The Home Sale Contingency – Wanting to Buy and needing to Sell

Home sale contingencies are a reality for many homebuyers across the country.  Considering that a house is most people’s largest investment, it stands to reason that qualifying to purchase what is likely a bigger and more expensive investment, while holding onto your current property, is just out of reach for many people making moderate incomes.  […]

Land for Sale, Deed Book No 1751

Though I don’t always love the colder months and I’ve often romanticized the idea of living elsewhere, my love of Virginia is unyielding. Growing up along the GW Parkway and Potomac River, I know I took for granted the proximity to our nation’s history and access to all the historical buildings and land that spreads […]

A Dwellus Mini Movie

If someone’s going to come to you with a ridiculously outlandish idea, his name is probably going to be Ryan Zook. You are going to initially balk at the feasibility and think I’ve never done this before! It can’t be done! And then, most likely, 24 hours later, you’ll be almost done making a 2 […]

A Thing of Great Worth

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. […]

How did we get here? Being a mom.

This blog post is dedicated to my beautiful sister-in-law Melissa. She is a dedicated mom to my niece and nephew and has demonstrated a remarkable energy and focus on their health and development since they were born very prematurely almost 5 years ago. It seems almost impossible that they will turn 5 in a few […]

Date Nights

This blog post is dedicated to Angela Cramer. I first met Angela because we are both LANK moms. LANK is the oldest preschool in Reston (over 50 years old!). Angela is authentic and fun loving and I must admit I thought she was pretty straight laced until I saw her break it down on stage […]

Labor Day in Mosaic

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. […]
