For the Fourth I’m going to visit one of my best friends in Virginia. This is how I’ve been explaining it to people: I’m going to visit my friend who lives with her uncle in the woods who’s a priest who has chickens and brews his own beer. tehe. awesome!
I’m really excited about the chickens. I’d love to have a chicken coop one day! What’s better than fresh eggs?!
We’re going to go hiking and visit vineyards and maybe shoot some guns. As a hostess gift I decided to bring something easy, delicious, and Fourth of July themed. I picked up some red, white and blue popcorn and M&Ms at a local shop and then whipped up some cookies. With the M&Ms, not the popcorn.
