This weekend was full of —
Watching Mandy open bridal shower gifts, and loving it. It was like a tonic to see her.
Family hangouts at Smith Mountain Lake.
Wine tasting and vine inspecting at Hickory Hill Vineyards.
And finally visiting Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson’s lovely second home.
Ah, Virginia day-tripping: fun, easy, educational and cheap. I’ll likely go into more details on Poplar Forest over at the Midnight Society blog.
