What a weekend it was! It was filled with a lot of excitement with a girl’s night out, seeing Cinderella at the Kennedy Center and dinner out at a new restaurant in Georgetown that I have never been to. There were also more important things that took place too. I had a chance to once again go to the Women’s March and walk alongside thousands of strong and powerful women through the streets of DC. What a year it has been and I felt like the march helped me press the reset button on my priorities and my desire to take action. When I got home I immediately started researching how I can become more involved in my community. It is so easy to get swept away in the everyday routine, so I want to keep this energy moving forward.
I am so fortunate to live in an area that is so rich in history and I feel like I have not even tapped into it all even though I have lived here for about 7 years. These next couple months I want to make it a mission to get more involved in my community, but also go to places that I have never been before that play major roles in our nations history like the Library of Congress, Ford’s Theatre, the African American History Museum, National Museum of Women in the Arts, and more. So this is where you come in…I need your help. Share with me what organizations you are volunteering for and giving your time too. Also, what historic spots in DC do you recommend?
