  1. Richmond is so fun! And the great thing about moving from CVille to RVA is that you don’t really have to give up your networking that you’ve been doing in CVille, it’s only an hour away!

    Welcome to the River City! Not sure what you’re looking for in apartments, but there are several complexes around my townhouse on the north side of town (think I-95 & I-295 interchange in Henrico County near Hanover). I think there are even townhomes for rent in my little neighborhood. I like where I live… convenient to the interstates, shopping is close, and there are 3 Starbucks right here (standalone, and then 1 in B&N, 1 in Target). I would also recommend west end of town (Short Pump area) for you guys if you want to be convenient to your Charlottesville-area clientele. It can be a bit more expensive out there, but there are also lots of apartments, condos, townhouses, etc. I’m a “north of the river” girl, so I can’t comment much on Chesterfield… it’s a bit more spread out though and they have toll roads. Churches — Don’t know which denomination you’re partial to, but I attend Glen Allen Church of Christ in western Henrico (right off I-295 and Route 33)… we have a pool! (Hahaha!) We’re not too big, not too small (about 200 regularly attend Sunday AM)… I’ve been a part of this church family since we moved to Va. when I was 7. If interested, our web site is Feel free to visit!

    I will be signing up for those coffee dates! You two are an awesome couple with so much support for one another — it’s inspiring to me. I hate that your going farther south but so excited for you all too. I’ll be emailing you the few connections I have. Richmond is going to love you!! 🙂

  5. Lizzie says:

    I am so pumped for you guys! Richmond will be great 🙂

    If I had to move to somewhere else in Virginia, Richmond would be it. You’ll make lots of contacts for wedding and I know you’ll do great things! I hope packing goes well and that you manage to stay as stress-free as possible!

    I just started reading your blog not too long ago, but I’m super excited that you’re moving to Richmond! I’ve lived here my whole life and I absolutely love it!! There is so much to do here 🙂 It’s a great place to live, and love, and work! I’d love to chat more if you have questions…! -Jenn

    Yay!! You’ll be a bit closer to me! 🙂

    Richmond is small for a city, but since there are a couple of major universities around, it should definitely spice it up some with unique flavors in lifestyle and activities. There are a bunch of cute small shops, cafes, and restaurants — oh, and some venues for indie concerts, like the Canal Club. There are also the mainstream malls, like Short Pump (awesome outdoorsy mall, even when it snows) and Regency Square. There was a delicious bagel sandwich shop near VCU’s Medical Campus; I don’t remember the name, but I think it was called Einstein. Well, all I remember is that it was next to a McDonald’s. Oh! And the Christmas deco in downtown is pretty. I hope you enjoy it down there!


    P.S. If you ever take a stroll down the canal, make sure you don’t go alone… I found it a bit eerie at times even when I was with my friends.
