Heading West for a special weekend…

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 …
