Spotted two more of these bad boys on my road trip to Charlottesville this past weekend! I have been having so much fun exploring different parts of Virginia in search of all the LOVEworks signs. The signs are part of an ad campaign for the Virginia is for lovers slogan and they are popping up everywhere. This is number 5 of 6 for me and I will be locating number 7 in Chincoteague, VA this weekend. There is so much to love about VA and I can’t wait to check out more of it. Do you like to make pit stops to see things on road trips or do you just want to get to your destination? Where’s your favorite road trip? . . . #abmsummer #abmtravelbug #femaletravelbloggers #girlsthatwander #teamhelene #travelgirlscollective #teamkaptainkenny #womenwhoexplore #travelgirlsgo #wearetravelgirls #globelletravels #abmhappylife #timeoutsociety #gltlove #prettylittletrips #livetotravel #darlingplaces #virginiaisforlovers #dmv #exploredmv #visitvirginia #loveva #exploreva #northernvirginia #goats #traveltagged #visitva #southernliving #culpeper

Link to full video on my BIO. Here’s a video I created for Les Crepes Carytown. It reflects the similarities in between the high level of coordination and skill it takes to dance tango and create a great crepe as well as how both scenarios can be easily intertwined.

It is said that the Civil War began in Wilmer McLean's backyard and ended in his parlor (pictured). The McLean family moved 120 miles South to the village of Clover Hill, Virginia from Bull Run, Virginia where one of the first battles of the Civil War took place on their farm. They moved to Clover Hill (later called Appomattox Court House) in 1861 to avoid anymore of the war and purchased the McLean House which was built in 1848. On the morning of April 9, 1865, Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant in the parlor of the McLean House. . Because of the name of the village, many mistakenly think the Civil War surrender took place in the Appomattox Court House building. But, during this time in Virginia, rural county seat names were often simply the name of the county plus "Court House." . The house became a sensation after the war and McLean sold pieces of furniture and photos of the house. Some pieces of furniture were stolen but the actual tables used for the signing are part of the collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. Replicas of these pieces can be seen in the house today. . In 1893 the entire house was dismantled for display in Washington D.C., but never happened due to lack of funds. The pieces of the home sat deteriorating until the 1940s when the National Park Service reconstructed the home on its original site using the original pieces. . #southernreverie @appomattoxnps

Driving to Shenadoah National Park? Stop at "The Apple House." I made the mistake and didn't get the pulled pork sandwich and beans. (Their apple fritter doughnuts are bomb as well). One of my favorite parts about Virginia was driving off the main (always way too packed highways) and finding these amazing gems. . . . . . . . . . . . #food #foodlover #foodiesofinstagram #thirdculturekid #Virginia #eeeeats #foodlover #foodiefeature #hungry #tasty #lunchspot #pitstop #exploreva #snp #bbq #theapplehouse #foodgram #summerdays #americanfood

Lafayette Meeks grew up in Clover Hill (later renamed to The Village of Appomattox Court House) and was the son of Francis and Maria Meeks who ran the village store. Lafayette entered the Civil War with the 2nd Va. Cav. in the spring of 1861. He died in October 1861 of typhoid at only eighteen years old. Lafayette became the first of the village citizens to die in the war. During his short time in the war it is said that he fought in the battles of Bull Run and Manassas. A surgeon pronounced him dead on October 4 after weeks of painful illness. His body was rushed home to Clover Hill by train and his father retrieved his remains from the Appomattox Station. In the field behind the store, a fresh grave had already been dug and family and neighbors gathered for a small service. The grave of Lafayette Meeks, along with an old cedar tree which was there when he was buried, remains today as part of the Appommatox Court House National Historical Park. #southernreverie @appomattoxnps

When Peter, an Army Veteran, had physical challenges navigating his home, VA stepped in. Renovations included widening door openings, stalling grab bars, ramps and more. #ExploreVA housing grants: Explore.VA.gov/home-loans-and-housing #Veterans #VeteransAffairs #VA

Happy Monday friends! Let me tell you, I’m definitely not as excited to be back at work as I was when I ran into these fun goats at a farmers market whole road tripping to Charlottesville. I thought I would post more over the weekend, but I was having so much fun visiting wineries, having 80s dance parties, and reading a Grimm fairytale book that we found in our airbnb as bedtime stories that I ended up mostly unplugging for the weekend. Tell me how your weekends went and whether you have had or are in need of some time being unplugged 👇🏻🍷🥂🐐 . . . . #abmsummer #abmtravelbug #femaletravelbloggers #girlsthatwander #teamhelene #travelgirlscollective #teamkaptainkenny #womenwhoexplore #travelgirlsgo #wearetravelgirls #globelletravels #abmhappylife #timeoutsociety #gltlove #prettylittletrips #livetotravel #darlingplaces #virginiaisforlovers #dmv #exploredmv #visitvirginia #loveva #exploreva #northernvirginia #goats #traveltagged #visitva #southernliving #culpeper

08/18/2018 An amazing show last Saturday by a band I have followed for over 20 years because of their outstanding talent and empowering lyrics.

Sadly my first smallmouth of the year. Between work and weather, the rivers and streams nearby have been blown out most weekends. This was particularly exciting as I suspected they were in this smaller stream #smallmouth #smallstream #flyfishing #fishing #bassfishing #wetwading #wading #allenflyfishing #flytying #exploreva

I recently caught a convective storm during one of my training rides in the Shenandoah Valley. I was riding back from the Great North Mountain, which can be seen behind the rain shaft. The storm followed me up to this point and I eventually had to take shelter under a church canopy. No complaints from me though. Watching a storm from birth to death is a good day.

"I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling." -Jack Kerouac | #ravensroost #blueridgeparkway #blueridgenps #blueridgemountains #blueridgemoments #blueridgeday #mountainview #LoveVA #virginiaisbeautiful #virginiaoutdoors #naturalvirginia #visitvirgina #myvirginialove #exploreva #scenicvirginia #virginiacities #wanderingseus #nakedplanet #choosemountains #hikeeveryday #neverstopexploring #findyourpark #52weeksofnature

Although it’s a newer hobby, photography makes me stop and appreciate things or people that I normally wouldn’t. It forces me to ask, “How can I best showcase or tell the story of what I’m seeing and experiencing?” I’ve only got one frame to communicate with - no words, no motion - just a still shot. . So even in a humorous photo like this one, there is a story to tell. Maybe it’s just a cover photo for an article titled “Look What Else the Millennials Have Put Out of Business” or “Young Couple Poses Next to What They Thought Was a Historic Monument.” . But this isn’t a news site - it’s @Instagram. So the picture gets to tell the story, not our words.
