CarrHomes Hits a Home-Run with Waterford Creek

Oakton_Family_Room_005

We've always felt part of the reasoning behind having an estate was to feel secluded. Unfortunately most of the new communities we've seen offering 3+ acre lots fall short. Don't get me wrong, rolling terrain is great for a golf course or a farm but sitting in the middle of a field isn't my idea of an estate. Thanks to Carr Homes new section … [Read more...]

Dreaming of Warmer Weather

Old Head

I was going to write a post about our awesome school system in LoCo but it was a little difficult to come up with something nice after the way LCPS handled this past Tuesday. Instead let's think happier thoughts and talk about golf, namely my favorite courses and my realistic bucket list. Back in 2005 I went on the trip of a lifetime to … [Read more...]

Tuscarora Football Has Something Special

Tuscarora Huskies State Championship Game

I'm a firm believer that youth sports are about a lot more than what happens on the field or the court. They are a great way to teach our kids lessons which can last their entire lives. Things like working hard, learning to lead, and being accountable for your actions. Sure there are other ways to get these concepts across to your children, … [Read more...]

I Know A Guy

2-guns-clip-01

I've probably said it here before but I am a huge movie buff. When we built our house the only thing I wanted was to make sure we had a home theater. Last week Heather and I watched Two Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. It's about two undercover agents who are trying to bust a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions of dollars. … [Read more...]

Playing a Round at Creighton Farms Golf Club

Jack Nicklaus golf community in Loudoun

I've played a lot of high caliber golf courses, Congressional, Pinehurst, Treyburn (that's Michael Jordan's club in Durham, NC) just to name a few. It takes more than a gate and a high initiation fee to stand out. Along with perfect conditions the layout must be challenging, the setting spectacular, and the service impeccable. It was no … [Read more...]

On Your Mark, Get Set, Trot!

Cross Country

In the land of overachievers that is LoCo, there is no way fitness takes a backseat. No matter how hot or cold it gets we see runners, walkers, and cyclists on the streets. Even though we aren't a family of runners it's hard not to notice the number of Turkey Trots in our area. Around the holidays we all try to find a way to help those in need … [Read more...]
