the rest of richmond

Since Clarke had vacation days left at the end of the year we stayed in Richmond the week after Christmas. We had a great time getting to see family and friends. 
As many of you know my birthday is the day after Christmas. I went out to lunch with family and dinner with friends. This was our 10th annual girl's Christmas dinner as well. 10 years we have been celebrating Christmas together, enjoying a nice meal and sharing memories over the past year and hoping/dreaming about the upcoming year. Such a great time. 
One of the nights we were there a bunch of us went to Lewis Ginter to see the lights. Chloe loved running around and seeing everything.
I also got to get Chloe's handprint made. She loved painting and "helping".
Later that day me and Clarke had a date night. Thankful for family that will watch Chloe so we can have some time to ourselves. We had to drive around and see the tacky lights. They just aren't the same here in Winston!
Once again my mom stayed with Chloe on New Year's Eve and me and Clarke got to go out! We just hung out with friends, nothing fancy but it was a fun way to ring in the new year. 
New Year's day we drove back home after being gone for a week. It feels good to be home, but there is always a part of me that misses Richmond after being there. It was a great week.
