Azia's Picks 12-20-19 by Azia Wiggins
Winter is officially in the air in the Capital City. We pushed through a few blustery mornings and frigid days this week to another most awaited Friday! I know we're all still trying to process and digest the national news of our very own President's official impeachment and have likely had some fiery peer conversations concerning the topic. We can surely keep our eyes on the political ball while simultaneously remaining present this weekend in the task of rest and reset. Preparation is key in the manifestation of success for any plan, including our varying agendas for the weekend. Let's try to prepare for the upcoming inclement weather and see if we can stay dry while indulging in some much-deserved merriment. Check out my event lineup to get you started!
