Whew, where did October go? Oh that’s right, on mini-adventures. Emphasis on “mini.” Yep, travel is the word of the month… year… ok, my 20s, but with a few exceptions, I’m not traveling too far.
In fact, I’ve had several sweet weekends in the past month over exploring my old stomping grounds in Winston Salem, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Here are a few highlights…
Camino Bakery with my sweet friend Kimi who I sang with in college! (Did I mention I was in an a capella group in college? haha) This picture is from one of our tour concerts during senior year, many moons ago 🙂
Got to sneak a peak at the WFU women’s basketball practice!
We checked out Hoots Roller Bar – it’s only been open a few days and is certainly off to an interesting start. This is phase one of a revitalization of the West End Mill Works area and I’m excited to go back. Apparently, next to move in are a restaurant, distillery, yoga studio, art gallery and music venue all in the refurbished old mill.
Pumpkin carving and a ridiculously delicious dinner at Elizabeth and Ben’s house. What a treat! However, I can’t claim any pumpkin carving skills so instead I took a picture of theirs… I can vicariously take credit as moral/creative support, right?
So, Winston is a totally underrated town, I’ve decided. And if you ever want to explore it just let me know. I’m down.
