Since today is Earth Day, we're all focused on consuming less and recycling more. That something less than you haven't consumed today, can be put towards helping a child be impacted by the arts in the same way you have been. Even $5 or $10 goes a long way.
A very worthy DC Arts organization is seeking donations to send kids to Theater Camp. And my very talented friend, Julia Smith, is helping them. Click here to read more.
The Theatre Lab is committed to transforming lives through theatre education. We are the largest and most comprehensive theatre education program in Washington, DC, providing both the artistic and real-life benefits of quality theatre education to more than 1,400 youth and adults each year.
Our Summer Camps for Kids
Our Summer Acting Camps for Kids, for children ages 5–13, are taught by the area’s best professional theatre artists and educators. Camp activities are designed to spark children’s imagination, build their self-confidence and stretch their skills—all in a fun and friendly environment. From exploring African and Eastern theatre traditions to diving into Shakespeare and putting it all together in a public performance, it’s an experience that a child will never forget.

I know everyone picks two wedding colors to make their theme. Like it's your introductory statement of yourself as a bride. "Hi, I'm black and coral in June." Which is all fine and dandy, but this wedding threw that box out the window and just used them all. And it totally works! Check out the full post with the gorgeous photos here. (Coolest guest book ever, btw).

White slip covered furniture means your country dirt is wash and wear on your furniture.
Can we stop and talk about this dining table for a minute. The epitome of country chic.
Sitting in this tub would make everything else in the world disappear.

I'm leaning towards a DIY project with a go bold or go home approach. Life motto's should make for good headboards too, right?

Anyways, back to the drinking. Eat local/Drink local...not just a passing fad. Eastern Shore based, Blackwater Distilling, (first in the state of MD since prohibition) recently launched Sloop Betty. This pretty faced pinup is also backed by a commitment to use local ingredients and pursue organic certification. Still a little rare in DC, check here to find it.
I loved that their recently launched website gives some great drink recipes with party-perfect names for your next signature cocktail:
Whose ready for happy hour?
