It's My Birthday So Come Walk With Me

Today is my birthday.
I was at 1515 all week and am now back home.
But today before I left I saw so much beauty in the town I was born.
I so enjoy walking up to the courthouse square
The trees in Charleston are always just beautiful.
houses decorated for fall

still have some brick sidewalks
I can remember when the street was brick when
I was a little girl

My Dad's favorite house

love the architecture in town

don't let the ghost scare you!
the trees are really pretty this year

this morning was sunny and warm and perfect for porch
sitting. kinda lonesome since the cousins weekend was cancelled.

I love the house across the street
Heading out of town, do you see old Main ahead
it is a great view from the courthouse down 6th street.

I miss it when I am gone.....but glad to be home with 
Mr., Boots and Greta
Why they even had a dozen red roses waiting for me!

Happy Birthday Anne! Look like you enjoyed a great trip, and it's always great to be back home. Great photos. So love the yellow chairs on the porch. Are they vintage?

I truly enjoyed my walk...this is one of my top favorite things to do...walk and see houses/neighborhood. It is so lovely on this walk...I don't know which home I love more...Happy Birthday, I guess it was kind of bittersweet...wish your family had been there....but you have all of us gals in BLOGLAND! Hope you had a special day~~~~Roxie

Trees are gorgeous! I flew in to Charleston, WV about 12 years ago; it was peak season in the Monagnahela National Forest and the most remarkable leaf looking ever!

Cooler days are coming our way starting tomorrow! I really loved reading your post today. Such a warm and inviting place to visit.
