A breathtaking view for the man who can still take my breath away. Happy, happy 40th birthday to my husband @carl. Sure wish we could hit another national park today, but thanks to absolute ridiculousness with a congress I wish I could fire, we won’t be able to. Sad. #carlturns40 #firecongress #mountains #virginia #ilovetrees #iloveskies #shenandoah #shenandoahnationalpark #autumn #fall #skylinedrive  (at Skyline Drive)

@carl and I just toured the magnificent #luraycaverns for the first time. We loved it. I was mesmerized by this reflecting pool. The formations are spectacular. What a way to spend Carl’s last day in his 30s. #carlturns40 #caverns #luray #virginia #reflection  (at Luray Caverns)
