Blue Ridge Mountains Overlook

Coming home from the Frontier Cultural Museum, we stopped by for a scenic overlook of the Blueridge Mountains.

Frontier Culture Museum Of Virginia

We had an amazing day at the Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia. We learned the heritage and farming practices of the West Africans, English, Irish, American and Germans. It was an awesome beautiful day with many things to learn!!

Lewis & Clark Exploratory Museum - Charlottsville, VA

Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center was quite an adventure with Griffin, Abby & Mason! We toured full-size historical boat replicas, as well as a permanent exhibition that relates to both the national history of the expedition and the local roots in Albemarle County of Lewis and Clark. We also took a hiking tour to the Rivannah River and learned interesting information about the area.

Twenty Two Years.

Twenty two years married. ❤ I love you, Michael!

How about a few fun facts about our wedding?

We were together 10 years before we got married.

I bought the first dress I tried on after trying on many more. And, it cost less than our cake!

We used mason jars and fresh daisies for decorating - well before it was trendy.

My bridesmaids were Joy,Bonnie, and Robin. Mike's groomsmen were Jerome, Ray Jr. and James.

We stayed in Weeki Watchi Springs on our wedding night - no we didn't see the mermaids.

We didn't eat anything at our reception, except for a bite of cake, so we went through McDonald's for dinner.

We honeymooned in Homassasa - staying at McCray's on the river and went fishing.

Mike was unemployed when we got married (he told me to add that!)

Mike had a job interview in Tallahassee when we were on our honeymoon.
