Happy Thanksgiving Arlington!
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year for many reasons. First, it is almost always spent with family, and I cherish time with family, especially because of how caught up in the fast pace of Northern Virginia things can get.
Second, the food is always amazing, and good food always brings people together. Third, tradition — there is just something to be said for a predictable meal with familiar people, coupled with plenty of relaxing afterward. Fourth, and I’ll elaborate a bit on what I’m grateful for below, but just the reminder that we all have so much to be grateful for and a day dedicated to just that!
I have much to be thankful for and it’s amazing how focusing on that can improve moods and outlooks on life. My three children are growing up fast, and it is truly a joy to be a part of it and watch as they learn and transform. My wife Laura and I moved our family into a lovely new home this year (I know a great Realtor, if you need one) and this year the Andors Real Estate Group helped 55 families with their real estate needs! Laura’s health coaching business has really taken off as well, and we’re both thrilled to be helping others through our work in different ways.
As you can imagine, even real estate agents look forward to the slower pace this week, where the market really does take a breather and we can all rest and reset. Some homes will go under contract this week, but very few new listings will hit the market. The expectation from sellers is that buyers are out of town or otherwise preoccupied, so it’s better to wait a week or two.
I’ll keep it short and sweet this week so that you can enjoy the time this weekend however you see fit. Whether it’s large family gatherings, travel, staying in or maybe you’re stuck working, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and I look forward to resuming a normal schedule next week for Just Listed!

“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.
