One Loudoun: A Fun Destination for Families

One Loudoun hosted a wonderful media happy hour on April 27th to tell us all about their upcoming events at the bustling center in Ashburn, touted as Loudoun’s new Downtown. The event was held at the new Matchbox and we were treated to amazing beverages and a smorgasbord of delicious appetizers. The sliders were definitely a hit! Even better than the food and drinks was the company. It was great to meet so many bloggers from all over Northern Virginia.
