This past weekend was the opening day for Vienna Little League. It’s a reminder of some normalcy, some fun for the kids, and it was just a really beautiful weekend to enjoy it… until I got home Saturday evening after watching two games (both of my kids play).

My 6-year-old had eyes swollen to the size of the baseballs he just threw. Lucky for all of us, there’s Dr. Karen Kaufman. I see her as well because my son inherited his affliction from me.

Dr. Kaufman is a local Vienna mom, a veteran, female entrepreneur and all-around very kind human. She’s also a fantastic doctor.

My first consult with her lasted two hours because we talked about everything so she had a full picture of what kind of care I needed. Since when does a doctor do that?

If it’s time you stopped ignoring your allergies — or to stop suffering from them year after year — go see her. She’s located in Vienna at 8320 Old Courthouse Road, Suite 310.

You’ll probably see me there with a swollen-eyed child this week.

Learn more about Dr. Kaufman on her website.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many.

He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
