My girlfriend, Mintra (pictured above), is such a sweet soul. She's kind and caring - the type of person I could call at midnight and know she would drop anything just to talk with me. She and I have a lot in common too, namely skin care, makeup, and nutrition (a girl's favorite topics right?). If you are curious if a new fad diet is really worth all the hype, Mintra is your girl. But, while we like to talk healthy food, Mintra is the queen of sweets. I get all my best D.C. cupcake recommendations from her, so when I began thinking about her upcoming birthday, I knew we needed more than just an average birthday cake.
Through a mutual friend we had been hearing about the best pie place in all Virginia. Unfortunately, it is located almost an hour away from us, so we had yet to try it. So I planned a mini road trip to Roundhill in celebration of Mintra's birthday.
Let me just tell you...the hour drive to The High Hill Country Store was well worth the 5 fruit pie we ate. ;)
After we ate our pie and opened presents, we walked around the cute country store (think Cracker Barrel but a little more authentic). I do think we stood out as city girls a little bit. Not a 100% sure why, but it could have been standing in the middle of the store, holding our iPhones out, and saying, "I don't have reception! How am I going to check into Foursquare??" ;)
I would recommend the store to anyone in the area. It is also attached to a cute winery and art store.
Also would you believe that my friends still complain about me bringing my camera everywhere? You think they would know the drill by now. :)
So what about you? Do you have a favorite local spot that would put a chain store to shame?
That is all.
