The Cavalier on Rivermont.

a local dive known for it's season french fries with a side of ranch (or mustard if you're me). i had a grilled cheese on rye bread and it was yummy. Paired with Stella beers and it was delicious.

i fell in love with the VA licence plates covering the walls (note about VA plates: nearly all of them have phrases or names) & the graffitied tables/chairs.

i took a picture of a hearted M engraved on our table, because it reminded me of this, which reminded me of my bestie.

it's near Randolph College, which until recently, was an all girls college. i have always fantasized about going to a university that wasn't coed.

i'm falling in love with my little city & it's history.


(but i deeply miss you twinks! i can't sleep...

it's after 2 a.m. and i'm still awake)

Seeing those pictures made me JEALOUS!! You are starting a whole new life with an amazing man and I'm still stuck here in Texoma! lol..
Just kidding- sort of. The thought of taking off and moving somewhere unfamiliar with my Love just sounds so amazing... and here you are, doing it! I can't wait to learn more about your new city!

Glad you are learning to love your little city. And I have no doubt that soon your little city will love you right back! What's not to love? xo

I always wanted to go to a boarding school, like in the books I read as a girl. I was so keen to live in a dorm and wear a cute plaid skirt, knee socks and a blazer! (yep, I was a bit of a nerd...)

You and your sis should have a nightly Skype date, so you can blow kisses good-night. That might help you sleep!
