soon (and while that could be me, i'm not referring to myself!)
