This past weekend, I traveled up to Virginia where my parents live and spent some time with family. All family members except Scott, my sister in Korea, her husband & daughters were there--we missed them. We also had a few in-laws (another sister's and my brother's) come to visit. My parents had a full house and I loved every minute of the time I spent there! Aside from all of the time I spent with family, one of the highlights of the trip was experiencing beautiful fall days and evenings.
Here's a photo of a beautiful fall evening on my parents' street:
I didn't feel like making the drive, so I decided to take the train instead. I always find that train rides allow me to see the beautiful scenery I'm passing (and, of course, take naps along the way). While I'm driving, I'm focused on the road ahead (as I should be, right?) and exercising my vocal chords by singing along with the tunes on the radio.
I'm not exactly sure where the transition occurred, mostly because it was dark some of the trip but also because I was asleep, but fall has definitely arrived in Northern Virginia! The leaves are still pretty green here. I can't wait until we start to see more oranges and yellows. I guess it doesn't help that it's 81 degrees today, huh?
Someday, fall will arrive in North Carolina. Has it arrived where you are yet?
