Vacation time! Hubby and I are headed out for a week to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Expect LOTS of “escape cville” blogs upon our return. Also working on restaurant reviews: BBQ Exchange, Korea House, The Clifton Inn. Another foodie giveaway when the Facebook “likes” reach 250! Congratulations to Jennifer Alluisi on winning the first giveaway. Cheers, see you in a week. . .
Whenever I think eggnog, I think of Grandpa John and * that * Christmas. It was Christmas Eve, and I’d driven from Richmond to spend the holidays with Nana and Grandpa John. Except that year Nana was spending Christmas in the hospital. So where in previous years I arrived to a slew of hugs and arms and twinkly lights and music and people and food, that year I arrived to an empty house. Everyone was waiting for Christmas Day to meet up at the hospital, but I couldn’t bear the thought of NOT spending Christmas Eve at Nana’s, so I drove up anyway. And let myself in with the key hidden in the mailbox.
