Highlight Reel

Week in Review: Day Six

(Sometimes it’s tough to feel at home in your own city.  Which is why I’ve given myself a challenge:  each day, for forty days, I’m going to find *one* thing I love about this place.  And then I’m going to tell you about it.  If you want to follow my journey, start here.  Today is Day Six.) 

Sometimes a quick glance over your shoulder casts everything in a new light.

That’s why, each Sunday night, I’ll be posting a collection of images from the previous week — some of them highlights from the posts you’ve already seen, some previews of what’s to come … and some just little flashes of gratitude and goodness that I’ll probably never have any words for…

This week I decided to see my city differently.

I took my first painting class since elementary school.

I walked the greenway in search of secret messages.

I saw Cirque du Soleil (twice!), cheered for the Hokies at Lane Stadium (we lost — and I’m still grateful for the opportunity to cheer), discovered a special box of chocolates in my mailbox, searched for treasures at the local farmer’s market, hiked a new trail with a friend, tried a new restaurant with a beautiful couple I’m just getting to know, and watched a perfect sunset.

Dear Star City:  so far, you’re looking pretty good.
