Virginia News: Tacky Light Run

I will be the first to admit that I not or ever have been a runner. While I accept this fact, I enjoy a good run in the morning or anytime to relieve stress! So when my sister asked me to run in the CarMax Tacky Light Run in Richmond I couldn’t resist! What could be more perfect than a night run with Christmas lights as your guide?!


As a 6k course, this run is guarneteed to be a spectacular of lights and a sight of your traditional tacky Christmas sweaters! Yes, thats right…tacky outfits are highly encourage! I am so excited to run this race tonight with my sister! Wish us luck!!

Charlottesville Weekend Rendezvous

There is something about the fall foliage, savory red wines and crisp Fall air that draws me to Charlottesville this time of year. This weekend I had the best time visiting a dear friend who happens to live extremely close to some of the best wineries in town. We had a lovely time and I would definitely suggest doing it if you are in the area!

We toured and tasted three wineries on our adventure; King Family Vineyards, Pollak Vineyards and Veritas Vineyard and Winery.

It’s obvious why King Family Vineyards was packed the entire time we were there, because of the best selection of wines that we tasted! Their 2011 Meritage was absolutely amazing and I will definitely have to get a few bottles for the holidays! And, I loved that I ran into a few fellow Richmonders too!




The view at Veritas Vineyard and Winery wasn’t the only thing beautiful at the winery! Who couldn’t “love” this focal point while sipping on some local vino!


If you are doing a wine tour you MUST try at least a few of their cheese selections! While at Vertias we chose their cheese platter and were offered all of this for only $15!! It was absolutely delicious and more then we could ever eat.
