During our summer off from work, both Andrew and I wanted to fit in some time at our respective homes. Unfortunately, we couldn’t manage to visit both destinations together and instead each went home separately. So, after our time in Coeur d’Alene, Andrew boarded a plane taking him south to San Diego to see his family and I headed back east to Virginia from Wednesday 16 August – Monday 21 August.
It was a whirlwind trip for me but so much fun. I flew in late on Wednesday night and immediately left the next morning with my mom to spend the day and night in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. We stayed at our favorite spot, the Rehoboth Guest House. On Thursday we lucked into a gorgeous beach day at the Delaware Seashore State Park and had a fantastic dinner at Salt Air, where I got a much needed crab cake. On Friday morning we went for a boardwalk run and sat on the beach for a couple hours before we drove back home to Virginia. The perfect quick mother-daughter getaway!
On Saturday morning I caught a ride with my friend Ginna and her fiancé, Will, to go down to Richmond, VA, for our friend Laura’s wedding. The wedding was an absolute blast with good food, tons of friends, an incredible live band fit for dancing the night away, and my friend got MARRIED. Such a fun time!
On Sunday afternoon my family had a BBQ at my Grandma’s house on the back deck. It was great to get to see everyone before leaving again, including my aunt and uncle who came up from South Carolina.
Always a good trip home to Virginia. Luckily I have a few weddings coming up this fall and will be home a bunch more to see everyone.
‘Til next time, Virginia!
