Washington DC was an incredible place to be during the Pandemic because it was empty unlike anything I ever imagined. I took the opportunity to walk all over the city and enjoy the beauty without the crowds. Now that things are opening back up, the crowds are coming back but I thought it would be fun to share some fun things to do that aren’t just the main tourist attractions. It’s fun to see the city in a different way! Here are 10 ideas I highly recommend to enjoy DC a little differently.
Do you ever feel like being a parent is the hardest job in the world? I am not just talking about the sleepless nights, cleaning up all types of bodily fluids or the many late night projects. It is the fact that you are raising a human that you want with all of your heart and soul to one day go out into this world and do amazing things. My son (and oldest child) turns 18 this week!
It’s hard to believe this week marks one year since we launched Ginger Threads Collections! When we envisioned opening a sustainable fashion boutique the Pandemic was not in sight. We created a logo, built a website and started finding brands to partner with, even attending a huge fashion market in Las Vegas! As the inventory started coming in, the Covid-19 cases around the world started to climb. The boutique officially launched as planned on March 18, 2020 as the United States went under a stay-at-home order. It certainly wasn’t ideal, but it was too late to turn back!
As a sustainable fashion boutique it is important to us who we partner with.As a result, we have found some pretty incredible companies who are making a really big difference one accessory at a time. People have become our biggest joy in this business... both our partners and our customers.We picked just five artisans whose mission’s are all about making a difference to share with you today. Your support of us and of them, helps support that mission and for that we are forever grateful!
I’ve always said - one last chance may be an opportunity of a lifetime! What if you get fired and find your true calling! Anything can be a positive if you take a different look. But most of all, take that chance because you don’t always know if it is your one last chance!
