virginia is for lovers!

our flight was delayed sunday evening from virginia to new york 
{boo weather}. 
at first we were excited! {stuck in a teeny tiny airport for hours!!! imagine!} but we were over the delay after about ten minutes {who wants to sit and wait for 4 whole hours?} so we decided to go play games in the airport. 
did you know “virginia is for lovers“?!
we didn’t….
let me introduce you to all the “lovers” merchandise for sale in the williamsburg airport…


{virginia is even for drunk lovers!}


husband is so much fun to play with. 
but then he got sleepy {i can’t really blame him} 
and took advantage of the delay and slept for a few hours.  
i preoccupied myself with a caesar salad and some reading.
we certainly hope this is the last we experience of delays this season.
crossing our fingers we have better luck with the trip out west next week…

    our friend does some work for The Martin Agency in VA (they came up w/that slogan). I like the logo, it’s definitely the little heart that makes it!

    Delays are so much more fun with you have someone to spend them with! And you guys got some cute pictures out of the process!

    But OHIO is for lovers! At least, according the Hawthorne Heights.

  4. Thanks for the laugh this grumpy and overcast morning!

    I love it. Wish we had a slogan like that!

    You two are such a riot, always.

  6. I have that exact first t-shirt… my best friend is from there, so of course I needed to represent!! Also, my flight got canceled TWICE from Philly to Atlanta because of the weather… I ended up having to drive back. It was an intense 13 hrs…

    I have traveled a LOT and been delayed in many airports, but never Virginia. Had no idea it was “for lovers.” Good to know.

    awe… i love the slogan of my home state. when i moved away for college, i actually picked up one of those t-shirts – which i still sleep in every now and then. years later, i never moved back and now this post has made me homesick. :(
