Every year, a group of my closest college friends get together in the mountains of Virginia. We sit by the pool, drink wine, reminisce and explore. We’ve gone hiking, visited local breweries and wineries, and even enjoyed a local polo match. It’s a unique escape from the real world that I look forward to every year because when we’re on the farm, we don’t have to worry about real life. We don’t have to think about the outside world unless we want to. It’s a great opportunity to talk our lives — weddings, mostly — or get some advice on things we are struggling with, or even find support for big life changes.
With everyone spread out across the country, having a place where we can get together and catch up is invaluable in these post-college years!
