Weekend in Blacksburg

The Hokies lost. It was cold and rainy. I’m going to lose to my husband in fantasy football this week. Our house is cold and I refuse to turn on the heat in October. I’m cold and tired but wanted to share some photos of the beautiful campus where I spent 4 wonderful years.


The day started off sunny and beautiful out!

Most of the buildings on campus are built from a local limestone known as Hokie Stone.

It was a great weekend.  One of us had to lose and that just happened to be me.

Have you ever been to the Virginia Tech campus?


  1. I have indeed been to VT’s campus. One of my buddies from college (WVU) moved to and still lives in Blacksburg. I visit him regularly. A lovely place on a college football Saturday.

    My wife and I eventually had to combine our fantasy teams. Too much intercouch rivalry….
