Singing Valentines - in Charlottesville!

What a great idea.  The Jefferson Barbershop Chorus will have one of their quartets sing a Valentines to your special someone.  Singing Valentines  I repeat - what a great idea.  All you have to do is contact them, tell them an approximate time they should arrive, where they should arrive and wait them to wow your partner.

Engagement Weekend at Foxfield Inn

WOW, what a weekend it was last week.  We had two very special young couples become engaged while staying here.  The other three couples were celebrating anniversaries.  Love was definitely in the air.

The first couple to get engaged arrived on Friday night.  On Saturday they visited some wineries in the area and came back for a short walk down the country lane adjacent to our property.  They visited with the neighbors cows for a bit and then came back.  When they got to our gazebo he asked her to marry him - and she said yes!  When they were ready to go out for a very special dinner at The Ivy Inn to celebrate we took their first engagement photo.  I forgot to ask their permission to show it here - if only you could see the smiles on their faces!

The second couple arrived on Saturday.  He put a lot of thought and effort into their special weekend.  On Sunday after breakfast they went to the Glass Palate in town where they made a beautiful glass picture frame.  He then dropped her off at a local spa so that she could have a relaxing treatment while he came back to the inn to prepare the room.  Rose petals lead the way from the room door to the bed where there was a special banner wrapped in red ribbon for her to open with the proposal.  As you can see it was very romantic.  They also had their first engagement photos taken here - and the smiles on their faces were non-stop.

As one of the women who were celebrating their anniversary said - "It makes you want to get engaged all over again! "
