Next in my series of 'Favorite Places' posts (kinda like Oprah's 'Favorite Things' without the free stuff) is an awesome place called Winery 32 in the beautiful metropolis of Lucketts, Virginia! We've been hanging out at Winery 32 regularly since they opened in July of 2014. We'd moved to Lucketts in February 2014, so visiting … Continue reading Winery 32
Let's see where did we leave off? Oh yeah, we'd visited Edgegrove Farm in Purcellville and had an encounter with a goat that was very suspicious of our motives and a poor sheep dog who just couldn't get no respect. If you haven't read the first installment of this thrilling adventure you can find the … Continue reading 2017 Spring Farm Tour – part Deux!

This past weekend, the youngest member of our squad graduated from James Madison University! I am so excited and proud of him and couldn't wait to attend the graduation. I was talking to our friends at Terra Nebulo about our weekend trip to Harrisonburg and they told me that Cave Ridge Vineyard, the winery owned … Continue reading Heading West for a special weekend…
We stumbled upon Terra Nebulo (like literally stumbled, it was the last stop in what was admittedly a pretty long day….) quite by accident.
