Yet another month has come and gone. Weather-wise, I think September has been my favorite of all the months we've spent at home this year. The mornings have been cool and refreshing, but we've still enjoyed a few hot and sunny days as summer gives out her last few gasps for the year.
St Benedict's 10th Annual Oktoberfest. And with our foray into the Oktoberfest celebrations, our travel bug has been inflamed once again, and we've started researching in earnest as to where our international travels might lead us next year.
I have a feeling that October (and probably every month until spring) will have only modest travel activity. International travel is certainly out of the budget for a while as we continue to save, and the holidays will keep us (and everyone else!) quite busy. But we do plan to pet a few bunnies and coo over some baby ducklings at the State Fair of Virginia, check out the Deutscher Club of Richmond's 46th Annual Oktoberfest celebrations (can you tell I'm a little obsessed with all things Oktoberfest lately?!), sip more than a few Virginia wines at the 12th Annual Powhatan Festival of the Grape, and wrap up October with a little bit of Halloween shenanigans. Oh, and a little kitten showed up at our doorstep and decided to adopt us, so we've got our hands full with a curtain-climber and dog-tail chaser!
The as yet unnamed feline we refer to as "Kittles and Bits" until we come up with a proper name!
As always, I'm so excited and blessed at all the comments you all continue to leave on my blog posts and am continually amazed by the camaraderie of the travel blogging community in general! Although our feet may be firmly planted in the East Coast of the U.S. for the next few months, I still feel like we can continue to "travel" vicariously through your trips. too!
So what's on the books for your October?
