Happy Wednesday! We are already halfway through the week! That is what is glorious about holiday’s on Mondays.

Ok folks, I am going to brag a little bit here. Sorry I’m not sorry. I have the most wonderful husband. He has missed my birthday for the past four years due to deployments, training, anything Army. I told him this year, all I wanted was flowers and a cake. I got so much more.

Side note: My birthday isn’t actually until next week (June 2), but he gave me my gift early for a reason.

This past weekend at the Lake, he brought a giant wrapped box with him and told me to open it. This is what was inside.

A weekend trip (this weekend) to Alexandria, VA and the wine country. What is crazy was literally just two hours earlier, at dinner, I mentioned to my parents that VA has a wine country and I would love to see it, but probably wouldn’t before we moved.

I am so excited! We are staying at the Westin in Old Town Alexandria both nights. And traveling to the Leesburg area to visit some wineries on Saturday. Oh the places to choose from! Oh, did I mention that he has Sadie taken care of? His parents are coming in town on Thursday night and staying the weekend with Sadie. We haven’t had a weekend night to ourselves in quite a while. I am so thankful for my in-laws for coming to watch her so we can enjoy! Plus, I know Sadie will have a blast.

We’ve done our research, but I’d love to hear from you. If you’ve been to either areas and found a restaurant, winery, or just a place to visit while there, please let me know! Recommendations are much appreciated!

If you’re not following me on Instagram, you should because I know I’m going to get some beautiful photos this weekend!

What do you think?
