Old friend, new locale

This has been the month of visitors, here in DC.  Not just because of the Cherry Blossom festival which brings hundreds of thousands of people into the city, but because several of my friends and family members have come to visit us in the last few weeks!

Aaron was in town interviewing for a job at the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT).  In case you are wondering, no, it's not the same as the organization where I work - the CDA.  Anyway... we got a couple of days with Aaron in DC around his big interview and tried to make the most of it before jetting off to New York.  We took him to Good Stuff Eatery for burgers and milkshakes, took a long stroll on the Mall around midnight, and spent a pleasant evening introducing Aaron to a few of our friends at Buffalo Billiards.  All-in-all a good time... though too short.

Fortunately, Aaron got the job!!  So he and his fabulous girlfriend Amber will be moving to DC in August!  This is fortunate for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that I took exactly zero decent pictures of Aaron's trip.  (That's one of his talents - avoiding photos.)  But now we'll have ample time to remedy that situation.

I love this post, for the obvious reasons. Thank you again for showing him around and giving him a fun time. I know he wished he could have stayed longer, but life happens. I am beyond excited to be moving, as you know, and I am daydreaming about it all the time. You may be off in Italy when we're moving in, but I am going to have a big, lovely dinner party with all our DC friends just as soon as our kitchen things are unpacked. Look at me, already planning a dinner party for August.
