Today was a girls adventure that proved that sometimes the unplanned moments are the most fun.
It must have been the fall air, or perhaps the bright sunshine ... or maybe it was the stunning beauty of autumn leaves on the mountains completely surrounding us. What else would explain two perfectly sane ladies who headed out I-64 west to Covington on business ... and ended up following a spur-of-the-moment decision to continue on the extra 20 minutes to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia?
We meandered around the stately and historic Greenbrier Hotel, checked out the huge selection of ornaments at the Christmas Depot, and shopped the multiple retail stores along the hallways. The place was buzzing with leaf peepers and golfers.
And then we stopped in the heart of White Sulphur Springs at a little sidewalk cafe called "50 East" that was perfect for sitting outside, drinking iced tea, and watching the world go by ...
... and sharing a creme brulee. Yum.
They DO call it "wild and wonderful" West Virginia, right?
