Husband's Letters: Dear Mrs. Loerke, next Fall we plan on taking a foliage trip to New England. Thankfully we have an inspirational view from our office window. Dear Papa, this Sunday we get to spend 6 hrs together before business takes you to Ft. Worth. Get ready to bond over fried turkey and applesauce spice cake! Dear Uganda, I am humbled to have the opportunity speak in your country this Spring. You will teach me far more than I could ever teach you. Dear Emma, I can't get over how good you look in your new jeans. I'm the luckiest man in the world to be married to such a beauty!

Love,
Tim

Have any of you ever been to New England in the Fall? Do you have any recommendations on places we should visit? Sidenote: Remember Emma's jean dilemma? The good folks over at Silver in Denver, CO sent her a pair of these and I can't tell you great she looks in them!

The east coast of Maine is BEAUTIFUL in October. Plus as an added bonus, Em can visit an old JUC friend (aka Me - Christine ;)

Going to Uganda sounds amazing! My friend is in South Africa with YWAM at the moment

I've never been to the east coast at all, but I would love to go in the fall since that's my favorite time of year. G-d couldn't have picked a better pair for Uganda.

I am a Vermont girl, born and raised (currently living in Birmingham, AL)! There is no more beautiful place in all the world than Vermont during foliage. Truly breathtaking views and all the little towns, bed and breakfasts and restaurants along the way are just perfect.

I travel to Vermont every year, and Woodstock in particular. I can't recommend the Blue Horse Inn highly enough - the owners are unbelievably lovely and you will have the best breakfast of your life every day. It's beautiful! Plus lots of fab hiking trails/kayaking etc near by. DO it!

SIL, Can't wait until Sunday. Fried turkey and cake....what else could I ask for? Perhaps lots of hugs. Will my daughter be wearing her NEW jeans?

Def. hit up Vermont, they certainly take the cake on beautiful fall foliage. But if you are doing a little tour of New England come to the North Shore of Massachusetts. (Newburport, Salem, Rockport are my favorite towns) perfect little seaport towns, so fun in the fall. They are why I LOVE living in New England (I live in Salem, MA)

Stowe, VT or Woodstock, VT. Be sure to visit the simon pearce store/gallery to see the glass blowing.

I've always wated to spend one Fall in New England-on my bucket list!

I lived for two years in Ug, now in Kenya and I am sure you are right-you will learn a lot in your time there-and you will have an amazing time doing so.

I, too am a Vermont girl! Along Lake Champlain and the border to New York there is a beautiful town in the valley between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks of New York. called Middlebury. With country stores, a wide range of eateries, beautiful views and kind hearted people I cannot recommend Middlebury enough, to be one of your stops in New England next fall.

p.s. Check out the Middlebury Inn for lodging and my fathers local church in the neighboring small town, Bridport Congregational

I lived in Connecticut for 22 years then moved to Denver. I miss the foliage the most. I would strongly suggest going to Litchfield, CT in the fall. It is absolutely breathtaking. Also, if you do end up in CT go to Topsmead park. The drive there will be adorable as well but I like to think of it as a little hidden wonder. No one really knows about it but it is magical. Just google topsmead state park.

I vote for Vermont and Upstate NY but whatever you decide, you might make it at least a two-stop trip with a drive in between to see as much as you can. You'll have a blast!

I'm a western massachusetts girl, so here are my suggestions for out there. The berkshires are beautiful that time of year, but you have to hit New England foliage right, because it is QUICK! Western MA needs a visit generally from 10/15 - 10/20 each year.

The Berkshires are beautiful with lots of interesting art and culture. Check out the Mowhawk trail. A beautiful drive.

http://www.massmoca.org/ -a unique art museum

http://www.redlioninn.com/ -quintessentially New England. People like George washington stayed there. At least get a meal, if not a night. And check out the norman rockwell museum while in town.

If you are wanting to hike, don't miss out on the appalacian trail while out east. You can hit it in the berkshires, but my favorite area for hiking is perhaps in the white mountains of new hampshire. Franconia notch, Mt. washington, etc. GORGEOUS. But foliage is much earlier up there.
