Our trip up to Virginia

GDI - pebbly beach Colonial Beach VA

Our trip up to Virginia this weekend was a whirlwind - fun and busy & beautiful :) Our dear friend Sarah was married in an historic church and the reception was held on her family's farm. It was lovely, all of it.

Here are a random assortment of photos, with the little stories behind each. Hope you had a good weekend, too.

Our hotel was a short drive from Colonial Beach, Virginia, a tiny town with a few cute restaurants and a pebbly beach. We spent an hour talking and picking out the prettiest pebbles. Well, no, that's not true. I picked out pebbles while Bud mostly tried to see how many he could stack on top of one another. I think his toppled at six.

GDI - lovely pink pebbles

You can't really tell in this picture, but I found about a million beautiful rose quartz.

GDI - gin & tonic in basket

This was my emergency prep basket: ingredients for a gin & tonic at the hotel.

GDI - Bud Steamers

We ate dinner at possibly the cheesiest restaurant on the planet. Here's Bud hamming it up with a stuffed potato skin.

GDI - note to T&J&G

During our afternoon in Colonial Beach, we found a pretty little restaurant near the beach where they put brown butcher paper on the tables. I took a moment to write my kids a note & post to instagram, where I knew Georgia would see it.

GDI - pastries Mosaic

Coffee shop near Georgia's house in DC. Obligatory photo of goodies. We shared two chocolate croissants.

GDI - travel coffee for ants

An espresso and a sparkling water.

GDI - S & S wedding church

The church - built in the 1700's. No electricity, oil burning lamps, just perfect.

GDI - wedding reception

A picture from the reception.

Congratulations Sarah & Scott!! xoxo
