Get Some Culture

Hello Everyone!  My body has spoken.  I have to get some well-deserved rest.  I have been hitting it hard!  From attending my sister’s graduation, hitting NYC for the FELA play and Wonder-FULL party, reconnecting with college friends at my alumni reunion, visiting family in North Carolina and coordinating and celebrating the boo’s birthday during the Memorial Day weekend…WHEW! I have four days to get it right for the weekend.  So plenty of fluids, fruits, veggies and a Zumba class! 🙂  You can’t keep “ThatKellieGirl” down for too long.  So here is the line-up.

The DC Jazz Festival begins today for its 6th year.  It is the largest music festival in Washington, D.C. and one of the most highly anticipated cultural events in the nation. Originally named the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, the 13-day festival promotes music integration in school curricula, and supports outreach to expand and diversify the audience of jazz enthusiasts.  The festival also features the return of the highly popular Jazz in the ‘Hoods which includes performances at more than 30 restaurants,clubs, hotels and art galleries across the city.

Now, I have to finish my book, Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez for the book club.  I guess there is no rest for the weary.  However, I wouldn’t have it any other way! 🙂
