So far, October has treated us very kindly. We are continuing to settle in, arrange and rearrange, take on home improvement projects, and then re-do said projects. (Who knew staining a table could go so wrong?) But hey, my plants are all around one of our fireplaces and all is well.
We are continuing to learn how to slow down and figure out a new routine in our new little town. Our evenings are often spent with walks around downtown and sunset views from our evening. Last weekend, with the impending hurricane upon us, we decided to evacuate westward. Ben was a champ and drove through the winds and rains, and even humored my crime podcast obsession almost the entire way.
Our dear friends Kat and JD were also evacuating from Charleston and were back in Greensboro which was conveniently on our way to Roanoke. Even if it was just for an afternoon coffee and dinner, it was the absolute best. Gosh, I would do just about anything for more afternoons like that one. I just love ya, Kat.
After the best coffee (IT HAD PEANUT BUTTER IN IT), we met up with Kat’s parents for tacos. I’m not talking your run of the mill tacos. These bad boys had mac and cheese and bbq in them. Divine I tell you. After dinner we said our goodbyes and hit the road for Roanoke.
Although we’ve only lived on the coast for close to a month, it was sure nice to drive through those mountains again.
Sunday morning I met up with my mom for breakfast and Ben went on a bike ride up the mountain and on his way down met up with us. After breakfast we through on our Baum’s BBQ tshirts and made our way to the Food Truck Rodeo to help out my dad on the truck. Ben and I make one heck of a po boy team. If you find yourself in Roanoke, look out for my dad’s truck and then you can thank me.
Dustin brought my favorite little human and dog to visit and really they just stole the show. Now for several pictures of the two of them stealing my heart.
I am obsessed.
I am becoming more and more thankful to call Roanoke home. Although only there for a few days, it was a breath of fresh air and a treat to see our families.
On our way home we hit the jackpot. We passed a random store on the side of the road and decided to made a quick u-turn. We scored this clock, a lantern, and coffee table and successfully crammed them in the already full car.
I’d say our office is coming along quite nicely.
I am in love with this weather and the hints of fall outside our window and downtown.
Yesterday, we decided to eat lunch outside in the park beside our house before spending the afternoon at the beach.
I’m not quite use to the whole practically “living at the beach” thing we’ve got going on. I will say, if Sundays continue to look like this past one, I will be just fine.
So far, so good with this fall season. Excited for the weekend trips we have coming up and praying this weather stays.
