>Missing the Great Outdoors

>I love being outside…and yes, I even like to sweat.  Something I really miss about Tennessee (and Georgia for that matter) is the landscape.  I loved being able to drive 10 minutes and be able to do some really great hiking in the woods.  Those tall trees provide some great shade, making your hike much cooler than just walking in the sun.  I haven’t been able to find a place to hike, quite like the hills of Tennessee.  Last fall I was able to go on a really long, great hike with my family and it was so perfect!  Here are some pictures from that hike that just remind me of the amazing hills that I still consider home.

At the start of the hike..man my hair was short!

I’m headed home this week for my good friend Sonya’s wedding.  I’m thinking I may have to hit the trails one morning and soak in all that beauty.


One thought on “>Missing the Great Outdoors

  1. >Beautiful memories ๐Ÿ˜‰ Gotta love photos, and gotta love those times outside. I love thinking of when we would go run the trails at the Botanical gardens! I was just talking about it the other day with my mother in law, who's been visiting this week. Makes me miss you all the more. Wish we could be at Sonya's – to see them get married AND to see you!! Hope you have a blast, take a ton of photos, and tell me about it when you get back?! ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxox
