last week we snuck away for a day in the mountains. we packed a lunch and some firewood and set off to the smokies. i love this part of tennessee and can see us settling here for awhile. we made stops where there was still snow left on the ground and for every teensy waterfall we could find. a lot of the park is shut down not only for winter but due to a major landslide which has washed the road away. we collected unique "forest finds" as carter calls them and held hands crossing the cold little river. we hiked around the sinks and had a picnic before heading back to town.
hopefully, if east tennessee is in our future. we will wind up
working and living near the mountains. we really felt at home here.
