About Me

Kelley Smith

In the years since starting this blog, I am a firm believer that seeing people in their home towns is what helps us understand each other. While we aren’t traveling very far right now, I am so excited for the day we are all visiting each other again. But at the same time, I am back to the reason I started this blog. Today, the focus is on supporting our neighbors, our favorite local businesses, and everything that makes Washington, DC wonderful. Now, more than ever, I will do my best to stay true to this mission.
