A chance to live

Life. It’s something so many of us take for granted. It’s hard to think it’s something that others spend every day fighting for. Well it was awesome to see that so many in our community continue to give those people, specifically children. Hundreds came together to help give the chance to live on. At Chance for Life you really get to see goodness of our area at work. It was a wonderful event inspired by beautiful Kennedy Snyder. She is now 12 and still working everyday to beat pediatric spinal cord cancer. Chance for Life has benefited her fight and other kids like her by donating hundreds of thousands to research. Thank you to everyone who came out for a wonderful night of poker and dancing at the City Tavern Club to make a difference. It was great to have the support of my News4 colleagues too! Love ya’ll!

Day at the farm

Breathtaking. It’s the best word to describe the view in Bluemont Virginia. This past weekend I took Adora to Great Country Farms for their annual Easter Egg hunt and Marshmallow Harvest. It  was such a special day. In addition to meeting the Easter Bunny we got to feed the farm animals like the emu and ponies. The cutest sight were the new litter of piglets.. who had me empathizing with momma pig see pic and LOL! Great Country Farms is open throughout the year for families and has a gazillion things for kids to do. I plan to return to check out the vineyard for a little wine tasting when things get warmer. I love discovering new nuggets of fun in the area. It really is like a whole new world just a scenic car ride away. Watch my report on WUSA9’s morning show below…

Tickled Pink in Potomac

I cannot even begin to tell you how overwhelmed with emotion I am with all the support I’ve gotten from friends, family and co-workers over the last 8 months. My sisters Jenny and Tricia threw me a beautiful shower at good friend Dr. Alex’s Potomac home.

It was more than perfect– it was as I told the crowd– a room filled with so much love. Wish I could post the hundreds of pictures and special moments captured by REVAMP.com’s Daniel Swartz and Rita Lawrence with Bitsy Baby Photography. Please check out their galleries. Sweet thanks to Frosting: A Cupcakery for sending devilishly good dessert. No cupcake was left behind. Shout out to the gorgeous Lauren Von Der Pool and staff with green catering company Von Der Pool Gourmet.  I didn’t learn til after the party that the ‘beef wontons’ were vegan! I would’ve never known. They were delicious!

The best part of all? Seeing so many women from different phases of my life- high school, college, SC, DC, News, philanthropy and  mamas-to-be coming together to help me celebrate my first step into motherhood. Thank you everyone from me and baby “A”. Read more about the shower at REVAMP.com where Leigh Macdonald wrote a very kind recap of the party.
