Old-Town Williamsburg, Virginia & a Few Updates

We have a thing for the east coast in the fall. It sucks us in bigtime. The best place to experience it, in our opinion, is in a colonial setting- it's seriously euphoric😍

I spent a lot of time here as a child, and its fun to bring my own little family here now that we live so close by.

We like driving up to Williamsburg (and Jamestown) and spending the day/weekend there. It's like taking a step back in time and it's a great way to slow down the modern-day fast pace of life. For the entire old-town area, there are no streets for cars, so you can let your kids run around with a lot more ease. Juju wanders around collecting acorns, running around the grassy fields, and playing with wood toys while Mitch and I (and my mom this time!) sit on a bench, eat lunch or sip hot cocoa.

I can't express how much I love the beautiful marriage of the natural almost year-round green foliage and the sharp pops of east-coast autumn colors. They contrast so beautifully and are what I think makes the fall season so breathtaking out here.

Sometimes you just gotta sit in a tree.

This is what I'm talking about. Beauty even on the ground, everywhere you look. 

She decided she wanted to lean against this post..? Ha ha. And wave to every person passing by. 

The MOSS, guys.

Already making plans to duplicate every detail in our next home. Don't black lanterns just make you so happy? 😍

In other news, we've accepted a full-time offer with a company that we are reeeeally excited about! For those of you not familiar with the process, Mitch interned with them this past summer and they made us a full time offer for when he graduates, which is next May- so he is in his LAST (!!!) year of school for FOREVER! Four years of grad school and we are done-zo! It's bittersweet.

We'll announce where we are moving soon!
