Custom Sticks Plaque: Ballymena

Posted by #justjenn on

When our friends completed the restoration of this beautiful old farmhouse in Matthews, VA they invited us for a visit.  We couldn't wait to take them up on their offer...and spent a really lovely long weekend there this summer.

Ballymena Matthews, VA

We drove the golf cart down to their bee 'farm'... and the bees looked, ummmm, very happy.

Mostly, we just chilled. We sat on the front porch, swung on the swing, laid in the hammock, and that was just about it.  And, it was perfect.

We wanted to give them something special to say 'thanks' for such a nice, relaxing weekend.  So, we used these images as inspiration....
