Cindy and I got to take a special tour of The Wayside Inn today in Middletown, Virginia. Did you know The Wayside Inn is the oldest inn in the US that has run continually since it first opened in the 1700’s? Also learned that George Washington slept here when he was 16 years old. Pretty fascinating! Please stop by and visit if you are ever in Middletown, Virginia.
Last month we were picked by The Northern Virginia Daily readers as the BEST bakery in all of Shenandoah County.

Thanks to my husband, Jim, and my dad, Roger Husband for all of your love and support xoxoxo
