RVA by day…

I have this condition where if I have a minute of free time, I want to cram every ounce of fun into it. #cantstopwontstop anyone? The day after Sarah and Jason’s Richmond wedding, I had little on the agenda except to make it home by 5ish. That never happens. I let myself be a feather in the wind and before I knew it, I was sound asleep in my bed with a brain full of new memories. I’ll let the pictures guide you through this cloudy-turned-sunny Sunday but keep in mind…this all happened in a matter of about seven and a half hours.

Enjoying amenities at the Crowne Plaza in Richmond and feeling a little Hockney-esque.

If not, you should really make a point to hit this place up the next time you’re in Richmond. We were greeted by a man that said if we didn’t drink a bloody mary we weren’t welcome to stay. And I believed him.       …two please.FCLIMG_5081 FCLIMG_5077 FCLIMG_5088 FCLIMG_5092C FCLIMG_5093FCLIMG_5112 FCLIMG_5103C FCLIMG_5105 FCLIMG_5096CFCLIMG_5114

Ben got a case of Millie-gut….FCLIMG_5118

We were lured by the sounds of music and clatter to the Richmond Farmer’s Market Cinco de Mayo Festival.FCLIMG_5132 FCLIMG_5136 FCLIMG_5137

After more walking and exploring we hit the road, headed home and allowed ourselves to get sidetracked by Pippin Hill. Good decision.
