Today is Ash & I's One year anniversary! It's absolutely crazy that it's been an entire year since getting married in Duck, NC. So this past weekend, as a little celebration, I put together a sneaky outing. She had no idea where we were going, but we started off in Middleburg, which she figured out quickly because it's a straight shot on Route 50 West. Here's a bunch of photos:
At lunch in Middleburg, I think the place was called "Horse Tavern" or something like that.
After Middleburg we set out upon the second leg of our journey. Ash thought we were staying around Middleburg, so when she inquired a couple of times as to where we were, I said the GPS stuck me on the wrong road and we were winding around a mountain back towards the Loudon County area. The weather was perfect.
After about 45 minutes, we arrived to Charles Town Parkway (or something like that). Once we crossed the West Virginia border she knew where we were going. But I must admit, I was impressed I was able to keep it a secret for so long. Ash was a great sport though and didn't pester me too much!

Pretty neat being able to see the horses this close

Here are a few more, so many photos in this post, sorry!
What a fun time we had. We didn't lose too much money on the slots or horses, and actually we were ahead for most of the night.
The next morning, after having a ridiculously delicious homemade breakfast, we got on our way and stopped in Harpers Ferry. The weather turned south, but that area was pretty cool.
We were completely wiped out the next day, but it was well worth it! Thanks to everyone for being with us last year on this day. 1 year down!
