Virginia Bound...

I'm up in the air and off to one of my favorite cities for a little weekend adventure. I'm quite excited to be heading back to this lovely little state. In honor of my travels, I've decided to post a few fun facts about Virginia.

Did you know...

...Virginia is referred to as the "birthplace of the nation."

...eight U.S. Presidents were born in Virginia.

...the state fish of Virginia is the Brook Trout.

...the first Thanksgiving in North America was held in Virginia in 1619.

...the world's only oyster museum is on Chincoteague Island in Virginia.

I knew that today I had to post the song below. Heather has been singing this Elvis tune to me every since I told her I was Norfolk bound.

I hope your Thursday is truly wonderful. Enjoy!
