A lot happened since I last wrote! On Saturday I took a road trip to DC with Darcey to watch our friend Brian compete in the Metro Dash obstacle course. It was HOT but he did great and it was fun to watch! Once he was done we went down to National Harbor for a bit. We also got to grab a quick lunch with our JMU buddy, Danielle!
We got to play in the sand a bit around this cool statue too!
When I got home Chris surprised me with dinner at Savour. We LOVE that place. Totally random location but the food is great and the owner & staff are SO nice! We also exchanged anniversary presents. We decided on the traditional ‘paper’ so I got Chris a print of a photograph by Robert Wrenn Jones that he liked when we saw it in Floyd. Check out his work at www.throughtherectangle.com
Thanks to Nick and Maggie we had a gift certificate to stay at Silver Thatch Inn so we decided to use it on Sunday to end our anniversary weekend. It’s located right in Hollymead on 29 North but we felt a lot further away! The rooms are lovely (we chose the James Madison room….Go Dukes!). We planned on just having an appetizer or two in their adorable little ‘pub’ but the menu looked so good that we decided to go for a full dinner. It was REALLY good! The restaurant is open to the public so if you’re looking for a place to go for a special occasion, I’d recommend checking it out! Here is a photo of my favorite part of the meal: Scallops with Corn Pudding…YUM.
And a self-taken photo of us in the pub!
It was back to the real world this morning but at least we just have a few days of work & packing before we head to Vermont on Friday!
