Today Brendan and I went on an adventure to Virginia. In the 6 years I have lived in Maryland I have managed to avoid driving in Virginia, because it is quite possibly the scariest place to drive…yes, scarier then driving in NYC or D.C. But today I conquered that fear as we were having a get together with some new friends that I met through a moms group. We were supposed to go to the pumpkin patch but the weather had other plans so one of the girls was gracious enough to offer up her house to us for the day. We had lunch, dessert and the kids all played while we chatted. It was a really nice time and we plan to meet up again some time again soon.
