About a year and a half ago, a super savvy businesswoman by the name of Malia Paasch (you may have heard of her 😉) came to me as she was closing on the old Freemason Inn off of York Street in Norfolk. She had grand plans to renovate it as well as the little brick building next to it, and needed before and (eventually) after pictures. Well here we are in the final stages of Four Eleven York Inn, and man I cannot believe the transformation!! I just HAD to share a few sneak peeks from our recent shoot. Plus, I’m all about a good detail shot...scroll for my favorite part, the bird keychain 🗝 did you notice them on the walls, too? 🕊
We teased you with our last post about ice cream so here’s the real thing: Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream Macs 🍒

Robert Russa Moton & The Negro Organization Society of Virginia: “Better Schools / Better Health / Better Homes / Better Farms,” is printed on the back cover of a program for a conference held by the society in Richmond on November 6 and 7, 1913. Among the speakers for the program were Booker T. Washington, the local businesswoman Maggie Lena Walker, Virginia governor William Hodges Mann, and Richmond mayor George Ainslie. The Negro Organization Society was a grassroots advocacy association that stressed community self-improvement for African Americans in Virginia during the Jim Crow era. Founded in 1912 at the Hampton Institute by Robert Russa Moton, its motto was “Better Schools, Better Health, Better Homes, Better Farms.” Pursuit of these four goals was considered essential to the protection and welfare of black citizens, especially in rural areas where the great majority of Virginia’s African Americans lived. Over the years, the organization’s actions shifted from building schools to improving education by accrediting more institutions and improving teacher pay. By the 1950s, when the Negro Organization Society had begun to dissolve, the fight for African American civil rights had largely shifted from community and regional organizers to the court system. Robert Russa Moton was one of the most prominent black educators in the United States in the first decades of the twentieth century. After graduating from the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute (later Hampton Institute and now Hampton University) in Hampton, Virginia, in 1890, he served as the school’s commandant of cadets from 1891 until 1915. He was a close friend of Booker T. Washington, the founding principal of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, and the two shared a conservative vision of race relations. #somethinginthewaterfestival

🎉Introducing the new and improved THATCH WINERY!🎉 Our team is thrilled to finally announce our new name, logo and brand. 🍷
The inspiration for Thatch was born out of a desire to honor our winery’s unique elements and our commitment to recognizing the importance of a great craft. We are the only winery in the U.S. with a custom thatched roof. Similar to the tradition of fine thatching, making exceptional wine takes time. And we hope that you all will continue to enjoy this journey with us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’ve visited us recently, you’ve probably seen the enhancements and renovations that have been going on since last fall. There will be more to come as a continued commitment to enhancing the experience you have here. And if you haven’t visited yet, please come see us soon! We’ll be releasing more information and exciting giveaways throughout the day, so stay tuned. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In the meantime, check out our brand new website: www.thatchwinery.com
And thank you to all of our past, present and future guests! Cheers! 🍷🎉

Who else is living for this weather lately ☀️ we’ve been spending almost every afternoon out & about which has brought me out of my winter & first trimester funk for sure 🙌🏻 we’ve been making an effort to spend less time in front of the TV at night & more time OUTSIDE!
I thought it’d be fun to share our go-to outdoor adventures lately that are cheap & fun options in many cities:
•Farmers Market on the weekends (@virginiafarmersmarkets
•Finding an outdoor, dog friendly patio (@stellasgrocery
•Walking to a local park with a blanket
•Long walks in our neighborhood & beyond
