Slowly becoming home

Over the last month I've been painting my basement apartment and adding some new Ikea items. The newest additions are the large wardrobe in the picture and the bed frame. I still need to finish paiting some of the other areas in the apartment, but it is slowly coming together. I'll have a roommate in a few weeks, so I've been trying to organize things so the place doesn't seem too crowded.

Churches on 16th Street
I decided to go for a walk tonight down 16th Street. One of my favorite things about this street are all the beautiful churches that line it. The sky was gray, the sun just about down, and I was using my cell phone, so the pictures aren't incredible, but at least you'll get the idea. Some of them are a little blurry, due to my simultaneous brisk walk/picture snapping. Just as I was about to turn back toward my house I had the pleasant surprise of running into my friend Audrey. I'm beginning to like DC more and more as I get a little more settled.

Proof of me walking - shadows are proof right?

It was quite dark by this time...

The church above used to belong to the LDS church. I think it belongs to the Unification Church now. It even used to have Angel Moroni on top.

I didn't take this picture tonight, but wanted to add it. The National Cathedral is one of my favorite spots to go.

This church is right next door to where I live.

This church is a few blocks down from me. Don't know if you can really see in the picture, but it nearly burned down last month. The roof is completely burned out. An apartment complex on the left was severely damaged and actually where the fire started. My hometeacher lives in the apartments on the right.

It's ok to brag about...

family right? Today I'll brag about Erin. Check out her blog...

Check out her etsy site and the mural she painted...not too bad eh?

So instead of being jealous I will just brag and then ask her to give me discounts when I need her to paint my room or make me a baby blanket.
