A Wine Themed Wedding | The Williamsburg Lodge

  • Joe + Kathleen

Williamsburg is known for it’s history. Colonial buildings, historic tours, great food… it’s all there. People come from all over the world to visit this historic area and walk the streets of merchant square. As much as Williamsburg is a great tourist location, it’s also a beautiful location to get married!! Joe and Kathleen decided a year ago to be married at the Williamsburg Lodge and it was a perfect pick for them! The lodge is tucked away on one of the side streets of Williamsburg and it’s surrounded by gardens and historic homes. It’s a wonderful location… but the best part is that the lodge is WELL air conditioned!! Yup, it was another hot one! The temperature in the dash of my car read 103 when we arrived

Business Organization | Monthly "Duty" Days

  • Ask Anything

about the “business” end of my work week and how I manage everything. Well, since I don’t have an intern or a paid assistant, I have to be on top of my game… constantly. And that’s hard work.  Running a small business is like raising a child. (Obviously I don’t know what it takes to raise a child but this is the best comparison I could think of!). Why? Because it’s constantly growing, needs DAILY attention and supervision, is constantly out growing itself and the work is NEVER done. Ever. You can’t turn off being a parent and you can’t turn off being a small business owner.

Vacationing on a Houseboat

  • Our 80 Foot Floating Adventure

we took our little boat out on the lake, he would talk about them. In some ways, he almost seemed OBSESSED.  He would say “That’s so awesome! We need to do that! Daddy lets do that one summer!”.  My brother was obsessed with the idea of vacationing on a houseboat.  My sister and I always thought that was the most redneck vacation option out there. Live on a floating TRAILER for a week?! No thank you! But Corey insisted that this would actually be FUN and that we should try something new one year and just DO IT! So we did. This past week my family and 10 other friends broke the mold for family vacation and tried something brand new.
