Turning Lemons into Lemonade

This past Tuesday Matt and I had to go to Alexandria, Virginia for yet another attempt at renewing our visas. The odds were against us: we had to leave at 6:30 in the morning to get to our appointment at 11 - we had also just had 10 inches of snow the day before - we are sick of dealing with this visa mess - and had to promptly return to Lynchburg that evening. Calculate the hours -- that would be somewhere between 7 and 8 hours in the car just for that measly passport/visa situation!

Instead of hating our scheduled Tuesday, we made sure we had a bit of fun by visiting Historic Alexandria. It's the cutest, quaintest little place you've ever been! (Shout out to Leslie for the official introduction last month! Because ... a trip in 9th grade to some church there doesn't quite count). 

Center of Historic Alexandria
Look at those lovely streets and my super cute husband!
I'm loving the adorableness of it all!

And possibly the best part of all: Lunch at La Madeleine. Note how there is something strawberry on each of the above plates: strawberry jam, strawberries on spinach salad, and strawberry crepes. Yum!
