Freedom Friday: The March Madness Edition

Hello Good Folks!


So tonight, my alma mater, Ohio University will be dancing in St. Louis. I am so proud and excited for our team. My home state of Ohio has been showing off with four Ohio teams making it to the Sweet Sixteen–Ohio University, Ohio State University, Xavier University and the University of Cincinnati. However, I am rooting solely for my Bobcats to make it to the Final Four. Let’s see what happens! 🙂

In the meantime, there are many festivals going on this weekend. Celebrating 100 years, The Cherry Blossom Festival kicked of this week as well as the Split This Rock Festival. On Saturday, for one day only, the Washington National Cathedral opens for a tower climb for visitors to climb 333 stairs to the top for a breathtaking view of the District. And the DC Environmental Film Festival closes out on Sunday.

Be safe and enjoy the weekend!

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl 🙂
