Going the extra distance is something our In-House Marketing Department is used to doing. Take a look at 2020’s best lifestyle videos.

Daydreams Of Sandy Shores | Sandbridge History

Daydreams Of Sandy Shores | Sandbridge History

If you’ve ever wondered how Sandbridge came about, we have the scoop for you thanks to our friends at SBH. According to www.visitvirginiabeach.com, “Sandbridge is a secluded beach hideaway of pristine sand dunes and dancing sea oats. It is a relaxing and peaceful community where you can truly slow down and unwind on your vacation…” Let’s dive into Sandbridge’s history! 

 

Sandbridge, a strip of land approximately fifteen miles in length between Back Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, has been home to farmers, surfmen, fishermen, hunters, vacationers, and permanent residents for over one hundred years. Deeds dating to 1850 reveal that the original name of this beach was Sand Ridge.

 

In the late 1800’s, the U.S. Congress authorized the U.S. Lifesaving Service to construct stations along the coast to assist ships in distress. Dam Neck Mills and Little Island Station protected Sandbridge. Six surfmen and a keeper manned each station. They and their families lived nearby. These stations continued, as a part of the U.S. Coast Guard, in to the nineteen thirties.

 

During the late eighteen and early nineteen hundreds numerous duck hunting clubs were located on Back Bay and its environs, a part of the Atlantic Flyway. Sandbridge Beach was formerly the property of the Sandbridge Gunning Club. That club was active in to the 1950s. Sandbridge developer James Kabler named several streets for the club’s duck blinds, e.g. Porter’s Island and Molly Cooper.

 

In 1952, Harvey Lindsay, a Norfolk real estate businessman bought a portion of the five mile oceanfront to develop a second home community. Lots were platted in an offset pattern for unobstructed oceanfront and semi-oceanfront views. James Kabler constructed the first house in 1953.

 

The community that had continued to grow throughout the 1950s was devastated by a storm on March 7, 1962, the Ash Wednesday Storm, that brought tides up to 8.9 feet. The storm whipped the sea, splintered houses, and washed away dunes. The owners cleaned up the residue and rebuilt Sandbridge. Subsequently, houses had to be constructed upon pilings.

 

The decade following the Ash Wednesday storm was one of rapid growth. Sandbridge was extended to within a mile of Back Bay Wildlife Refuge. Plans for further expansion were curtailed with the passage of the Federal Wet Lands Act. However, houses continued to sprout along Sandpiper and Sandfiddler Roads.

 

By the late 1970s and early 1980s Sandbridge was expanding into a year-round community. Today Sandbridge is complete with a new firehouse, rescue squad, condominiums, luxury homes, churches, general store, fishing pier, restaurants and as much wildlife as ever! Plus, with sand replenishment in 2007, the community will continue to evolve for many years to come.

5 New Years Resolutions + How To Stick To Them

5 New Years Resolutions + How To Stick To Them

January 1st is a day to look back at what 2020 meant to us, but also to look forward to what 2021 could be. Whether you believe in New Years Resolutions or not, we wanted to share these five and how you can stick to them. Adopt them all as your own or get inspired to figure out more personalized resolutions. Let’s head into the New Year brimming with optimism and good vibes.

 

Build a better budget.

If there’s one New Year’s resolution that will help you the most in the long run, it’s making a vow to save more money. Before you head back to the office, outline a budget that works for you — and make a plan for how you’ll stick to it.

HOW : Apps like Mint and You Need a Budget (YNAB) can help you do this as painlessly as possible.

 

Become a plant owner.

Swing by the garden center after brunch this weekend. Just the presence of indoor plants can lower human stress levels, research shows, and one study found that actively caring for plants calmed the autonomic nervous system and lowered blood pressure. And when people work near plants, they report greater concentration, satisfaction, and perceived air quality.

HOW : Talk to a Plant Stylist or head over to PlantBar VB.

Drink up.

You know you need to hydrate — but it’s especially important when you get only six hours of sleep (or less!). You’re more likely to be dehydrated the day after a short night of zzz’s, because a hormone that regulates your body’s water conservation is released in later stages of sleep. So down some extra water on those days.

HOW : Find the perfect water jug! Get started here with the Strategist.

Explore new hobbies.

Another sleepy Sunday? Today’s the day you try Ethiopian food, attend a ballet, or take a painting class — whatever feels fun. When researchers followed 7,500 people for 25 years, they found that those who complained of major boredom were roughly twice as likely to die from heart disease.

HOW : There are a ton of hobbies out there… get inspired by at least 1 of 50 at Lifehack.

 

Give yourself more compliments.

Repeat after us: “Today is my day. I’m thankful for me.” Positive self-talk can help you focus on what’s good in your life, says psychologist Joy Harden Bradford, Ph.D. Research shows that a little vitamin G (for gratitude) can make you feel happier and more satisfied and even improve your sleep. “If you repeat an affirmation related to gratitude in the morning, you’re likely to show and feel more of it throughout that day,” Bradford says. You’re so welcome!

HOW : Learn more about Positive Self Talk here with PostivePyschology.com!

 

Oh, and don’t worry if these particular five don’t resonate – we linked more. Read through all 56 Resolutions from Good Housekeeping (original source) HERE.

Let us know which you decide to tackle in 2021.
