A Great Bed and Breakfast Weekend

We received a wonderful surprise gift from our friend Jacquie in Massachusetts... she gave us a weekend in an elegant and wonderful (2 year old) Bed and Breakfast in Orange, Virginia this weekend! We totally recommend staying at the Chestnut Hill Bed and Breakfast in Orange, VA. - The owners, Kathleen and Troy are awesome, and the place is an old mansion that they bought at auction for $1.00 and totally renovated into a gorgeous place. They just had to move the mansion about 400 feet from it's original place (which they did).
 - Each room was gorgeous and incredibly clean. They've been open 2 years and redecorate each room annually. They landscaped a beautiful back yard with fountains and patios, and have a large screen and bar in the lower level. The dining room is reminiscent of an elegant room in some 1800s mansion.
 - We highly recommend staying there. Here are some photos (although they don't do it justice). GO THERE! MORE INFO: http://www.chestnuthillbnb.com/
Thanks a million, Jacquie, this was incredible!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
