Weekend Recap: Promotion & Town Visits

Happy Monday, guys!

Last week was a busy one and I apologize for not writing more, but I can't wait to tell you what I've been up to!

Wednesday afternoon, Z got promoted to Captain. It was a small ceremony held in the Senate and he was sworn in by Senator Jack Reed. It was a bittersweet moment because this was Z's last big event as a Army officer. Since he was injured in Afghanistan, he is being medically retired, so it was kinda sad to say goodbye to everything he has known for the last 7 years, but we couldn't have asked for a nicer ceremony. Here are some pics from the big day:

C came and showed her support. :)

Then on Thursday/Friday, we went to Middleburg, Leesburg, and Purceville, VA to explore and we had a blast! We had shrimp and grits in Leesburg, peanut soup (a VA favorite) in Purceville, and went antique shopping in Middleburg. I definitely recommend stopping by each of these town's historic downtowns if you have the chance. The food was great, the shopping was fun, and the history of it all was overwhelming. It was definitely a nice way to say goodbye to our home state before our big move.
