Author's note: After a long hibernation this site is back. It has been a very very busy year of travel, including a trip to California, many trips to Florida, and a visit to Amsterdam and Paris. More content and photos are coming soon! I promise!!

Last May, I took a long weekend trip out to Charlottesville, Virginia. This city in central Virginia is the home of the University of Virginia and all things Thomas Jefferson, including his self-designed home, Monticello. It is also in the heart of the Virginia Wine Country, which makes it a tasty place to visit as well. The wine was great, but the view was also amazing. Below are some of the photos I took during our winery tour as well as in and around Charlottesville.
