As I said before Tim and I took a trip up to the Northern Neck of Virginia this past weekend. We did a little sight seeing and took a tour of The Strafford Hall Plantation (General Robert E. Lee’s birthplace). We also went to Christ Church, which was built back in 1735. We spent the night in a Cabin at Hertiage Park, a Vinyard and Winery. On the way back home we stopped at the Prime Outlets and Yankee Candle in Williamsburg, Va.
I didn’t find this out until last night. Tim had planned this nice getaway for us. He had bought me a gift and was planning on giving it to me while we were away. Well, once we were almost 2 hours away from home he realised that he had left the gift at home, he forgot to pack it. Poor guy, after all that planning. Anyway last night he told me about it and gave me a diamond necklace, its a Journey pendent. For those of you who don’t know what that is, its a squiggly line of diamonds. They start out small, like your love in the begining and get larger as your love for each other grows through out time, therefore called “Journey”.
This is not a picture of mine, but it’s exactly the same.
