on my weekend in pictures.

oh my weekend. my long, long weekend. i hope everyone had a lovely fourth - per tradition, brian and i headed south to charlottesville to spend time with my parents (and at the pool). it's one of our favorite traditions, and i look forward to it far, far more than i should. luckily for us our little regional flight to charlottesville was cancelled, and we refused to be rebooked the next day, knowing it would be cancelled again (thanks arthur, and yes, it was cancelled again). thus began a long night where we hopped a train to BWI, where rental car counters are always open, and made the three hour drive to charlottesville, getting in at 4 AM. did i mention how dedicated i am to this trip? i thought so. the next day we spent napping at the pool, however, and that is definitely the best way to recover from a long day (and night) of travel. over the weekend we did the things we always do, without fail - lounged by the pool, ate at some favorite restaurants, enjoyed the fireworks, enjoyed the vineyards, fired up the grill, made s'mores, slept to the sound of complete silence, enjoyed central air conditioning...it was, and always is, grand. virginia, and charlottesville in particular, will always be so special to us for a multitude of reasons - so nice to be able to go back, relax, and enjoy all summer has to give.

  1. Ha! That is dedication. But I completely understand it. No one and nothing is going to get in between me and my vacation.

    Also, these pics are beautiful and capture the summer quite well!

  4. I like how you don't let anything stand in the way of you and your holiday at home. Those are some of the best kinds of vacations: action packed with your favorite things but still relaxing because of the familiarity of home. What I would give for some poolside time!
