My husband and I arrived a day earlier than the rest of the crew and spent the night at fancy hotel called the Puente Romano.  It was uber luxurious...

gone fishin’

After a crazy week (my new listing had 9 offers.  9!), I’m off to Marbella, Spain.  My friend that lives in London has rented a house so she can experience a “typical British holiday”.  It’s a short walk to the beach and the house has a pool (see below). It looks amazing.  When she initially told me her plans,...

flush mount fixtures for the hallway

I have an ongoing list in my head of stuff I want to change in our home.  Since I’ve started the great bathroom renovations of 2016, I want to do it all at once.

holiday hangover

I love going on vacation but re-entry to the real world is tough.  I’m moving slowly after a wonderful weekend in NC with my family.  There were bike rides, afternoons at the beach, many trashy novels, cocktails, and excellent food.  I feel refreshed but not ready for the DC hustle and bustle.  I definitely have a vacation hangover!  How...
