Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

A Hidden Treasure
It's not every day that I come home from work and all the meaningful elements collide in such a positive way. The weather was just perfect, the day went well, and we both felt like sitting outside for a glass of wine on the patio. It's not at all unusual to have a glass of wine in the evening with dinner. But in this town, living in a condo does not necessarily mean there is a place to sit outside. Even though the actual living square footage is significantly less than what we were used to in Milwaukee, ours is one of the few units that has outdoor space. It is really a treasure, and not taken lightly. It is one of the few requirements we had in mind when we moved. Sometimes you just need to get out of the house and enjoy the weather, and the garden, and have some extra space for storage. And a place to grow the vegetables. Not bad for an urban place, and it reminds me of suburbia.
