A banner weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains

We're returning home today from a great weekend in Virginia. We stayed in Wintergreen resort and used it as our home base to explore the area {I recommend a trip to the spa if you stay here}!
This is our weekend in pictures:
The view from our balcony was beautiful
We took lots of walks with the dogs

Went wine tasting, Veritas was my favorite

Next time we see these two we'll be celebrating the arrival of their first child- I can't wait to meet my new niece or nephew!
We went zip lining- it was my first time, can you tell I look nervous?!
On Monday we went into Charlottesville.

Be warned, most restaurants are closed on Monday, but we got lucky and enjoyed a great lunch outside at Hamiltons.
Our visit to Monticello was tremendous. The veggie garden was incredible and probably a highlight of my trip!

And we capped the weekend off celebrating my MIL's birthday. We made the yummy pie I blogged about here. It was delicious!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!

Sounds like an amazing weekend! I love the mountains so much, wish we got up there more often. Luckily a good friend of mine is getting married in Banner Elk in September, I can't wait! Love your teal dress.
