So I've re-launched my blog in an effort to hopefully lead up to my Etsy shop rebranding and relaunch. Many things have happened since I last posted! I'll try to remember them all. As I'm sure you can see, I've relocated to Washington, DC. I live right in the city, in the Bloomingdale/LeDroit Park neighborhood. I moved down here because I was accepted into a doctoral program at Howard University! I'll be studying the antebellum period in the North and specifically focusing on African American communities of free peoples. It's an under-studied area and a very interesting one. I'm really quite excited! So I moved down to DC in August and moved into a row house with two people, a woman and a man. My roommate Anna works in public health and my roommate Primoz is a grad student at George Washington U. Both are great. Our house is a perfect 19th century brick row house.
