Happy Wednesday friends! Are you guys prepping for Thanksgiving tomorrow? We are just doing a small Thanksgiving this year with my parents which will be nice and low-key. 

Today, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite local wineries since that has been the bulk of our activities this year. There are SO many between Maryland and Virginia but I tried to narrow it down to my top 5 that are within an hour or so from DC. There are tons in lower VA that could be a whole separate post. I tried to stick with those that could be a quick little trip if you're staying in DC!

1.) Windridge Vineyards (Darnestown, MD) - this is the one we have frequented most because it's only 20 minutes from our house and I LOVE the wine! The ambience is nice and we always sit at the Adirondack chairs. You cant go wrong with any of their red wines.

2.) Barrel Oak Winery (Delaplane, VA) - this was the first winery we visited when we lived in Virginia and the best part is it's very dog friendly! They have great wine and their sangria is even better. They also always have some great live music (pre-COVID). 

3.) Black Ankle Vineyards (Mount Airy, MD) - we love the outdoor seating options between their patio/courtyard/lawn seating. The winery itself is also adorable. This vineyard has a great white wine selection!

4.) Stone Tower Winery (Leesburg, VA) - this is definitely one of the more upscale wineries of the bunch and I think is often a wedding venue! The views are gorgeous and it definitely feels like more of an experience. They also have great food!

5.) Bluemont Vineyard (Bluemont, VA) - while the wine here is not my absolute favorite, the views are probably the best of the bunch! It's perfectly positioned at the hilltop overlooking the vineyards and rolling hills. It's pretty breathtaking.

I hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving!

Gift Guide for Him

Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a great weekend. With more friends in town for the holidays, we had a few socially distanced gatherings which was so nice. It's still about 60ish degrees here most days but once the temperatures start really dropping I feel like it's going to be a very long winter! 

I'm kicking off this year's gift guides with some ideas for the men in your life whether it's your husband, dad, brother, etc. I think these would all make great gifts. I actually was very excited about all of these finds and definitely have a bunch of them on my list to purchase as gifts. 

I'm planning to do a gift guide every Monday from now until Christmas so stay tuned!


Classic Duster Cardi Under $30 + FF Link-Up!


Cardigan, Tee, Jeans, Booties (similar)

 Happy Wednesday! I hope you guys are having a great week so far. This week is flying by and I can't believe we're so close to Thanksgiving! Do you guys have any fun plans or are you keeping it more low-key this year? We will just be doing a small Thanksgiving with my parents. 

It took a month and a half to get this cardigan in the mail but it was well worth the wait! For such an inexpensive sweater, the quality is amazing and almost has the same feel as cashmere. I also love that it's such a versatile, neutral piece.
