Five Things: March 8, 2023

A past Spring Break at a Shenandoah area farm


1. Looking for last minute Spring Break ideas?  Some suggestions for easy escapes within a few hours’ drive from DC:  Colonial Williamsburg is a really fun (and educational!) time trip.  Great Wolf Lodge, also in Williamsburg, is currently 30% off when you stay two or more nights Sunday – Thursday.  (You could even combine those two trips!)   Shenandoah also makes for a great family getaway destination — we once enjoyed a fantastic Spring Break stay at this beautiful farm with day trips for recreation around the area (more pics here).


2. There are still some time slots available for virtual hand cut portrait sessions with reknown silhouette artist Karl Johnson!  These make for fantastic Mother’s Day & Father’s Day gifts…or any occasion, for that matter.


3. Support a local school and score some great stuff! Bidding has started for Ross Elementary’s silent auction, and you don’t have to be part of the school to bid on nearly 200 items and experiences. These include an incredible baseball packagea pair of tickets to a New York Fashion Week showa Specialized kid’s biketheater, museum and sports tickets; and dozens of restauranthealth & beauty, and other gift certificates.  (PS:  All are also welcome to attend the in-person Starry Night auction on March 18! Tickets available for purchase here.)


4.  Tea Collection’s swimsuits for kids are so cute!  And right now you can get 20% off with the code SWIMWEAR.


5. That is hypocisy at its highest order.


BONUS:  Happy International Women’s Day!  See the round-up of ways to celebrate — today and beyond!
