We’re finally getting back into the groove of things around here after our trip to West Virginia for Thanksgiving! I rarely get to break away to visit home much, so it basically makes my entire year when I get to see so many people I love in one place. This also marks the second year that Jared has visited my family for Thanksgiving, and since he grew up with Houston weather, this thing called “seasons” that I’m used to is a new thing for him, ha!

Last year he got lucky enough to see snow because a massive cold front came through just in time for our visit, which also left me having to purchase more appropriate winter clothes while I was there (I know, it’s sad that I lived the first twenty years of my life there and couldn’t anticipate that better). Not to mention my Dad got verrrrry excited about showing Jared around for the week and the next thing I know we were hitting every tourist spot and scenic overlook between Charleston and Snowshoe. All I had with me were heeled boots that were NOT made for those 7am-9pm daily extravaganza.

This year I swore I would be prepared (it turns out I was actually over-prepared, doesn’t it always happen that way?!) and it ended up being in the 60’s except for one or two days, so we set out to make sure I got good use of my winter wear and perfect Born comfort boots (super comfy, I wore them the whole week!) while we could. For someone that’s not used to seasons, this means we hunted down the biggest pile of leaves still left to play in. Oh, and I also forced my Mom to make her blog photo debut, too, muahaha! No, but seriously…

This is entire time she’s refused to be in photos, so I did some mild convincing to let her believe I just wanted to take photos to show off my sweet, new genuine leather boots to rope her in. It also didn’t hurt that I said she could toss leaves on me… and that I didn’t ask permission to share the photos first, ughm. Sorry Mom, love you!

Jared was really into the major leaf situation, but I chose to leave out the photos of him attempting cartwheels in the field. Maybe one day you guys will be lucky enough to be graced with that ridiculousness. ;)

Good news is that this year’s boot choice also double’s as city appropriate, and that’s what I call strategic packing, my friends! You can also snag my gloves, scarf, and jacket, too.

Naturally we would also find one of the only colorful walls in the city. Priorities my friends, priorities! I hope you all had a great holiday break, we’re thankful for all of you, too!

    I read your blog all the time but I didn’t know you were from WV! I grew up near Snowshoe and live near in Greenbrier county now, I can’t believe you were visiting so close by! Looks like a fun trip :)

  • I grew up near Charleston and this gave me major homesickness. Also, ginkgo leaves are the best ever. Glad you had a great trip!
