In my last post I described the adorable AirBnB two friends and I had rented for the week in West Virginia. We’d booked it because the house was entirely our aesthetic, but we really had no idea what was in the area.

The seasons are a little off this year. I went to Colorado expecting fall colors, but got mostly snow. I wasn’t and am not complaining…it was just unexpected. I’ve got my yearly trip to the Smoky Mountains upcoming and the fall foliage reports are still reporting little to no color. Do I change my plans, … More Bits of Winter In The Fall
