Hail to fall, hail to the Redskins!

September 20, 2017

Fall is always a nostalgic time for me. I can go back as far as I can remember and think of the first days of school each year, each place I’ve lived on a crystal clear early fall day, and all the fun days of pumpkin patches, apple picking, Oshkosh overalls, and cozy family time. […]

For my friend, on 9/11/17

September 11, 2017

I was a Fourth year at the University of Virginia on September 11, 2001.  It was a gorgeous early fall day in Charlottesville and I was getting ready to go to my internship job at the Leadership Development Center.  I was lucky to have a TV in my bedroom that year and I always watched […]

Low Rates for the Taking

September 8, 2017

For the last 2 years, I’ve been hearing from various sources that we should be preparing for rates to increase, especially as we see unemployment rates improve. I think most speculators will honestly say there are so many variables that one factor alone cannot be an accurate predictor of what rates will do. Only the […]

Oatlands Historic House and Gardens

September 6, 2017

On Sunday evening, I had the great pleasure of watching a dear friend get married.  The backdrop was Oatlands Historic House and Gardens in Leesburg, VA.  After two days of downright depressing weather in the DC area, the sun came out with not a trace of humidity and birds were chirping in early fall Virginia […]

Labor Day in Mosaic

September 1, 2017

Today I ate a sandwich from Red Apron Butcher in Fairfax that was among one of the best, messiest sandwiches I’ve had in a very long time. It was called the Beef and Cheddar. In essence, it was infinite roast beef on a small bun with mayo and some divine form of “gourmet” cheese whiz. […]

Harvey

August 30, 2017

I was listening to CNN in the car yesterday, waiting to pick up my 3rd grader from her 2nd day of school.  The anchor woman was talking to a journalist on the ground in Houston about what he was seeing first hand in terms of evacuees, shelters, and the dynamics that come with thousands of […]

In search of the perfect shoe…

June 9, 2015

I want a shoe that is classic yet chic, not too high, not too low, not too round, not too aggressive, not a wedge, not a toothpick, is comfy but does not look like it was made in the Mojave Desert. I want a shoe that works in spring, summer, and fall, works with dresses […]

To Have a Home

June 4, 2015

Homeownership and homelessness are completely separate issues but it’s hard getting around the importance and meaning of the word, or the place, “home.” One definition of “home” is “the place in which one’s domestic affections are centered.” Almost all of us have the experience of being home, going home, knowing our home.   And whatever that […]
