I’m a little in denial that today was my last full day in Lexington. Tomorrow morning, I will be packing up all my things and heading to Washington, DC for my spring internship. As excited as I am to start working at the Pentagon, it’s definitely a little bittersweet. My boyfriend will be graduating at the end of this month, and we will officially become long distance as he heads off to flight training to become a pilot in the Air Force! I will see him again for his commissioning ceremony in May, but this will be the last time we are both living in the same city for quite awhile.
William and I celebrated my last day in Rockbridge County with a trip to the Roanoke mall. Unsurprisingly, I spent a small fortune in Sephora, and he graciously didn’t complain when I dragged him shoe shopping. (To be fair, we also spent a considerable amount of time in Sears looking at tools, auto parts, grills and lawnmowers.)
William bought me this Alex and Ani bracelet as a goodbye gift, which was incredibly thoughtful! I love the mermaid and the nautical inspiration.
On the way home from the mall, we decided to take back-roads to enjoy the beautiful Virginia scenery. I will never get used to the mountains! During the springtime, the Blue Ridge Mountains are a stunning backdrop for an otherwise completely green landscape.
We stopped to take some pictures in this field and I love how they turned out. The faded lighting looks almost vintage, and you can see all of the colors of a perfect spring day in rural Virginia. I will miss this view when I head off to the big city life in DC! I’m wearing another of my favorite new dresses from Old Navy. I am so happy with the length and the relaxed fit, and you can get it on sale now from the Old Navy website.
What are you looking forward to this spring? What words of encouragement do you have for me as I head off to my internship? I’d love to hear from you in the comments section!
