the search is on..

I'm coming up on my two year anniversary in DC and I finally feel like I can call DC home. Although since being here, I've had 3 different "homes". I've literally lived in three different places and now Aaron and I are looking to move into a new place at the end of the summer which will be the 4th time I've moved in 2 years. WOOF. Seriously, WOOF. Moving is THE WORST. Al;though we're looking at places with the mindeset that we'll stay in this place until we're ready to move out of the city (so a few years down the road), all I can wrap my mind around one.more.move. And one more apartment search! In DC, apartment searches can be as exhausting as the actual move itself since the market is so darn competitive and places get snatched up so freaking quickly!

So we're off to check out another building this afternoon and I'm hoping I fall in love because my home decor pinterest board is practically begging me to get to pinning! Lets be real here: moving schmoving, I just want to decorate! Cross your fingers for us!
