My name is Amanda Shoemaker – Welcome to My Forgotten Favorite!
This blog serves as a space to feature neglected, obscure, under-appreciated, quirky and amazing people, places, ideas and basically anything else I’m in raptures over at the moment.
For several years now, I’ve been
procrastinating percolating on starting this project and finally decided to just jump in and start.
Nearly every weekend, my partner and I drive out from the city to see nature centers, parks, historic sites, art galleries, wineries and/or just something new. There are so many fantastic, beautiful and generally inexpensive places to visit and things to do in the DC area, I always find more possibilities than we can ever accomplish. Sailing, hiking, climbing, seeing – we try out as many as we can.
Along with my obsession for passionate, talented women and explorers of every stripe, I hope to share my adventures and loves with others.
And I know My Forgotten Favorite needed to be.
Please feel free to let me know your thoughts and any ideas for excursions or reviews, I would be more than happy to cover them.
I hope you enjoy!
