 77+ Best Things to Eat, Drink, and Do in Richmond, Virginia

There is so much to adore about this city in the heart of Virginia-- from the food, the art, the coffee and beer and cider, the endless festivals, the outdoor options, the tattoos... it's a hipster heaven.

Twin Hickory Neighborhood

One of my favorite parts of coming to my parents' house in Twin Hickory is taking walks through the neighborhood with my mom and our miniature schnauzer, Uli. The neighborhood around my apartment is slightly sketchy for strolls, so I always try to squeeze a walk in when I visit Mom and Dad. 

This morning, the weather was too perfect not to be out in, so I took Uli and threw on a flannel and my Nikes and set out on a walk. It turns out I can even get lost in my old neighborhood, so our little walk ended up being more than 2 miles, but it was a beautiful way to start my Saturday sabbath.

Enjoy some of my favorite shots from this morning!

St. Christopher's Neighborhood

I've always loved fall (no secret there), but this year, nannying two little energetic boys has made me see the season in new ways. We go on a walk around their neighborhood almost every afternoon, racing scooters down hills and digging for worms or slugs and jumping on every crunchy leaf in sight. 

Every day, I'm learning to look up and look down and be present. I've seen beauty in places I might typically have overlooked, and I'm learning to embrace childlike curiosity and wonder in my life more.
