Columbus Day Weekend

It was a crazy busy weekend, but we had a ton of fun exploring new surroundings and taking in all kinds of history.  Friday was spent in New Bern, NC visiting the Birth Place of Pepsi Cola and the cute shopping center they have where you can purchase all kinds of knick knacks with one…

Hello Portsmouth…

We took a little trip down to the Portsmouth and Oceana area this weekend to take in the air show with the Blue Angels.  I’m so glad we did!!  While driving through the historic downtown area, we happened upon a pub screaming our names!  Roger Brown’s Restaurant and Sports Bar is a welcome retreat for…

8 Shires Coloniale Distillery- Williamsburg, VA

September is Craft Spirit Month here in Virginia.  We thought we’d start out in our own backyard and take a tour of the 8 Shires Coloniale Distillery here in Williamsburg, VA.  This unique setting offers the “feel” of drinking, socializing and dining back in the day with traditional pub seating and board games/cards to pass…

Labor Day Weekend- Williamsburg, VA

Wow….. that’s the best way to open up this little series of tales of our Labor Day weekend festivities.  I (Rebecca) was super excited to have a friend from out of town visit us here in our new home, and we played the tourist thing to the HILT!  Our dining and drinking excursions started at…

Virginia Beer Company- Williamsburg, VA

What can I say…. I’m a HUGE sucker for all things Huckleberry.  Let me tell you where my obsession with this delightful little berry comes from- I’m a Western Girl at heart and to the core.  We used to spend our summers in and around the Yellowstone National Park area with family when I was…

Brass Cannon Brewing- Williamsburg, VA

WooHoo…. who doesn’t love a party?  Especially a First Year Anniversary party celebrating your new location.  We’ve had a grand welcoming in our newly adopted digs, and couldn’t think of another place we’d rather be than Brass Cannon Brewing this past weekend.  When I’m saying I’ve never had a dessert beer quite like the Tiramisu there,…

Saúde Creek Vineyards- New Kent, VA

This setting is breathtaking and the live music they feature here on a regular basis is top notch.  Saude Creek Vineyards is located in New Kent, VA just a few minutes off of I-64 and when you’re in the area, it’s a must visit location!  The wrap around deck offers views upon views and there…

Gauthier Vineyard-Barhamsville, VA

Gauthier Vineyard is a quiet sanctuary tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Richmond and the Williamsburg, VA area and is just what the doctor ordered after a super long and extremely busy week.  We started our morning out with a fantastic hike around the Waller Mill Park in Williamsburg and then hopped onto…

Kentucky/Tennessee

This area was our home for many years and will always hold a special place in our hearts.  MB Roland Distillery was always a favorite for the live music and tasty varieties of moonshine and just down the road you will find our first vineyard we visited and fell in love with Beachaven Vineyards &…

Virginia Beer Company- Williamsburg, VA

This is our newly adopted home base and we’ve enjoyed getting to know the area and all of it’s offerings.  We’re centrally located in the area and found a local brewery putting out all kinds of greatness! Check out The Virginia Beer Company if and when you’re in the area.  They have a great staff that’s…

Boise, ID

You can’t mention visiting Boise and forget to talk about Ste. Chapelle.  They have a stunning setting and have a wide variety of deliciousness to choose from!  I was blessed to live in that area for many years and still get very homesick when I’m away for too long.  Luckily, my family is still in…

Hampton Roads Winery- Surry County, VA

We never thought we’d visit a winery with a goat castle, but that’s just what we found when we stopped by the Hampton Roads Winery.  They are a funny bunch as well, you’ll have to read more about them by visiting their Facebook page.  Evidently, they will fight over who is the one who claims…
