I’m typing out this post as Justin and I travel all the way to Charlottesville (which takes almost an hour and a half) to pick up our frogs! The place we originally wanted to get them didn’t get the shipment in that they were expecting, so after he called a bunch of other stores- the only one that had it was Charlottesville. Funnily enough, it’s the store right next to the World Market I used to work at (:
But back to the point of this…my mom paid us a visit this past weekend and we had a very nice day at the park with her, just walking in the sunshine!
She met us at our apartment and we had a lovely lunch of steak in salads made by my wonderful, handsome man (: then we went out for a quick Starbucks run before heading to Maymont park…where we saw COWS ^ look how cute!
We didn’t take too many pictures as it was a gorgeous day (after having such frigid weather for a while) and the park looked beautiful in the setting sun. Mom did ask for me to take her photo with the children’s statue ^ adorable!
All in all it was a great time spent with my mom and I’m hoping we’ll be able to do more things like this this year. With her work schedule and ours, it’s tough sometimes to get days like this one. Every moment with family is cherished (:
I’m extremely excited to finally say our family is growing by getting our first pets (no matter how small) together as a couple. It’s a proud time to know we can provide for something living besides ourselves and one day we’ll advance to cats/dogs and eventually another tiny human! Looking forward to that, but not anytime soon haha I’ll catch you guys in the next one…
