After I spent Saturday afternoon hiking @bansheereeksnp, I treated myself to a winery! I heard that @greenhillwine had renovated, so made another visit. It is now GORGEOUS and all their wines are GREAT!  Please check them out if youโ€™re in the Middleburg, VA area! โ˜บ๏ธ ๐Ÿท

I haven't really shared much about it yet, but the past few months since Aram was been born have been pretty stressful. My husband had to pick up a second job just a week after Aram was born and he was working 60 hour weeks. Then we had a medical scare with Aram when he was about 10 days old. Everything turned out just fine but left us with hefty medical bills beyond what we already owed for his birth. And then of course, newborns are needy. They take a LOT of time, especially from mom. I always forget how damanding they are of my time. Since we're also homeschooling our two oldest kids, the only down time my husband and I have is usually after 9pm once everyone is in bed. And then we are usually exhausted ourselves.
We needed a vacation SO bad but just could not afford the standard week-long vacation somewhere. Great Wolf Lodge came to our rescue! We stayed 2 nights and (with the help of my amazing sister in law) had an AMAZING time! So many smiles and so many great memories! We lost a phone due to water damage (pro-tip- don't buy the cheap waterproof cellphone bags!) but really it's okay because the trip was just so wonderful! We can't wait to go back again, hopefully sometime soon! It was exactly what our family needed! So many smiles and such a happy, fun time!

I'll be sharing more about Great Wolf Lodge Williamsburg on the blog soon!

Wrapping up this week's #mood series: "Virginia is for lovers". Such a silly travel slogan, but it made me feel more alone than I would've expected. Especially since I was only driving through the state because of a breakup. But this map, at an empty rest stop, gave me hope. "You are here, but you are not yet done."

Beautiful carvings at Swannanoa.  #swannanoa #swannanoapalace #virginiatravel #virginia #afton
I was this close to our nationโ€™s capital and didnโ€™t get to see any of its historic or monumental sights. Work comes first. The rolling hills of Virginia were magnificent with vineyards (I know, who would have thought?), equine communities, and grand states.

How can you not celebrate #internationalbeerday ? I luckily reside in the Shenandoah Valley where it is a beer loversโ€™ paradise! In Staunton alone there are 5 local craft breweries, not mention all that can be found in Waynesboro and Charlottesville! I spent so much time on the 151 in Nelson County after I turned 21 where you can find larger breweries like Devilโ€™s Backbone and Bold Rock Cidery. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
I personally love stouts, porters, and goses... Especially those that have more flavor! One of my all-time favorite stouts is the AMOG stout from Red Beard Brewery in Staunton, VA. They sometimes mix it with a blueberry wheat, creating a beer I could literally drink for breakfast! โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
What types of beer do you guys like? Whatโ€™s your favorite brewery?

Thomas Jefferson described his home, Monticello, as his "sanctum sanctorum". On a clear day you can easily see 40 miles into the distance from this mountain top architectural masterpiece. Tip of the day: schedule your visit early before the crowds, or the humidity disrupt your views!

This summer, do you plan to travel far or stay local?  About a month ago, a group of friends and I took a road trip ๐Ÿš—down to Virginia and stayed at the charming Founders Inn and Spa in Virginia Beach.  Stop by the blog for more on this pretty hotel and our girlsโ€™ weekend!  #foundersinnandspa

A pretty bench in a garden of boxwoods...love this classic but simple look.  This relaxing spot is located on the grounds of The Founders Inn and Spa where I had a girlsโ€™ weekend last month.  Always so nice to get away!  Do you have any travel plans coming up? โœˆ๏ธ

Somewhere in Virginia (or like part way between Sweet Briar and Charlottesville)

I don't post too many food photos on Instagram, but my sunset meal at @shantyseafood was phenomenal! If you're visting Cape Charles on Virgnia's Eastern Shore -- which I highly recommend you do -- make sure to stop at this waterfront eatery for a tuna burger paired with an "Orange Crush" cocktail. ๐Ÿน 
___
Sit outside and watch the sunset turn from a soft pastel sky to a fiery orange masterpiece. You can swipe right to see the full experience!

A big thanks to @VisitVirginia for being the #sponsor of this incredible trip! ๐ŸŽ‰

Was I terrifed to go hang gliding? YES. Am I so, so, so glad I did it? ABSOLUTELY!
___
Wow, what a rush! @virginiahanggliding on Virgnia's Eastern Shore offered an incredible first-time hang gliding experience for me. I've been sky diving, bungee jumping and paragliding, but this felt much more serene.
___
From 3500 feet I could see Virginia's barrier islands, the Chesapeake Bay, Tangier Island and the beauty of the state's coastal side from above. 
___
While most of the trip we floated -- I even got to steer the glider -- another part of it included owner Don Guynnโ€‹ doing some deeeeeeeep dips to the side (called "wangs") that made me feel like we were upside down. I'll admit I closed my eyes and screamed like a baby for that part, but was so happy I got to experience it. 
___
Face those fears. Try new things. Allow travel to show you how strong and capable you truly are. ๐Ÿ˜

Why yes, I'll take a gorgeous sunset with my daiquiri, thank you. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
___
Seriously though. This trip -- graciously #sponsored by @VisitVirginia -- is off to a great start. Driving over Virginia's Chesapeake Bay Bridge to get to Cape Charles and have a delicious waterfront meal at The Jackspot at Sunset Beach at sunset was a WONDERFUL welcome to the state's eastern shore. 
___
Swipe right to check out the photos above to see how the sunset changed from 7pm to 9pm. GORGEOUS!

Itโ€™s funny how some guests are quick to write reviews and others, though having supremely enjoyed their experience at #north_point_plantation, are not wont to post reviews.
