52 dates // 16

52 dates // a thousand threads
The date // A little drive around northern Virginia.
The places // Tarara Winery, Catoctin Creek Distillery, and Fire Works… because pizza.
The verdict // The lady likes the gin.

After a thoroughly dangerous trip to the Restoration Hardware outlet (extra 40 percent off what?) Mark and I found ourselves with a gorgeous 70 degree day and a choice… go home like responsible adults, get our chores done, and eat a healthy meal… or wander around northern Virginia for a few hours, drink some wine, sip some rye, and stuff our faces with pizza to the tune of some drunk guy at the next table with an overwhelming amount of testosterone (his words // *winning).

We took the long way around, caught each other up, made jokes that were only funny to us… then wandered on home to relax before drifting off to bed.

… because who wants to be a grown up anyway? I’d rather have the gin.

    Beautiful images and sounds like the perfect afternoon. The title “Date Sixteen” intrigued me, is this a series? I couldn’t seem to find a tag to stumble onto others.

      Thank you, Kate!! It is a series, we decided to document one date for every week in 2014. Sorry the tag is so hard to find! I added a link at the bottom of the post to lead you to the rest of the series. 🙂
