We Left Our Hearts in Tennessee

 

Well HELLO again to all my sweet blogging friends!!

I have missed you all so so much…

Thanks for your emails & facebook inquiries to make sure I’m

still around.  We have been on a family vacation :)

Our first stop was Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

 This is a photo of my three kids on Fire Fox Mountain.

We rode a bear-crawler and river rapids.

We felt so at home with the farm animals and country atmosphere.

Tennessee made a lasting impression on our family this year…

as we saw sights that took our breath away…the rivers, mountains,

streams, waterfalls, barns, and weather were perfect.

However, the best part of our trip was spending it with a

special family.

You may be asking…where are the photos of our time spent with

the Kinser family?  Well, we have kept those memories safely tucked

away in our hearts.  No need for a camera, just enjoying the moment.

So, when the week came to an end, and we headed back to

Louisiana….we left our hearts in Tennessee :)

 

Thanks for allowing me to share a bit of our vacation with you…

and I’ll be back soon with some highlights of NYC :)

Blessings

My heart lives in TN! Both of my children and their spouses and my GRANDboy are in Nashville. It is beautiful in those Smokey Mts. Glad you enjoyed it!

You were in my knick of the woods! I live in Knoxville, about 45 mins away. Looks like you had a wonderful time.

My husband and I adore Tennessee, Becky. The rolling hills. The dancing creeks. The old homes. So very pretty! It was so nice that you and Amy were able to connect again and spend more time together. :) You two have a very special friendship that will be treasured forever. ♥

We always enjoy our trips to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. This year we were unable to go so I enjoyed your pictures very much. Thanks, Lisa

I just ran across a post on Facebook with your blog site mentioned in it...sooo, I had to come over and take a look. What a surprise to see your post about my home state of Tennessee. I do feel blessed to live in such a beautiful state. Im south of Nashville, though...not very close to the mountains. Im really neeeeding a trip up that way. I love your blog and am now following you. Please visit me at PICKINandPAINTIN.blogspot.com. THANKS.

Becky, Saw you featured in a recent issue of Artful Blogging and saw that you were also a Louisiana gal and just had to stop by and check out your blog.

It is lovely and so warm and inviting. I'll definitely be back.

I don't think I've ever heard of Stonewall. We're in the Northeast section of the state near the Ark. line.

Nice to meet you and much happiness to you!

Jane said...

Your photos have captured the beauty of this part of TN. It's wonderful that you and your family have had this experience. I hope you were able to visit Cades Cove...The meadows are always filled with wild life...

We used to live about an hour from there... On a clear day, you could see the Smokies from our home, outside of Knoxville. Out of all the places we have lived, Tennessee was my absolute favorite! (We lived in Kingsport,TN, too...in the northern eastern corner of the state. Talk about beauty!)

:) Part of my heart has ALWAYS been there. Mama and Daddy took us every single October...most incredible memories and you have a photo of the Sweet Fanny Adams theatre...oh me...what happy memories there!!! I was chatting with a member of the crew on FB this a.m.
I do hope you'll get to go back again!

Heaven's Walk said...

Hey Becky! Just checking in with you to see how you're doing! I've been noticing your absence in blogland - and pray that all is well at your house! :)
