Reston Real Estate: Happy Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving in Reston. Everyday, I am truly grateful to live in such an amazing  place. In fact, my love of Reston had much to do with my decision to become a real estate agent, and everything to do with my decision to focus only on Reston Real Estate.

Helping people find a dream home in the place I call home really can’t be called work

As I’m getting ready for Thanksgiving this year, I’ve been reflecting on some of the things about Reston I especially love.

1. I love looking out of my office window at Lake Anne and watching the model boat regattas or couples paddling toward the fountain in a paddle boat.

2. I love going to the Farmer’s Market every weekend and buying fresh produce and meats from local farmers.

3. I love walking on the Reston Association paths—whether I have a destination like Reston Town Center in mind, or I’m just wandering.

4. I love running into friends at the grocery store or when I’m out to dinner.

5. I love the civic activism, and how people in Reston care about this place and want it to flourish; even when we’re disagreeing on how that should look.

There is more that I love about Reston, but those five things sum it up for me. Reston is a fabulous place not only to live, but to have a full life. Today, I feel very grateful.

I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with laughter, love, and gratitude.

He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
