Let's kick it old school on this fine Thursday.

Way back when, in May 2009, Kevin and I had been friends for 1.5 years but we had just started dating a couples months prior.  He thought it'd be a great idea to take me to a place where an ex-girlfriend had taken him.  HA!  But in reality, it was the cutest thing ever.  

He told me we were leaving Charlotte one Friday afternoon at 1pm and we just got out of town.  I had no idea where we were going and Kevin just started driving up I-77.  It was lovely.

We ended up in Floyd, Virginia.  A very small town about 30 minutes off of I-77 and such a great place.  Here we are back in 2009.

We be-bopped at the Country Store which was the highlight of that Friday night for the entire town.

We stayed at this bed and breakfast.  This, my friends, was my first experience at a bed and breakfast.  Listen, I don't do sharing with other people and we had to share a bueno.  I think my B&B future was tainted by this trip.

The next day he planned for us to go to a winery - Chateau Morrisette.  What a fantastic day that was!  My first wine tasting ever.  I was so sheltered.

Okay back to 2014.  I got to drive through Floyd on Tuesday of this week and it was so fun to reminisce!  Let me share...THAT b&b.  Yikes!!!

The place we went to dinner while we were there in 2009. Oddfella's.  Yum!

Where everyone boogied on down.

Such a quaint lil town. 

I texted Kevin a couple pictures.  We chatted about how much fun that was and how we should do something like this again soon.  But not at this B&B of course.

I started my blog about 6 weeks after this trip in 2009 so I'm thankful to have relived this and I get to add it to my journal!

That's so cute! We like re-doing dates or re-visiting places we went when we were first dating, too :)

OMG girlfriend! I live in Roanoke which is seriously like 45 minutes away from Floyd! We went there last summer and stayed at a B&B (much different from the one you pictured...hehe). I am glad that y'all had fun. Next time you are going to be close...give me a shout!

I think that's where they have Floyd Fest too, which I hear is a smashing good time ;)

What a charming little place! To have lived in TN and NC most of my life, I haven't been to VA nearly as much as I should've, and I feel like they have so many of these little towns spread around. Putting it on the bucket list!
Also, I'm so with you on the bathroom sharing thing - gave me goosebumps just thinking about it! Ick.

Love it! Reminds me of my husband's home town in Kentucky, sans the creepy B&B!

I love driving through small towns! My parents go to Floyd quite often, since it's near a vineyard they love! What a fun trip for you and Kev!

hahah too cute! Where is Floyd? I'm from Northern Virginia and have no idea where that is! Sounds charming

Chateau Morrisette is one of my favorite VA wineries! I haven't been there, but have tried their wines at many local events, and I keep telling Steve that we need to visit, but it's a long drive from DC, so would need to be an overnight...but we won't stay at that B&B ;)

I'm a VA girl and I love small towns and wine :) I haven't been to Floyd, but it is adorable and looks so similar to the place I call home! Loved your story.
