The Arlington Group has perfected the pop-top by elevating a classic Arlington rambler to a sparkling new home with 9 foot ceilings on three levels.
With a complete renovation and reconfiguring, the new home offers a holiday perfect kitchen with crisp white cabinets, quartz tops and stainless appliances. It flows into the family room featuring a coffered ceiling and gas fireplace with over-mantel. A full bath adjoins the den enhancing its versatility. The flexible floorplan continues with a traditional dining room that provides space for home work and learning. A mudroom just off the driveway completes this floor.
Andersen windows admit abundant sunlight and provide views of the nearly quarter acre level lot. Upstairs, the primary bedroom offers a walk in closet, private bath with soaking tub, double vanity and linen closet. The second bedroom has an en suite bath while the third and fourth bedrooms share a bathroom. How convenient to have the laundry on this level, too.
In the lower level, the fifth bedroom and bath provide private space for an in-law, au pair or distance learning student. A big rec room has space for media, gym and play. More storage is in the utility room.
The home is conveniently located between Westover Village and the Lee-Harrison Center and is walkable to Tuckahoe Park and the East Falls Church Metro.

“Probing the highly imaginative, inspired mind of Teresa Oaxaca is not altogether unlike having a present-day conversation with an Old Master,” says Nashville Arts Magazine.
Here is an unusual opportunity to learn from this incredibly talented and accessible artist, at Art House 7’s two-day oil painting workshop in October. Teresa will give 2 portrait painting demonstrations for 3 hours each morning. Students will then be painting from a clothed live model. Teresa will offer individual critiques that focus on materials, techniques, process and artistic vision. You’ll get jazzed up about painting and become more confident about your abilities.
Art House 7, Two-Day Oil Painting Workshop with Teresa Oaxaca. Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. EDT $250.

Validating one’s emotions has the power to heal, transform, and empower. What Is Validation? Every human being has feelings. We all have emotions that change over time, sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. The question isn’t whether we feel; it’s how we handle feelings once they arise.
Building strategies to understand emotions is essential to positive mental health, and validation is one effective skill to practice.
Emotional validation is the process of understanding, embracing, and actively listening to another person’s feelings (or your own).
Understanding someone’s emotions doesn’t necessarily mean you approve of how they are feeling or reacting to something. You can be supportive in acknowledging and validating an emotional experience without agreeing or diminishing it. Validation is a skill to learn and improve over time. It may take practice, but the effort is most certainly worth it. Emotional validation has the power to enhance interpersonal communication and foster strong relationships.
