Memorial Week





The family and I have been on a whirlwind fest of friends this past week. Attended the Retail Alliance Annual Awards Show... um... we won! Wow! 

My college roommate came up from Knoxville first. Of course had to have some Friendly's! Did a little last minute sprucing up at our community pool. Drove to Norfolk multiple times this week. Bid her farewell on Wednesday. Then my other friends started showing up for the rest of the weekend! What a blast we had. I hope you all had a great time too. We drank wine and whiskey, played multiple ball games, checked out Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and Jamestown Beach!! It was busy but wonderful.
