Earlier this month we packed up the car and drove to the Smokies- one last hurrah before school resumed. There we rented a log cabin at the top of a mountain- when I say “top” I’m talking 7 loops around the mountain (my knees still hurt from walking/running up and down.) The views were breathtaking, and incredibly serene. This trip I wanted to capture our mornings together. We all take pictures of all the touristy things, which I, of course, have. We zip lined (twice!) and bought the CD of images, went white water rafting, bought those images, too! We hiked the Appalachian, went put-put on a mountainside, toured some caverns, and saw a dinner show. All amazing memories. But there is something about the morning that I love so deeply.
