Two weeks ago, I visited my friend Casey in Richmond! Casey and I originally bonded in the bathroom after gym class in middle school because I admired her scented glitter spray from Bath and Body Works. Fifteen years later we are bonding over our shared love of Yelp and our recent engagements! Go us — I love long time friends!
Richmond has a nasty reputation as a hood rat city but that could not be further from the truth! The city has a vibrant artistic community with tons of cute, locally owned shops. While I was there, they were hosting a French Film Festival at the Byrd Theatre which is a beautiful, historic theater right in the heart of Carytown. I had such a lovely visit full of brunching, thrifting, wine tasting, and shopping! Richmond is such a wonderful city.
Here are a few photos from my trip!
