Middleburg is usually a twenty minute drive from Leesburg, but traffic extended the length of the trip.
The orange cones and tractors did not distract from the acres of farm land and horse stables. Older farm houses were close to the main road while the mansions from luxury developments spotted the hills in the distance.
When we finally arrived to Middleburg's downtown, we visited a few shops, including Wylie Wagg, an organic pet boutique. There was a wide range of product for dog lovers--like my family--who are dedicated to giving their dogs a healthy lifestyle, like feeding them minimally processed foods. The employees were easy going and happy to help.
We grabbed some drinks and snacks for the drive back to Leesburg then grabbed dinner at the development's clubhouse down the street. The clubhouse overlooks the golf course and the Potomac River. I guess the Potomac falls under Maryland's state line, so if you were to jump in the river, you would cross the Virginia border.
I ordered a Caprese salad, but did not realize it was going to be more of an appetizer than a meal. It was probably better off because there were free miniature Southwestern burritos and tortilla chips at the bar.
The girls wanted to bake cupcakes one more time, so we made strawberry cupcakes with organic vanilla frosting garnished with fresh strawberries for dessert.

|lou lou boutiques have cute clothes and accessories at fair prices. In Middleburg, there were two locations across the street from each other--one was clothing, the other accessories.|
|Seeing this tavern reminded me a little bit of Oxford.|
