Favorite Things- Virginia Edition

1. My parents house- I love the view, it is so peaceful and relaxing, always good food, and someone to get up with your kids and let you sleep in, and more flora and fauna than smart son can take in, pear trees, chokecherries, snakes, skinks, deer, bunnies, groundhogs, luna moths, birds, frogs, bats

2. Ukrops chocolate frosted donuts- hands down the best in the world

3. It is home- my house is in Massachusetts but the place that truly makes my heart feel at home is Virginia

4. Friends- I love to go there because it is where many great people are, people who are amazing examples, mentors, and friends. And there is always a party to be a had: a shower, a wedding, a birthday soiree, a dinner party.

5. Family- my parents, aunt and uncle, grandmother

6. Southern gentility- people wave you in when you drive in traffic, say ma'am and sir, and exchange pleasantries

7. Lush green, things just grow there- magnolia trees, blooming flowers

8. It has everything- beaches, mountains

9. Fun places- charlottesville, williamsburg, richmond, northern Va, Va beach

10. Fun luncheon spots, resteraunts, boutiques

That sounds great. I hope my children have such warm feelings about my home when they are adults.

I love how green it is. That is one thing (besides humidity. holy cow) that stands out from my short time living there.

there's no place like home.

Sounds wonderful. I absolutely love magnolia trees. We had one at our last house, and I am going to try to grow one here. Sounds like you had a fun vacation.

I feel relaxed and at home just reading about it! As much as I love (LOVE) living in Idaho, the East Coast has a special place in my heart. I hope we'll make it to Virginia sometime!

It really is a great place. I feel the same way about CT and it's sad that I never get to go there anymore
