We love living in Virginia, where we're surrounded by so much beauty. Seeing the vast array of fall colors in the Blue Ridge mountains nearby (and even in our own backyard!) is stunning! Each year I continue to be amazed at where I live. Growing up in Texas where you had two leaf colors-- green, then brown--- I don't think I'll ever take it for granted!
But as we Virginians enjoy the most beautiful time of the year, we know what lies just over the horizon...
LEAVES!! And lots of 'em.
What's a November around here without raking and blowing leaves?! I guess it's the price you pay for all this beauty.
Thankfully this year we have an EXCELLENT helper. (who was VERY excited to receive a kid-sized rake of her own and actually pulls her own weight around here!)
