One of Michael's oldest friends - Dusty and his fiancé, Colleen, live in Richmond and we had the chance to visit with them over the holidays! We've never been that far up the east coast and we actually loved Richmond. They live in a cute old apartment in Carytown surrounded by locally owned boutiques and restaurants. It was so nice to catch up with old friends and just relax.
We spent a lot of days eating at local restaurants and nights by the fireplace sipping wine playing super competitive games of The Settlers of Catan (a game we're now obsessed with). Dusty and Colleen were such lovely hosts. I wish we lived closer!!! : (
This is their neighborhood.
The view from Dusty and Colleen's balcony : ) So cute!
Yummy treats from Dixie Donuts!
Chillin at the hizzy.
The. Best. Game. Ever.
We went to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and took a look at the CHIHULY exhibition. He makes crazy glass sculptures. The neon one was my favorite.
We also had newlywed's Amanda and Josh over one night! It was a Gilmer High School reunion (Amanda, Dusty and Michael were high school pals.)
We went to dinner on NYE at Pasture in Richmond. Yum yum!
