While in Virginia last week, I got to take a day off , spent two weeks visiting Theta Zeta and Delta Psi, and fell in love with a state I knew nothing about.

  1. During my day off I got to see TWO movies. I have not been to the movies in FOREVER so I was so excited that I finally would get to see both films that I was dying to see: Gone Girl and The Best of Me. Both so different and both so good. I highly recommend both of them.
  2. Charlottesville is one of the prettiest U.S. cities I have ever seen, and it made me remember how much I love fall foliage. I got to walk around, venture into new boutique shops, and try new restaurants. It was a lot of fun. IMG_6977 FullSizeRender FullSizeRender6
  3. I got to visit Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. IMG_6960  IMG_6962
  4. I got to see part of the Berlin Wall which is on display at the University of Virginia in honor of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.IMG_7002
  5. I got to donate and support finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease by eating pancakes.
  6. I went to a UVA football game and cheered the team on from the hill. FullSizeRender3
  7. I got to go pumpkin picking, enjoyed a hay ride, and climbed a big tree stump.IMG_7013 FullSizeRender4
  8. I got to hike part of the Appalachian Trail to reach McAfee Knob for sunrise. IMG_7299 IMG_7365FullSizeRender7 FullSizeRender
