Labor Day weekend always feels like the end of summer. Never mind that it's 90'F and sunny here in the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina! We had a few brisk mornings in Virginia this past week and I've already noticed a few reddening leaves as Autumn starts to make her presence known.
Richmond, visiting Midnight Brewery and going bowling for my birthday; spent an overcast day tubing the James River and managed to acquire some wicked sunburns; enjoyed another "salt pup life" weekend at Kilmarnock on the Northern Neck; and now we're wrapping up the month - and the summer - here in Kill Devil Hills, OBX, with some friends before September creeps in.
September will probably also be a quiet one as family celebrations, obligations, and jubilations leave us with only one weekend unbooked so far. Weddings, baby showers, and a "staycation" girls' weekend will keep us close to home, but allow us to keep saving money towards whatever our next trip may be! We're already back to the drawing board in terms of the next international adventure, and hopefully by Christmas we'll have all the whats, whens, and wheres decided and booked.
But since we're not really going anywhere soon, hopefully that means I'll have plenty of time to finish writing about our past Europe trip! Stay tuned for numerous posts about Rome, celebrating the World Cup in Germany, visiting Strasbourg, France, and other adventures from our two weeks in Deutschland.
my first posts. What started as a venture to re-open the floodgates of my inner writer has progressed into an addicting little hobby! I didn't have a clear plan in mind for this blog when I first started, but now I'm wondering whether I ought to come up with some goals as it continues to grow. I certainly didn't anticipate the great fellowship and camaraderie from wanderlusters and other travel bloggers from all corners of the globe!
Thanks for stopping by!
