Exploring the Town with My First House Guest (31 Days of Nest Building: day 11)
Remember last weekend when I said my weekends mostly involve working on the house? This weekend was a treat. One of my best friends visited and we had all sorts of fun while exploring local sights and this small town. (Oh, and in case you're wondering what looks different about me... I got 8 inches of hair cut off.)
We drove out to Longwood Gardens for the Nightscapes exhibit. We binge-watched How to Get Away with Murder. We snacked on black pepper turkey and muenster cheese from the Amish market then went back to the Amish market for more. We went on a Ghost Walk (a 1-mile walk and discussion of this history and hauntings on Main Street). We had delicious foods at local restaurants (sweet potato fries sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and dipped in vanilla cheesecake dip was one of my favorites). We walked antique shops and sipped on a new locally-made coffee.
Part of moving into a new house is exploring the community. Part of it is welcoming your first guests. I got to do both.
Throughout October, I will be continuing this story of getting acquainted with my home and making it my own as part of the 31 days challenge. Catch up on any posts you may have missed here: 31 Days of Nest Building.
