Growing up in Bulgaria, I had zero interest in gardening. When my grandparents planted onions, I played with the cats; when they picked tomatoes, I read a book perched on the peach tree; when my whole family was busy canning veggies for winter, I reluctantly helped while thinking of an excuse to do something else. … Continue reading »

Fall Festival Downtown: Get Your Christmas Shopping Done In Time

I had to miss Fall Festival last year because I was in Europe (terrible, I know!). However,  this year I planned my trips better, and I walked the streets for 4 hours with the camera. Such a hard life… 😉 For more about the festival and all Downtown Washington Inc. events, click here.

Did you make it to the Chili Cook Off downtown tonight? There were so many booths this year and so much chili to taste! What I loved the most was this year’s theme, Fairy Tales, and all the people in costumes walking down the street. I think we should do this more often. Take a … Continue reading »
