By Cathy Purple Cherry, AIA, Founding Principal of Purple Cherry Architects

There is genuinely nothing more breath-taking than elegant moldings and trim within a custom home. After 30 years of architectural practice, I can confidently say that it is the addition of millwork that humanizes the scale of a home.

The night sky is being recreated in the Rotunda’s Dome Room for a limited time, thanks to a trio of University of Virginia PhD candidates—not from astronomy or computer science, but from the English department.

albemarle Magazine special correspondent and ten-year-old UVA superfan Abbey Rogers was granted unique access to the WMBA Hall of Famer and Head Coach of the UVA Women’s Basketball Program.

Coach Thompson’s background is one of the most impressive in the history of women’s basketball. When she retired in 2013, she was the all-time leading scorer in WNBA history, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, a four-time WNBA champion and was the first player drafted in the history of the WNBA. She becomes the fifth head women’s basketball coach in UVA’s 45-year history. Rogers notes that Thompson “is much taller in person then you think. Not only is she athletic, but she is very funny and kind.”

New Year’s Resolutions

Why they fail and how you can succeed

By Kimberly Blaker

The New Year is a great time to take inventory, set goals, and take charge of your life. But if you’re like most, making resolutions is much easier than keeping them. Rather than focus on the idea of a new beginning, which can lead to disappointment at the first slip, keep in mind that self-improvement is an ongoing endeavor. Setbacks are not failures; they bring wisdom and insight for future success.
