Today we woke up at 7am (it’s Saturday) for “Servathon,” an effort to bring together young people in the DC area and give back to the community. It’s basically a morning of community service (8,000 youngsters this year) and then a bar crawl in the Dupont Circle area after.
In 2009 I cleaned a library in Chinatown. Last year we painted the map of the United States on a elementary school playground. This year we painted murals inside an elementary school. (I can’t take credit for this good habit, a very good friend has been a very good influence)
Last year, while I painted certain states pink, a tall, funny guy named Nick purposely picked pink paint too and followed me around the map until I gave him my phone number. The rest is history <3
Tomorrow I am headed to the farmers market down the road with my camera. I plan on getting some bright photos and fresh ingredients for a spring salsa!
