Some of you may know already, but for those who don’t: By God’s grace only, I got accepted to Georgetown University for their Accelerated Nursing Degree program and will be moving to DC this January. I’ll be leaving Seattle at the end of November and would love to see you all before I go and dance as much as I can before I’m out. 🙂

Would love to make it a potluck so please bring something to eat or drink or music to dance to. We’ll be going all night, so come early and eat, or late, we’ll be here. I’m clearing the floor so we have as much dancing space as possible!

Date: Friday November 19th

Address: 3659 Interlake Ave N, Seattle 98103

Time: 7pm – Late Night
I will miss you all and this amazing city. It’s been an incredible 10 years here. 🙂
