Ohioan Visitors!


My best friends came to visit me this past weekend. We spent the entire weekend in Lynchburg. On Friday we went Apocalypse Ale Works in Forest, Virginia. I love the Lustful Maiden is a Belgian dubbel Style beer and is just delicious. Then on Saturday, we went to the Smith Mountain Lake BBQ & Brewfest in downtown Moneta and finished the night with appetizers at Mango’s on SML and mini golf. Doug won, and I came in 4th due to sever asphyxiation by Grace. So glad I got to spend a weekend with all of them, especially Tophs, whom I always feel I want to spend more time with! I mean, he is marrying my  best friend!

In honor of Thowback Thursday, here is a good one of the GEM ladies this time last year. It was Grace and Kyle’s 1st anniversary this week. Still can’t believe she is no longer Proctor!





Vintage Lynchburg Spring Market 2016

The end of the school year is always crazy, but this weekend was wonderful to be able to take a break with my mom and sister when they came to visit Lynchburg, Virginia! We love the Vintage Lynchburg‘s biannual event, the Spring and Fall Markets. My mother and I attended 2015’s Spring market, and my sister and I attended the 2016 Fall market together, but this was the first market that all 3 of us were able to be together to attend. It is always a huge event, so we purchased Early Bird Tickets and braved the misty morning to be one of the first 100 people to peruse the artisans’ collections and curations.

Here are some pictures form the weekend. 20160430_09113120160430_09110820160430_09104520160430_090921 (1)
