A Trip to Winston Salem

A weekend of friendship.

Even when your best gang flocks away, you can always pick up quacking right where you left off.


This weekend, I went down with my friend Sara to visit one of our best friends at Wake Forest grad school in North Carolina. In between eating and drinking, we squeezed in a 7 mile trail run at this gorgeous space.

After the struggle, we soaked in spirits at a local vineyard.

The marriage of tart and rich decadence was quite delectable.

After the wine tasting, we found our appetites desiring sweet seafood at King Crab Shack in downtown Winston Salem.

As it always goes, Sunday morning came quicker than we wanted, and it was time to head home, but not before fueling up at Breakfastime. #omeletsallday
