Virginia is for lovers

I have been totally MIA for a combination of reasons, I spent a wonderful weekend in DC, well Virginia, with my man and school (presentations, group work, papers, oh my).

The weekend didn't go exactly as we had planned, but that is life and we worked around it. 
We spent a lot of the weekend hanging out in,
How adorable is this place? 
And although the weather still screamed summer, Occoquan was in fall mode, so I couldn't help but feel an attachment to the town. 
(Be looking out for my post on the perfect pumpkin day. B and I planned it out during our 10 hours in the car this weekend)
I have been visiting Occoquan since I was a little girl, and it's fascinating to see how your perception of a place changes throughout the years. The town is so quaint and the locals we meet were most entertaining.
Don't worry though, I squeezed in a little lot of shopping in Georgetown.
And of course my roommates couldn't help but give me a proper welcoming when I got home. 
I found this lovely snack in my cabinet. 
Thanks Cait and Brit
This Thursday, I will be heading to the Virginia mountains with my girls. 
Is it bad that I have been in Wilmington less in the last month, then I have been here? 
I love this place, but I think I might be getting bored of the city, ready for a new adventure.

  2. What about DC cupcakes?!?! Did you manage to get there? Virginia is for Lovers!!!! I'm glad you had fun...and did some shopping!
