Big Announcement!

I have very exciting news to share! I have accepted a job offer from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in Washington DC! I am going to work with all of the teams that sign up for the different events such as Walk MS, Bike MS and Challenge Walk MS. I could not be more excited about this new adventure!

As many of you know I have been in San Diego. I have grown up in California so moving across the country is going to be a major change for me. Right now I am in the middle of my road trip across country!

I have decided to pack up my car with as much stuff as possible and drive across the country with my friend Amber. I have never driven across the southern part of the country, so it will be neat to see new places. I am really looking forward to it!

Blogging will probably be light during this transition to the east coast and I wont be able to respond to any of your comments on here or facebook, but know that I will eventually get back to regular schedule of blogging.

PS. I am still looking for housing in DC or around, so if you know of anything please let me know!


  1. Price-wise, you're probably best off living in a VA or MD suburb and commuting into DC. Living close to metro lines is really helpful. (The Leesburg VB outlet isn't too far away, either!)

  2. Congrats on the job! I'm a DC-er and as the person above said, a VA or MD suburb may be the best option price wise. I've done the commute from the MD suburbs before and it's not too bad.

    There are affordable places in DC, you just have to be conscious of what neighborhoods you are looking at. Some offer more than others!

  3. Wow how exciting Alison!!! As someone who has made a cross country move before - from MI to CA, I can say that while there is an adjustment period, it's a really exciting venture. I am so glad we got to experience living in a totally different environment, culture, and part of the country. There is so much to do in DC that I know you are going to have a blast discovering all the things to do!

  4. Congrats on the job! My family and I are a military family and we have been stationed both in CA and now MD. We love this area but miss TX dearly. Hope you get to see the Cherry Blossoms. They are beautiful in person.
