Reader Survey

We’re over the hump, guys–just two more days till the weekend! Hope you are all having good weeks. Today’s post is something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile…ask for your input on things here on C&L. As much as this blog is a creative outlet/passion project for me, ultimately you’re the readers and I want to make sure I know what you like and dislike, where your primary interests lie, and whether you have any general comments for me or the blog, or even social media content.

Here’s a little survey slash questionnaire–it would mean the world to me if you filled it out! I promise it’ll only take about five minutes. All submissions are completely anonymous, so please be completely honest because I truly value your thoughts + feedback. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes over here that I can’t wait to share with you all, but a lot of the outcome will be shaped by the feedback I receive here. A HUGE thank you in advance…you guys are the best!

Travel Guide: Charlottesville


As you’ve likely heard by now, I spent this past weekend down in Charlottesville with some friends. It was my first time in this favorite VA city and it definitely lived up to the hype! We got in Friday night and spent most of Saturday vineyard hopping. They’re onto something when they say that some country air does the soul good!

This weekend was spent in Charlottesville with some friends and it’s official: fall is here to stay! It was my first time in what seems to be everyone’s favorite Virginia city, and it did not disappoint. We rented a van and did three wineries on Saturday and grilled that night. Getting out of DC for a couple of days was incredibly nice–fresh air and being able to see the stars does wonders!
