Happy Friday Richmond Friends,  I hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend , the weather was perfect! Next up, July 4th fun. We have added tons of fun to our calendar and our Pinterest board is full of ideas to make, cook and do! This weekend is Country Fest at Innsbrook After Hours, check out the performers here

We took a ride to the beach last week, it was just a day trip, but it ws so good for my mind and body . It really is my happy place! I am working on a fun local trip idea article for next week, last week's day trip ideas was so well received!
