Marshmallows & weddings: D.C.'s blogs

By Washington Post editors

Good afternoon. We're halfway through the week. The snow we thought we'd be stuck shoveling instead headed north.

Later this week, I'll have a roundup of a various service projects related to King's birthday. But for today -- we've got a mix of fun and informative posts.

One way to keep up is to check back here tomorrow for another set of great posts from our D.C.-area bloggers.
