Autumn Drive By – Charming Seattle Neighborhoods

Autumn Drive By - Charming Seattle Neighborhoods

Hi friends, it’s Courtney here today! My mom and I were out running errands for a photoshoot this week, and on our way home we decided to do a spur of the moment autumn “drive by”! We always love a good neighborhood drive by, but especially in autumn with all the beautiful fall colors! My mom is in the middle of writing another book right now (!!!), so today I thought I’d spare her from extra writing and let these lovely pictures speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy and have a great day!

Drive By: Lake Oswego

Most of my life I lived in Lake Oswego, Oregon. It’s where I feel most “at home.” It’s not only where I grew up, but it’s where my husband and I lived when we were first married and where we raised our girls during their early years (until we moved to Eastmoreland, where we had our son!).

My parents still live in Lake Oswego, so it’s nice that we are able to “go home” to visit, even though it’s not to the same homes we used to have.

I thought I’d give you a little peek at just a few of the houses we drove by as we were buzzing around our old neighborhoods last week.

Drive By: Lake Oswego

This (above) has always been one of my all-time favorite houses on the lake.

Drive By: Lake Oswego

So charming, yes? It is just around the corner from one of the houses we lived in when I was in high school so I’d drive (or boat!) by it all the time.

Straight across the lake there (above) you can (barely!) see the home I lived in! It was such a beautiful house!

This house was for sale in one of the neighborhoods where we lived with our girls so many years ago.

It had the cutest garage; it looked like a guest house from the side.

This is a former neighbor’s home, I’ve shared it a few times on the blog, I’ve always been in love with this house. It’s still just as charming as ever!

Lots of homes had flags flying! The 4th of July is always a very festive time around the lake.

I love going on drive bys, but I always feel a bit homesick driving around the neighborhoods where I used to live. But, I’m always grateful for so many wonderful memories here!

Do you ever feel homesick for neighborhoods you think of as “home”?
