Coming Home: Glad to be back in Great Lakes but will miss the Chesapeake Bay

Well, I have relocated back to my home state of Michigan. While I love my home state, I have to say that I had very mixed feelings about returning. Feels a little weird because after 3 years in the Washington D.C. area, I had become accustomed and fond of the region (not to mention the milder winters). My top reason for returning to MI was economic and family. Cost of living in DC region is really high and it was really difficult to make ends meet with a young family.

Being a news junkie and always interested in the nation's politics, working in the capital of Maryland and then in downtown DC, I found it quite exciting and intellectually fulfilling. So I will miss Maryland and will really try to maintain the great contacts and friendships I made there. The BICEP Bulletin will still provide new and commentary about and for the Chesapeake Bay.
