My name is Elaine and my cat’s name is Burrito.  We (and my husband, David) are moving to Chicago from Washington, DC in less than two weeks!  David and I are both from Chicago (Burrito, as a rescue cat, is from the Washington DC-area, I presume), but I’ve lived in DC for nearly 8 years.  I moved here to work on Capitol Hill in 2009 and, for the last two years, have worked at a foreign policy think tank.

This blog will chronicle our move and beyond!  Since I won’t be working (at least initially) in Chicago, I’m hoping this blog will provide a creative outlet and keep me busy.
