Sometimes a quick trip to a new town is all you need to clear your head and gain a bit of inspiration. This past Saturday, Roanoke, Virginia offered me and my two buds just that. 

We filled the day with fresh flowers, walks along the farmer's market, soy cappuccinos, endless boutique shopping, and many "this was such a good idea. what a lovely day" comments.

We had a LOT of fun in La De Da boutique and spent quite a bit of time trying on shoes in 310 Rosemont. Mill Mountains Coffee gave us the energy we needed to keep shopping and the sweet farmer's market gave us the delicious pastry samples we wanted so we wouldn't have to pay for breakfast. College...right?

Chocolate Paper was one of the highlights, because who doesn't love a store where you can buy homemade fudge as well as the most adorable greeting cards all under one roof. 

Before heading home, we grabbed a beautiful bouquet of flowers that was the last hint of summer and a $5 succulent to fill my last empty bowl in my room. And, of course, a group of 3 girls couldn't help but swing in to Ulta on the drive back home through our glorious Appalachian Mountains. 

So until next time Roanoke. You were just what I needed. Simple and sweet.
