From our Founder
Dear Posh Seven Readers,
Spring is here. This is my favorite time of year where everything in Loudoun County starts to change and bloom. Tree branches get filled with amazing tones of pink and purple. The communities come out of hibernation as we begin to see more bikes, scooters, and wagons on the cul-de-sacs. Parks are filled with laughter, and tennis courts start their normal movement as I also take myself outside every chance I get.
Let me tell you a little about my ever-evolving spring rituals
I don’t have little kids anymore. When I did, we were at the park, biking, hiking, running, chasing, playing and eating outside. We left in the morning and came home in the afternoon to eat an early dinner and hit the sack.
As they got even older, they went to school, and I was eager to pick them up so we could have lunch at the park, play and then go home. Only to continue playtime on our street, until the last possible minute before dinner.
When they got older, I would often find myself on the deck with my husband, working from home, sitting at local coffee shops and dining at any restaurant that had heating and outdoor seating. We are positive people here, so I am not going to talk about the rain and pollen.
This spring is a little different for me. My husband has a new position in his company and travels more than I care to admit. My son is 17.8 years old and won’t come outside to save his life, that’s if he is home. My 12.5-year-old is too busy with school, volleyball and working out she has zero left when she gets home– only enough time for homework. And then there is me. I still have spring fever. I want to be outside.
It is 2019, my new spring ritual involves my two poodles, Jacques and Nina. They are named after Nina Simone and Jacques Brel. The three of us go on outdoor adventures. I will admit, I am going to be every cliche in every stage of my life. So stay tuned for the ‘crazy cat lady’ stage, for now, I am the dog lady. Anyway, life changes, seasons change, we change, but one thing remains consistent, and that is change itself. So enjoy your little ones, your furry friends, your outdoor spaces and yourself. Life is too short and to be outside in the spring is always a good idea. Enjoy our Spring Issue.
