We haven't been to Virginia to visit our family there for over two years. I forgot the beauty of central Virginia in April. It was a peek into spring fast forwarded four weeks.
Eight hours plus each way in the moving living room we call our car. Mark drove both legs. Such a good egg. I love the 2.5 hour stretch from DC to Charlottesville, but the rest is a slog along I-95. Don't tell him, but for a while there I was behind him with the laptop open, my headphones on watching Marie Antoinette like an in-flight movie.
I really don't mind the drive, but I would love to have family close enough for Sunday dinner.
