You can’t walk away from a moment like this and not feel empowered! We had a star panel of women leaders to kick off the inaugural Junior League of Washington Women’s Leadership Luncheon. I love how April Young, the Managing Director of Hercules Technology Growth Capital said that the idea is to continue to make progress so one day we’re not having women leadership lunches.. but rather leadership lunches! The personal stories of struggle, success, failure and humility really captivated the room. Hats off to our other rockstar panelists Bhavana Boggs of Ritz Carlton, WeddingWire’s Kara DelVecchio, Kelli Richardson Lawson from JOY Media Collective and the fab Cathy Merrill Williams of Washingtonian Media!

Fall is filled with invigorating things! Scarves, crunchy leaves, pumpkin spice, apple cider the list is endless when it comes to things we love about now. We recently went to Cox Farms in Centreville VA to check out it’s new Enchanted Forest and pick some pumpkins. Here’s list of other great places to check out depending where you live.
Great Country Farms Bluemont VA
Butler’s Orchard Germantown MD
Waters Orchard Germantown MD
Marker Miller Orchards Winchester VA
If you go to Cox Farms be sure to try the slides (as an adult too!), the apple cider, take the hayride and check out the new Enchanted Forest. You can walk the trail at night too which will make it extra spooky. We loved the sleeping dragon along the way and the upside house. Oh, don’t forget to stop by the Market Place for your pumpkin too!
Enchanted forest features fairy tale themes
Grab kettle corn for the hayride!
Kennedy Snyder has spent 11 of her 13 years fighting spinal cord cancer. Her undeniable spirit and optimism has helped her in the fight and inspired what has become the biggest charity poker tournament in Washington.
