Some women like chocolates.
I, on the other hand, prefer a good state boundary.
Since we were both off of work for Memorial Day, my handsome boyfriend took me on a surprise outing.
At first, I thought we were just going to a local park, but … he kept driving.
Strawberry picking? No. The lake? No.
After about an hour in the car, I was starting to wonder where the heck was he taking me.
Suddenly, he pulled off the road. I looked up, and there it was in all of its glory: the “Virginia Welcomes You!” sign.
He told me to get out of the car so he could take my picture with the sign. I was torn about whether to do the one-hand-up pose (elegant, like Miss America) or the two-hands-up pose (unbridled enthusiasm). I settled for just one.
And yes, I was the creeper getting my picture taken at the border.
We went to the veteran’s memorial monument there and then had a picnic by the water. The beautiful weather and fabulous company made for an awesome Memorial Day in another state.
