A Lovely Day in Smithfield


Zach and I also used our weekend to visit another cute historical location in Virginia. I swear, we're so lucky that we have so many things to do around here. Smithfield (you know like the ham) is a town famous for it's pork product but it was also a huge town back in the 1700s for new settlers. This place was seriously cute and reminded me of all the other cute main streets throughout the US. We ate lunch at the Gourmet Smithfield Bakery and indulged ourselves on some scrumptious food. Since Smithfield is know for pork products Zach ate a bacon and chicken wrap while I had a veggie sandwich on sundried tomato bread. I couldn't believe how big the sandwich was when it arrived. It definitley would've fed two people.


After our little lunch date, Zach and I headed up the main street to visit some more historical landmarks. One of which was a very old English style courthouse. It was fun talking with the old lady who ran the tour of the courthouse and she even offered to let us sit in the justice seats and take our picture. She was really excited that we were even visiting the courthouse and talked to us for about 30 minutes about the history of Smithfield....I'll spare you the details.


After our little trek about the town we headed up to a boardwalk to experience the swamp lands. This was the best place to take my outfit shots, since the sun was just right and the landscape was just so pretty.







This is definitely a photo heavy post, so I hope I didn't overload you.
