I've lived in Arlington for years, yet somehow have never been to Arlington Porchfest. I finally went. It's pretty nice. More photos and a write-up on Icons of Arlington.
After a little break I'm back with a new post for Icons of Arlington! I was homeschooled, so I've actually never set foot in Ottoson, but I've spent some time in these woods and it sounds like a whole lot of other people have too. An interesting little place.
11 years ago, two women opened a nonprofit resale shop in the Fox branch of the Arlington Library. After an unexpected closure last summer, they re-opened it last week. Read about what happened in my latest post on Icons of Arlington.

Toward the end of my summer at Arlington Public News of ACMi, we held did a remote newscast at the Jefferson Cutter House in Arlington Center. I was not feeling so great, so I had to sit out for most of it, but they did a great job without me!
One of my fellow interns, Erica, planned and executed a standup comedy show in the studio at ACMi. Here are some pictures I took during the setup. Tragically, I didn't get any good photos of Erica herself.
