Virginia is for Lovers

It had been 10 whole months! 10 months since I had been back to my home state of Virginia. The home of the James River, Virginia peanuts, southern accents, and lovers of course. I hadn't seen my parents in 5 months and most of my friends in at least 10 months. This was also the first real visit I've had to Virginia in probably 5 years! No real agenda, no scheduled event, just time with my family and time to unwind. It was a special time and truly the best visit in over 5 years.

And guess what? NO house work. No painting moldings, no nailing shingles and no 5am wake ups.  A much needed vaca and break from the every day.

I walked the quad of my alma mater JMU, pigged out on Klines ice cream, dined out with friends, spent too much money at the outlets, jammed out to Jake Owen, Parmalee, and Jana Kramer at Eaglefest with my mom, sailed my childhood waters of the Chesapeake Bay, met my besties new babe, and just enjoyed TIME.

I am grateful for that time to unwind, reconnect, and recharge - now its crunch time to get the bathroom reno and front of our house buttoned up - there's nothing like the imminent threat of snow to get motivated. Stay tuned for bathroom reno updates and sneak peeks.
