Marvelous Family

Another great weekend has come and retreated. Today, my family visit on Saturday is making my Monday Marvelous!

I had the pleasure of accompanying the gang all around Charlottesville. We started with lunch, of course.

After a walk around the UVa grounds, we went to Veritas Vineyards for an afternoon of wine tasting.

In between sips and nibbles, we snapped several photos.

Chatting, laughing, and enjoying each other’s company amid the quaint mountainside until the vineyard closed.

After a day of spirits, we made time for a relaxing dinner at Boylan Heights, one of my favorite restaurants.

I had an amazing day and felt so fortunate to have my near and dear in town.

Wherever you are today, take a minute to tell your family how much you love them. I feel extremely fortunate to have such a strong, supportive family who will do anything in the world for me. I love nothing more than laughing and making jokes with them. We’re a knee-slapping bunch, to say the least. 😀

Have a marvelous Monday!

  8. I love that you’re so close to your family 🙂 After going through my rebellious teenage years, I’m happy to be at a place where I can say that my parents are pretty much my best friends. It’s great to know that, no matter what, someone has your back.

    Sounds like so much fun! What is your preference of wines? I love being active with my family (sister doesn’t drink) and my dad has this habit of go, go, go 🙂

  16. What a sweet post! I just moved to NYC and I miss my family so much (they’re in Florida). I love cooking out with them by the pool. We eat, drink and play games and it is always the perfect afternoon!

  17. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I miss my family so much. but I am so happy and lucky that my brother got a job here in LA (where I live) so I at least have someone close to me in my family! He and I have actually grown to be really good friends, who would have thought considering we used to absolutely HATE each other!!! I know for sure I will see SOME of my family for Thanksgiving, and ALL for XMAS! I am making that happen!!!
