My then husband surveys the surroundings. I don't think he was as impressed by Reston as I was but then I had a friend who worked for the Rouse company, another big developer. New towns had caught my interest and gave me options to the dreaded suburbs of my childhood.
Our good friend Robert drove us in his ancient...Volvo? Saab?
I was pretty sure I was pregnant at this time, having had one miscarriage already. We wanted a baby born while my husband was still in the Air Force so the baby would be 'free'. Driving back to Texas, I was sure as I had my first waves of serious nausea which was a shock to both of us. So many things you don't know when it's your first child til you experience them. Morning sickness was only a phrase til my body explained it to me!
Whether we get snow or not this weekend, I know for sure I won't be driving to Reston, though a trip to the Leesburg outlets could be tempting...
