sand between our toes and the smell of salt water in the air. an anniversary weekend at virginia beach.

I spent part of my morning and afternoon sifting through all our photos from Virginia Beach, Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Jamestowne and I am already missing everything from our anniversary weekend. We had relaxed, laughed, reminisced and had fun. 

I loved the feeling of sand between my toes and the smell of salt water. The rain and thunderstorms decided to let us be and we enjoyed beautiful weather while we were there. On our second day, we were near the College of William & Mary and I told Yangkyu how it was my dream school but I didn't get in. Then I wondered what would've happened if I did end up going there. Would I have walked the same path that led me to meeting Yangkyu? I hoped so. I think so. 

My heart was full and content this weekend. I am thankful for the love and happiness I have and feel. I am madly in love with Yangkyu and Piri, too.
** Virginia Beach is dog-friendly. We stayed at the Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront which is located on the north end of the beach where dogs are allowed during the summer months before 10 am and after 6 pm. You can find more information on when dogs are allowed all season long here

  10. I'm in love with the photos of you guys Jane! I went to Virginia Beach and loved it! There was a restaurant near the beach and they had the best seafood (mussels, clams etc). William & Mary College is gorgeous. The entire are is colonial. Also went to the amusement park there (Busch Gardens). It was split into various countries. I enjoyed myself.
