A Virginian Birthday

August 27, 2014


Oh, the allure of Tim's Rivershore. If I were asked to list the things that I miss about living in Stafford, VA, Tim's would be at the top! This restaurant boasts expansive views of the Potomac River, an ourdoor seating area large enough to host dozens, live bands, specialty drinks, and seafood that will ruin you. I'm serious. Tim's snow crab legs will change your life. 

After photographing my very first wedding on Saturday, I was privileged with the opportunity to visit with my great friends, the Waters family. After offering to take me out for my birthday, I jumped on the opportunity to visit Tim's!

This particular night could not have been more perfect. The weather was cooling off as we were arriving, the restauant had no wait, and just LOOK at this view! 


I couldn't make myself sit still. I hardly had time to order my water before getting up to snap some more landscapes.


After seeing me jump up to snap some photos, sweet Georgia was determined to join me. You can see her efforts to hurry Courtney, her mommy, along Tim's dock. 


Before our food was prepared, Tim's blasted some country music. Georgia couldn't stand to stay in her chair with such dance-worthy music! What's a birthday girl to do? Dance with a toddler. I have to admit, Georgia is one of my favorite dance partners.

Oh, did I mention the food? 


We finished up dinner and sightseeing with plenty of time to ask our waitress to snap a shot of us. The sun was about a half hour from setting as we finished up dinner and started to head home - a recipe for beautiful landscapes. I couldn't pass up on the opportunity, and I am glad that I didn't! 

In summary, I enjoyed a beautiful birthday with timeless friends. Maybe next year my Hubby can come along!
