Who Says You Can’t Go Home?

Project Beltway

Sorry guys it took me a while to get back into the swing of things this week. I had such an amazingly wonderful, restful time in Lexington and to be honest it was hard to come back.

I went to the drive-in (yes), swam in the river, ate a bellyful of crawfish and lazed around reading on our screened-in porch and gazing at the mountain views. It really felt like a childhood summer.

The heat was breaking over Southwest Virginia as I drove down 81 on Friday. You could see it settling in: this eerily beautiful bright white haze blanketing the fields. As I got into town I rolled all the windows down and practically got lightheaded breathing in the scent of honeysuckle and earth. I couldn’t get over how good it smelled there. Living in the city, even one as green as Washington…you kind of forget.

So when I got into my car on Monday afternoon for the drive back and I had a flat tire, I wasn’t too bummed that I’d have to stay another day.

My sister Liz & her husband Paul threw this Shake Rag party again this year. They assembled some great musicians known throughout VA. Picture genuine & relaxed people…older, younger, all connected with a laid-back vibe, an appreciation for music and food and the smaller, simpler things in life.

I love the city. But I’m a country girl at heart, and it’s going back home that really reminds me what life is all about. We’ll get back to fashion in DC in a minute, but first, a few more photos out at Shake Rag.

I couldn’t resist taking a lot of pictures of kids. They’re just so much cooler than adults. Love this series:
