I ♥ Virginia!

I may live in Northern California, but I'm actually a Virginia girl. When the cold, Bay Area summers start to get to me (seriously, I have to heat my house to get the temperature above 65 degrees), I jump on a plane and visit hot, humid Virginia. Here's why I love it!

I picked a peck of peaches!

And so many great antique stores, flea markets, and thrift stores.  But, more on that later!


  1. i'm a bit partial to virginia myself. i'm glad you're having a good time!

  2. Makes me want to get on a plane and come hang with you right now! Those peaches....yuuummmm.
    Hope you're having fun :)

  3. Oh SO envious now, I'm sure those peaches are divine! I was LITERALLY checking trulia listings in Alexandria 30 minutes ago wishfully thinking of a move there! No lie! Ugh, hate the fog! And yes, my heater is running right now and my feet are freezing. Have a great time, you're not missing anything here!
