Ever since 2010, I’ve spent just about every Sunday between April and August with the Near Misses as part of the Glover Park Co-Ed Softball League. I’ve watched teammates come and go for various reasons but also seen cute little babies turn into small little people with huge personalities. I’ve met many adorable neighborhood dogs and have had endless conversations about Nationals baseball. I’ve arrived early for a game and stayed way after just to watch other teams in the league duke it out all while kicking back and relaxing with other Misses.
There’s nothing more relaxing than spending a Sunday afternoon outside. Nothing. The thing that makes it even better is that I get to spend it with the hooligans in that picture there.
We didn’t win the league tourney this year but we did get fourth place two years running now. ‘Tis no easy feat, let me tell you.
I didn’t get to play much this season due to my healing right foot (that I broke back in February) but I was still at the diamond at 39th and Calvert as much as possible working to keep a solid book (to which I’ve become famous for among the league…I guess most other teams don’t keep a real box score…I can’t even imagine going to a game without keeping an accurate book so that just blows my mind — tbridge knows what I’m talking about).
I’ll miss softball Sundays but at least there’s always next year!

This also happened.


Playing the drums was the best workout my arms have ever had and it was also the most fun thing EVER. Random night in the city. Had a blast. Gotta love making music.

We’ve always been a bit of an anarchic collective: individual writers who came together to form the site organically over a few pints at Fox & Hounds (our beloved Passenger wasn’t due until 2009). Our goal? To share with you our unique experiences and stories about our lives in the District. Some of us had already lived here a long time, while others were just getting started on their DC adventure. We founders created something we’re all passionately grateful for – and we were joined by absolutely amazing writers over those six years since July 4, 2008. More than ten thousand articles have been written, by more than 70 authors, and the presence of We Love DC in our lives has been an exceptional one. In some cases, a life-saving one.

Yet life has changed radically for all of us, and we feel it’s a good time to wrap up the site with a bow.

Wait, not a bow. A Thank You Tour.

All Good Things: A Farewell Tour | We Love DC

No, you’re crying in your living room.

This is the right decision. This gives us time to wrap what needs be wrapped, and go out on top.

It doesn’t mean it’s not a little hard.

Also, this.

It’s been quite a journey.

Pretty much me at Rachel's shows. 

And this is exactly why we&#8217;re friends. She&#8217;s the Amy to my Tina.

Three thoughts on live music on a Tuesday.

  • I can’t watch this stuff without a shit-eating grin. It is impossible to see people doing something they love so much and are so happy to do, most of them at the end of a long-ass work day, and not also be filled joy. Forever a stage mom.
  • Need to find (re-find?) my also happy thing like that.
  • If I could be as honest with myself as they all are with a room full of strangers… 

Best stage mom ever, right here.
