Precious Last Days

This past weekend was a whirlwind of fun. We tried to soak up as much of Richmond as we could.  Richmond truly does have a lot to offer, especially in the warmer months when it's not just the mosquitos and summer legs coming out.  People can be found sitting on front porches sipping iced tea in mason jars, groups of kids riding bikes by with hair blowing back, songbirds lining the power lines, and the many, many events going on outside carrying a variety of tunes in through open windows.

Some of our weekend highlights included:

Going to see Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears play on Browns Island with good friends.  I always love a good outdoor concert.  It always just feels like summertime when you get to watch a favorite band and a sunset over the river at the same time.

We also met up with friends at the RVA Beer Fest.  Delicious! and Bravo, Gallery 5, for putting on such an awesome event! 


We also got in a little time soaking up the sun on Belle Isle.  I still think it may be my favorite place in the city. Where else can you go that you can swim, rock hop, walk through lush shady trees engulfed in the smell of honeysuckle and river water, all while looking at a gorgeous city skyline?  Nowhere. That's what I thought. So many fond memories there. 

These are the kinds of things that make me fall in love with life and remind me of how very blessed we are.  Thank you God for summer in the city.
