Hello there guys and dolls,
Can you believe how fast this summer’s going? August hasn’t even happened yet and we’re already making plans well into autumn. It’s going to be Christmas before we know it! lol.
Some things we’ve got coming up are a summer cruise down to Colonial Beach on Nautical Jiles. We’re really looking forward our boating party! Plus the chicken salad from Hall’s — a nostalgic independent grocery store! I’m also hopeful that we’ll be able to fit in a tour of Stratford Hall.
We also just booked a double date night at Sur la Table in Old Town. It’s Julia Child’s Birthday and we’re taking the Mastering the Art of French Cooking class. And speaking of great cooks, we’re also going to be starting our Tasting & Talking to the Chef series this fall.
Golly, we know we’re not alone in looking forward to the Downton Abbey film. I actually think half the planet is looking forward it. I know it’s going to be just like seeing an old friend you haven’t seen in years but it feels like you just had tea with them yesterday. And it I’m really looking forward to the Downton Party we’re throwing!
We’re also fortunate to the celebrating lots of birthdays! Day trip to Richmond for Miles’ Aunt’s birthday. Road trip the Heartland for Grandma’s 90th birthday. And a train trip to the Greenbriar for Mummy’s birthday that’s ending in a zero — lol.
We’ve been wanting to go to the Greenbriar some time. Can’t wait to see up-close how it’s decorated. Such a huge fan of Dorthy Draper. I fear I’m going to come home and want to redecorate something.
