This little lamp is the first home furnishing piece I have purchased for my DC living (the pretty dresser it sits on belongs to the girl whose room I am subletting). I walked to a nearby Target to get some supplies after finally reaching my apartment (after a day of travel). I am not a huge fan of overhead lights so a lamp was a must to cast a cozy glow. The shade is a pastel green and I love the clear plastic globes on the stem. I have admired this lamp before and last night it felt so perfect to purchase it!
Today was the first time I drove in DC. I Zipcared in a cute red Prius called "Pea" to Alexandria, VA to deal with paperwork for my new job. Let's just say what should have been a half hour trip turned into an hour and half. DC is confusing for a first-time driver! But I survived and learned a ton about the cityscape.
Tomorrow is my first day of work and I am nervous/excited to see how it will all play out! I have the best feeling of this move being so right. Have you ever gotten that feeling about a place or a person or even your choice of toothpaste? It's pretty fantastic.
