I shan’t give away the details, but I was planning my husband’s birthday earlier today and thinking about the logistics of getting to and from the destinations I have planned.  The fact that I know we can get easily to and fro, without looking for parking multiple times or worrying about having too many cocktails […]

Front Door Crush

January 16, 2018

When we moved into our house, the first major project we did was switch out the front doors.  I say “major” not because it was a lengthy project but because it completely transformed the outside of our home, as well as the daylight coming into our home.  For weeks, I had seen the listing for […]

A Thing of Great Worth

January 12, 2018

I’ve been listening to an episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast with Simon Sinek who is the author of Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action. He’s a self-described “unshakable optimist.” He has a deep belief in building bright futures and that we all yearn to do that together, not alone. […]

January 8, 2018

January is here!  17 days off from school for winter break, 2 days in school, and 5 more days off!  It’s been such a wonderfully full time with family.  So many moods and so many grievances, lots of laughs, a million “I’m bored” complaints fielded, too much Amazon Prime to speak of, a carbohydrate frenzy, […]

January 5, 2018

We live in a transient area with a lot of options for housing at many different income levels.  On the whole, it’s an expensive metropolitan region and even people who work full time can find it impossible to find housing that they can afford on a monthly basis.  Although some people may disagree with suburban […]

January 3, 2018

The weekend is almost upon us, DC Metro friends!  And what’s better than planning some fun excursions on the coattails of an epically long winter break.  The good news is if the end of the holiday season has you feeling down, there are still a lot of venues doing Christmas light events through this weekend.  […]

December 15, 2017

I was strolling down a shoe aisle at Target, looking for a size 6 toddler shoe for a little girl whose family is homeless and receiving services from the local Reston homeless shelter, Embry Rucker.  I found a pair of size 6 sneakers and opened the box.  Inside was a pair of shoes, each about […]

The Big Why

October 26, 2017

I work for an organization, Keller Williams Realty, that is always asking “why” do we do what we do? This business is exciting and dynamic and very challenging, especially on a psychological level. As a Realtor, you must be prepared to be really good at your job and still not get everyone’s business. You can […]

Lake Anna Oasis

October 18, 2017

Lake Anna is a special place that I first visited in 2014. That first trip down was raucous experience with a handful of colleagues from Dwellus. We went on boat rides, road jet skis, swam in the lake, dove off the dock, ate steamed crabs, fell off our bar stools, and enjoyed some Zen time […]
