THE GREATEST HOSTESS GIFTS YOU CAN SCORE IN DC

If you’ve hosted anybody in your humble abode, you can probably share in reminiscing about the highs and lows of hosting. Not ringing any bells? Let me give you an example. High: Having guests praise your amazing ability to pick out high-brow snacks from Whole Foods AND making them believe that yeah, you totally eat like this all the time. Low: Having everyone turn to you after they devour your perfectly laid out charcuterie board, with that “what’s next?” look in their eyes. A cheese board is an event in and of itself, people!

THE BEST PLACES TO WINE DOWN IN DC

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend clearly had never met me and seen the way I pine over something else entirely: vino. Sure, I love a little bling, but not the way I downright adore a lot of wine. I like it in red or white. I can dig a 2-buck Chuck just as much as I can swirl around a $18 glass and pretend I know what tannins are and why they make me question my life choices the next day. But, no matter how bad the headache or how deep the holes in my pocket are, I always come back for another pour (a heavy one, preferably). And, the truth is, I’m not alone.

THIS WEEKEND: ALL THINGS CHERRY BLOSSOM

Tis’ the season for beautiful white and pink flowers, albeit a very short season but a season none the less. If you haven’t had a chance to venture down to the Tidal Basin you may want to hurry. As of this past Sunday they were starting to lose their fluff, but they were still lovely.

There is a lot going on to celebrate our oxygen making gift from Japan, and get you in the spring spirit. THIS WEEKEND: ALL THINGS CHERRY BLOSSOM
