I've lived in Washington, DC for 20 years and absolutely love the city; my husband has been here for about a decade. Originally, I'm from Texas and people say I still exude the warmth of the South (and the efficiency of the North:)). My husband, Jordan, is from the Seattle area and has its laid back, fun spirit. He's lived in many countries (Panama, Columbia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Italy, Romania) for his previous career with the UN World Food Program so we always enjoy hosting international guests. He continues to work in international agricultural development while I spend my time working on urban education reform.
We love this vibrant, ever changing neighborhood. DC has become more dynamic over the years, with incredible cultural offerings (theater, museums, galleries, films, lectures) and restaurants that can satisfy even the most sophisticated foodie. It's a magical place - come discover all of its hidden gems beyond the obvious historic landmarks and stunning monuments.
