We continued our East Coast trip down to Virginia. Our trip to visit my family and friends in Virginia was filled to the brim spending quality time with family and friends, eating good food, doing a little site seeing in DC and just enjoying being HOME for bit. Thanks everyone who made it out to visit with us – I’ll miss you all but will see you again soon!
Our first night in Virginia, we went out to dinner with my parents and Grandma at 2941. Dinner was sooooo good (per usual) and we caught some nice family photos outside!

We tagged along with my mom while her sailing team raced on the bay on Wednesday night. Emily even entrusted us with driving the boat back home for a bit!
Friday night we drove up to Annapolis to walk around the inner harbor and then have dinner with my uncle Gregg and his girlfriend Kelly at The Chart House. It was hotter than Andrew and my SF cold weather skin is used to, but it was a really nice night!
I enjoyed every minute with my pup, Zoe 🙂 Couldn’t do a blog post without sneaking this smiling old girl’s face getting in here!
We spent the weekend at my family’s house on the Chesapeake Bay in Fairhaven, Maryland. The days were warm and sunny with thunderstorms rolling through at night. I miss this place so much!

Saturday I had my Fourth Annual party at the beach house. So many friends came and I LOVED seeing you all!!! We got freshly caught Chesapeake Bay blue crabs, and Dad and friends steamed them up for us all. There’s nothing like sitting around a table, picking crabs, drinking beer and hanging out with all my favorite people! I may have to skip this party for a couple years while we’re in Europe, but I’ll definitely pick it up again some day!!

We stopped at the Arlington National Cemetary on Monday before we had to fly out to head back to SF with my Mom. We watched the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – it was an incredible traditional practice to witness. So happy to have the chance to see these things while we were in town!
Well, that’s a wrap! Andrew and I are now back in San Francisco. We are leaving for Switzerland on FRIDAY! I CAN’T WAIT!!!! Follow along as we start packing our bags and wrap up some last minute things in SF!
