Location, Location, Location, Blog Fest

Serena is new to the blogging world but has a super cute and creative idea and I knew I had to join in on the fun!

She listed a few towns on her blog and of those you were to choose one and describe what you thought it looked like, you could draw, write a few sentences, or a few paragraphs.

I chose...

Woodsville.

Woodsville, a town where every morning you wake up a cool breeze greets you out the front door. Outside your window trees cover your line of view, the fresh smell of pine fills your lungs. You grab your jacket and boots, it’s always a bit cool, not to worry, you’re always prepared.

You walk down the path you made over the years of growing up in the area, the roads are built within the trees, you can’t see too far ahead so when on foot roads are avoided. You meet your friend a mile down and continue the journey into town, good company keeps you motivated for the warm cup of joe that will greet you when you get to the local coffee shop.

Arriving into town all you see are friendly faces, everyone as happy to be alive as you are. All dressed in their puffy jackets and color coated boots. You have deep red on, it’s your favorite. Walking into Betty’s CafĂ© the aroma of cinnamon fills your nostrils. She bids you good morning and leads you to your usual spot with the frosted window, the warmth from that first cup of coffee and the specially baked cinnamon rolls puts you in a coma that makes it almost impossible to walk back home. Thank goodness your friend joined you because a nice long chat is in order.

There you have it, a description and a serene story of you in such a beautiful place, perfect for the October air. If you'd like to really learn about Woodsville, NH, click here.

Great description, Jen. I loved the image of everyone wearing different boots. It made me think of my childhood and yellow, red, and blue wellingtons. Charming stuff.

What a fun idea. You made me want to visit!

Woodsville sounds so different than my surroundings. I often open the door to smell car exhaust. Or maybe garbage if it hasn't rained in awhile and we haven't had street sweeping in a few weeks.

Joanna St. James said...

cinnamon in my hot chocolate, i want to go to Betty's cafe

Matthew Rush said...

CRAP! I forgot to do this. I'll have to put mine up on Monday. Love yours Jen, well done!

You just made me hungry for freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Jerk. :D

Oh my goodness! It sounds like the perfect fall town! I love your description--I could feel that chill in the air and smell the cinnamon!

Love it! I'd like to go to Woodsville. Fall is my favorite time of the year, and it sounds like Woodsville is the epitome of that season. Nice description!

Your description is so inviting. Mine was more of an advertisement. (But I supplemented with photos). :)
