This post is a little late but so worth writing!! My daughter and I took our first annual girls trip this year and I so hope we continue to do from now on. We met up with our best friends forever in Norfolk, Virginia, where our Ashley lives and my best friend forever, Margaret met us at Ashley’s home for a long weekend in October. We had a blast!!

Me, Margaret, Ashley and Heather. Ashley is holding Molly!
We lazed around in Ashley’s beautiful home in a historic district, we shopped, we toured some historic areas of Norfolk, we ate (no gorged) on wonderful food and laughed until we cried!
Ashley is a childhood friend of my daughter’s that just re-connected this summer and Margaret is my best friend in the whole wide world. We’ve been through a lot together and she’s always there for me.
Here are a few of the pictures we took while on our 1st Annual Girls Trip.
I think this is the USS Wisconsin docked in Norfolk for repairs.
Downtown Norfolk somewhere!! 🙂
Ashley’s living room where we gathered in the mornings and crashed in the evenings!
Her kitchen where we spent more time eating and laughing! It’s beautiful!
It’s the perfect space for her two dogs Molly and Evan, precious Corgi’s.
Ashley’s backyard where we spent our evenings. Surprised the neighbors didn’t have us locked up for laughing so much!
We visited the Virginia Living Museum while there and it’s home to more than 250 species of animals found in Virginia including reptiles, mammals, birds and fish. They provide a sanctuary for orphaned, non-releasable or injured animals.
Heather enjoying the sights at the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News.
Ashley checking out another exhibit. It’s a wonderful excursion and we saw so many animals and their habitats.
I can’t remember exactly what this part was but it was gorgeous stone work.
We talked and laughed so much that I forgot to take a lot of pictures but believe me it was a wonderful trip!
We all cried when we parted but promised to make it a regular visit and our hostess was the “mostess”!! She introduced us to a lovely new friend Sally Haynes who joined us along with Ashley at the farm for Thanksgiving.
It was such a wonderful trip for me and my daughter to spend special time together and to be with such special friends. I’m really looking forward to next years 2nd Annual Girl Trip!!!
