One thing I love about being in DC vs FL is the blogging community here.
I couldn't find bloggers to connect with in FL to save my life.
Here, I've found Chelsea from Life is a Sunset.
She is the bomb!
We're both members of The First Wives Club, which we all know is hard to come across.
Our first meeting, we were too busy talking, chowing, and devouring cupcakes to snatch pictures.
This time, we had so much wine flowing, the pictures turned out crappy.
None the less, here's proof our night existed.
|Notice our empty glasses ;)|
One of my favorite places in NoVa is the Whole Foods in Fairfax.
It's MASSIVE and has all these little restaraunts inside that are fabs.
They have THE BEST pulled chicken BBQ ever.
We decided on some sushi to start, grabbed it to go, and bee lined it for the upstairs wine bar.
Yes, my Whole Foods has an upstairs wine bar.
I had never been before when I lived in Fairfax previously, but always wanted to go.
I was SO THRILLED when I walked in and it was reminiscent of Wine Room where I grew up in WP.
I had never found another wine bar that had wines on tap, but it's the most brillz idea ever.
During the week, they offer free appetizers and you can order things like cheese plates or just grab something from one of the mini restaurants below.
They give you a little swipe card for free that you load with however much money you want for the night.
At each machine, you slide your card in & select the pour amount, sip, and enjoy!
It's the best!
Anyway, I am so happy to have been able to connect with Chelsea and to have a new girlfriend who "gets me."
The roller coaster ride of divorce and heartbreak is not easily understood and we both can relate to one another's issues.
So much so, she pointed me in the direction of an incredibly eye opening website called "The Path Forward."
I have SO much to blog about regarding this now, so you have been warned.
