Ahhh — Valentine’s Day. A day to appreciate the ones you love. Especially those who love you unconditionally — your pets!

Jenna Gotch of Passionately Pets keeps the pets of Alexandria happy and healthy. She and her trained staff provide professional dog walking, pet sitting and house-sitting services.

Passionately Pets was created to serve pet owners with busy lives (which I think includes all of us, right?!)

During dog walking, pet sitting, and overnight visits, a Passionately Pets team member will spend quality time with your pet, providing exercise, socialization, and mental stimulation. They also know how to tell if your pet needs veterinary attention.

Their goal? To make you feel comfortable while you are at work or away, knowing your pet is safe and happy (even Cupid uses them!)

To learn more, book a service, or purchase the perfect Valentine’s Day treat for your pet, visit PassionatelyPets.com and be sure to follow them on Instagram!

Where can you find people smiling, praying, and cursing at the same time?

The gym! Especially a CrossFit Gym!

Today we’re showcasing co-owner Adam Murphy with Crossfit Neighborhood.

Adam and the coaches of Crossfit NBHD have a unique combination of formal education, professional certifications, and real-world experience. The coaches have trained CrossFit Games athletes, fitness newbies, and everyone in between.

Their goal?

They want each member to achieve their health and wellness goals. That may be getting a first pull-up, competing, losing a few pounds, or simply doing life better.

Classes run from 5 a.m.-7 p.m. There’s even an “open gym” you can visit 24/7. So, yea…no excuses!

To sign up for a trial class, visit their website at The-NBHD.com. You’ll be surrounded by folks who share a commitment to health, wellness, and maximizing performance. I’ll see you there!

Do you love your hairstylist?

I do. Angela does an amazing job with all her clients. Moreover, she’s part of a unique and fabulous culture that’s been created by Alexandria’s own, Maria Elizabeth.

Salon deZEN, this week’s featured business, believes “you can change the world by being yourself,” and that’s a message I can get behind! This full-service salon is one of my Alexandria favorites. Where else can you go to get great salon service AND a dose of positive self-affirmation?

The staff and stylists are so good they sweat glitter!

To book a service or learn more about their company philosophy, visit salondezen.com. They’ll help you discover, create and recreate your style while making you feel safe, valued, and appreciated.

Live Alexandria: Made in ALX

Explore Alexandria living in this bi-weekly column sponsored and written by Sandy McMaster of McEnearney Associates. Got a question or comment? Contact Sandy at [email protected].

How you live is as important as where you live. And living in Alexandria remains a top choice for many — including Santa’s elves.

The city’s appeal is more than its convenient location. It’s the charm. The special boutiques, like Made in ALX make Alexandria what it is, which is a city like none other.

I’m Sandy McMaster, a lifetime resident and realtor. I’ve helped people move in and around the city for more than 18 years. As the commercial says, “I’ve seen a thing or two” so I thought it was time to share a few of my favorite places and people, like Beth Lawton, co-founder of Made in ALX.

This fantastic shop is a collective of more than 40 local creators and artisans. The store features unique, hand-crafted items exclusively made in Alexandria. These are singular gifts you give to make your special people, feel special.

Besides the local honey, you’ll find terrific soaps, candles, ceramics, and more. My favorite? The Christmas tree decorations (the gnomes… so cute!) Be sure to stop in often because these creative wizards (elves) show up daily with new inventory for Beth to showcase!

After you’ve found all your stocking stuffers at Made in ALX, follow our new series on Instagram. I’ll share the city’s best-kept secrets and highlight businesses that help us build the lives we want in the city we love!

Happy Holidays!
