A Virginia ChristmasTuesday, January 05, 2016
It rained the majority of the time we were home for Christmas, so much so that I took my Christmas money and spent it on a rain jacket. It was a timely gift to myself since it has rained almost steadily ever since. Because of all the rain, I didn't get very many photos while we were in Virginia. Thankfully, on our last day there the sun decided to come out of hiding and we were able to take a walk around one of my favorite places in Richmond. (You've probably heard me talk about Hollywood Cemetery in this post and this one too.) It was a gorgeous warm day and it was hard to believe that we were in this exact same spot on New Year's Day last year, but freezing our buns off instead of bare legged and wearing sunglasses!
Also, it deserves to be mentioned how glad I am to have a husband who lets me drag him out to cemeteries just for fun. :) It is such a gorgeous place to stroll around when it's too beautiful to stay indoors. They were working on restoring a few of the granite monuments there and it was neat to see the crazy intricate details that go into preserving history like that. I've said it before, but if you're ever in the Richmond area, it really is a must-see. You can check out the list of famous people buried in the cemetery on their website.
