Marvelous weather calls for skirts, over-sized sweaters, and posing in colorful doorways. Thankfully there was no shortage of any of these in Richmond this past week. We made two batches of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, snapped up tickets to the sold out Mummy Exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, enjoyed lunch at Dot’s Back Inn (a dive/brunch so good it was featured on the Food Network), and scoped out potential neighborhoods for when we move. I’m dying for city living right now – walking distance of great eating spots, neighborhoods to run in, and old historic apartments.
On the subject of moving, what is your take on city versus suburb living? In Richmond – city equals small apartments and smaller closet spaces, but gorgeous houses/apartments, charm, walking to shops and restaurants. Suburbs here call for better schools, closer to Target, Trader Joes. Even as I write this, the pros for city living far outweigh the other. Any suggestions of nice streets or neighborhoods downtown?
