As an early birthday treat, Brad and I enjoyed a weekend visiting our lovely friends Tracy and Tim in Chesapeake, VA. We spent Saturday wandering around nearby Old Town Portsmouth.
to the blue and green glass doors,
to the street view,
Of course, the company wasn’t too bad either!
And the food! Yum! Tracy and I both ordered sandwiches and enjoyed (and are now semi-obsessed with) a cucumber, onion, dill, and vinegar salad. If you have a recipe for aforementioned salad, I need it!
After lunch we took a stroll through some of the shops. I love the quirky signs!
The Anderson-Wright Garden shop was my favorite. I promptly fell in love with half the store.
As soon as we stepped through the door, Tracy and I both rushed to get a closer look at these classy lanterns.
These orbs also caught my eye.
At some point in my life I need some rusty keys like these.
I admit to drooling
I’ll take two of these weathered boats, please.
Oh yeah, and can I have the amazing courtyard transplanted to my house?
That’s right, the shop has a courtyard.
I may need to move in.
We ended our outing in VA Beach at the new Town Center area. Where we stumbled upon a gelato shop.
I’m very glad I don’t have one of these nearby because I would find very frequent excuses to eat large quantities of gelato.
Had a massive cookies and crème coffee frappe.

Thanks for having us, Dear Twin!
