Remembering 2012: Hello, Raleigh

A few weeks after I moved to North Carolina, Shelton and I made our first trip to Raleigh. It was such a fun trip–one that I’ll never forget. Exploring a new capital city that we’re now so close to was very exciting. Raleigh has a beat of its own, and I found the downtown area very open, very pedestrian-friendly, and cozy. There are lots of independent shops and interesting eateries… I can’t wait to go back! (P.S. All of these pictures were taken pre-Nikon and were sized smaller for my other blog.)

 At Beasley’s in downtown Raleigh. Such a cute place!

Dr. Pepper : Texas; Cheerwine : North Carolina

 Chicken + Honey

 Fresh Watermelon with Sea Salt from the OBX (Outer Banks).

Fun tip: the area in NC where we live is known as the IBX, or the Inner Banks.

 The Capital!

I’m a sucker for anchors.

Look out!

 Just a big ol’ acorn.

      It so was! Discovering new places is one of our favorite things to do – can’t wait to see more! :) Thank you so much for your comment!

  1. Wow, you were so organized about everything you wanted to see and do! I guess that’s the way to make sure you use your time efficiently for a short trip like that!

  2. I live fairly close to the OBX in Hpt Roads and have never heard that other area called Inner Banks! Who knew?! My mom grew up and has family in that area too. Learned something new!
    And yep, Cheerwine…NC. :)
    Cute blog….new subscriber!

      Thank you so much for your comment! I’m glad to get to know other NC bloggers :) We definitely love Cheerwine – I’d never heard of it before moving here!
