and we've been here for less than 24 hours. The trip started off with a bang as we headed to Virginia. Jamin' with Linda in the party van was such a blast! Getting to know everyone in the car really made me realize that this group instantly became comfortable with each other and it took no time for us to start cracking jokes and sharing stories. The beautiful sun was so kind to shine on us as we rolled into Arlington. After we settled in and got used to our new home for the next few days, we met the priests of the Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church. They are just such great men and so adorable! We had THEE MOST incredible Pad Thai I have ever had! With our overly full tummies, we decided to check out the FDR and MLK memorial in DC. There was something so beautiful about the night air and the lights reflecting on the monuments that made me so thankful to be apart of this great country. I am so grateful for the historical path paved for my success by these
brave men and women. It was a great first day in Virginia!
