Ever since I left for college, I’ve come to appreciate Charlottesville more and more…the Lawn, Bodo’s, downtown, old friends. I was home this past week with my boyfriend Josh. Everything is just about the same, in a good way, back at home, except for a few new stores, like the Urban Outfitters that just opened at the former old Hardware Store. I took Josh to Timberlake’s Drugstore, which is now the oldest shop on the downtown mall (open since the late 1800s), with an old-fashioned lunch counter in the back of the store (think pork BBQ, grilled cheese, shakes and malts). I hope it never closes.
We also took the requisite walks along the Corner and around the UVA lawn, where graduation had just taken place a few days earlier.
I also just started a Shutterfly site, where I’ll be posting all my pictures over the summer, since I only have space for a select few on this site. The URL is www.somewherenearhere.shutterfly.com or click the above picture. All of my future photo posts will link to the site as well. Enjoy and post comments!
