Sara’s Bachelorette

Hi! I am in northern Virginia for Sara’s bachelorette. Sara and I met in 2005 when I was working with her roommate, (soon-to-be-sister-in-law) Catriona. In a few months, Sara is going to marry Nigel, a lovely Welshman. This weekend, while Nigel is in Wales, we are celebrating with Sara’s bachelorette on Saturday and a bridal shower on Sunday. At 7:40am, the fun began with a surprise morning run.

Sara thought she was going on a run with Catriona and Krissy, but the Shannon, Jamie, and Kelly also arrived. Note that Sara is airborne–this will happen a lot today.

Sara said “Oh this is so cool, we should have made t-shirts.” Just then, Catriona pulled out the “TEAM SARA” t-shirts. So happy!

Sara and Team Sara after the run. Kelly and I had a team Sara rest-on-the-bench while the other ladies went for a run. Someone had to handle the finish line!

Our next adventure started at 11am! We surprised Sara with a limo!!! The limo came to Sara’s house to take us away for wine tasting at a Hillsborough. Catriona bought Sara this awesome cowboy hat and a box of fun.

Here is Hillsborough. I took an image VERY SIMILAR to this one 3 years ago. Really, its almost the same image, but different weather.

Now we are at a Notaviva. The owner, Steve, is telling us how he and his wife visited a vineyard on a Friday and bought a farm 9 days later. Living the dream!

Krissy is the GOAT (Greatest of All Time)

Still the greatest….

Dancing. There was music, but not really the kind of music that could inspire these awesome moves.

How did I do this?

This may replace the shot of Sara running as my favorite of the day. Johanna’s hair is awesome. Please note that Johanna is the mother of two wonderful girls.

    The pictures are so fabulous. Randi you are the best photographer ever. Part of me feels like I was actually there on Sat. and part of me is happy I wasn’t:) Can’t wait to see the wedding photos.

    Much love, Cheryl
