Remodeling Safely Despite the Pandemic

Area families enjoying their new spaces and thankful they moved forward with their projects Throughout the pandemic, the safe harbor of our homes has come to mean so much more than ever before.  With the increased amount of time spent around the house, we are enjoying the things that are working well, and not surprisingly, have become laser-focused on the areas that need anything from a little refresh to a major renovation.  But, as folks remain cautious about coronavirus and the related variants, many question whether remodeling can be done safely at this time.  The answer is yes when safety… Read More >

Sharing Our Favorite Things – How Our Team Likes to Keep Fit

We love fitness. So much so that a recent BOWA strategy retreat opened with a morning bike ride which included a loop around the monuments and the National Mall. Car and pedestrian traffic was very light, and it reminded us how much our city has to offer. Everywhere we looked, folks were working out in and around our beautiful public spaces! In addition to runners and bike riders, there were many clusters of small groups exercising together. We also spotted personal trainers sending their clients up and down the steps of the National Gallery of Art. Even though fitness clubs… Read More >

Sharing Our Favorite Things – Our Favorite Movies

There’s nothing like a big, musical movie number to get your toes tapping. It’s even better when the leading man and leading lady nail the big jump!  In 1987’s iconic film Dirty Dancing the last dance of the summer is filled with the joy of music and movement. We cant wait to be able to dance together again. Until then we think this dancer’s solo interpretation of the classic scene may have you rolling in the aisles.
