taking the time



Our summer is still in full swing.

Lately we have been cruising the Southeast and enjoying company on the homestead.


First up:
Are we there yet?- LDC
North Carolina

Kentucky
Tennessee 



Second: The Kerr Family Visit

Is it 2:30 yet?- Lisa, Day 1
Is it 2:30 yet?- Lindsey, Day 2

It isn't good to keep things bottled up.


Finish your day, sparkling. 

I'll be there in a Prosecco

Smoky Girls Getaway 2017

A glimpse of the adventure...
A stop in Cherokee to play at the town center park
Our usual evening routine to wait and watch the elk come in for grazing
An afternoon float trip

Hi, Hey, Howdy, Hello

Hike to Andrews Bald
It was a strenuous hike but we saw, learned and received more than we were seeking.

(When I state strenuous...think backpackers climbing a short distance and then having to stop time and time again...think everyone you pass on the way out is huffing and puffing. It was a demanding trail, especially for little hikers.)

Personal highlight of the trip.
