  1. it's so funny to read a blog post about visiting lynchburg! that's where i live, and although i know there are historic places to see, i guess i never think of lynchburg as being a place people from out-of-town visit! if you ever come here again, you should absolutely visit a store called estate specialists. there is one down the street from the coffee shop you visited, and another on the street behind it. they have the best stuff for the lowest prices i've ever seen, and it's always like a treasure hunt!

    also, isn't charlottesville great? i always try to talk my husband into moving there. i love the downtown area, and they've got a great art and music scene.
