Here are some photos of our 9-day adventure:
We visited an old church that one of our favorite
authors, Sheldon Vanauken, who wrote "A Severe Mercy",
used to attend while living in Lynchburg and writes of in his book
Matty "jumping off" of a cliff
in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
We picked apples! This is me
with the bounty :)
Matt's sister, Joy (who lives in VA),
Matthew & Me
Such a happenin' place!
There were so many cool bridges
and beautiful trees!
Quality time with the Gaffin Grandparents
in New Jersey. They were sweeties!
NY taxi drivers are everywhere and boy
are they craaazy!
We ate at this cute restaurant, of
which the movie "Serendipity" (one of our faves)
is named for. It was scrumptious!
It was a delightful trip, full of adventure, relaxation, and new experiences. But as Dorothy says in the "The Wizard of Oz"....
There's no place like home.
I whole-heartedly agree. :)
P.S. The song "Lucky" that is first on my playlist (scroll down) was Matthew and I's theme for our trip. I think it is quite fitting, don't you?
