Happy Tuesday!

Hello all you lovely people! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was just what I needed. I am 100x happier than last Monday although a bit emotional…

Watching all of the hurricane disaster unfold on television after just watching Texas go through it is just horrible. Irma is visiting us but only high winds and some ridiculous rain. 9/11 is on my mind as well. I’m sure most of us remember where we were…I was 8 months pregnant and living in Hawaii. I’ll never forget nor can those that gave everything on that day in so many ways. It doesn’t seem possible it was 16 years ago. I also can’t help but think of my Dad. Yesterday was his birthday. We haven’t spoken in 8 years. Sigh……..

In other news……….I’m sad summer is coming to an end 😦 I haven’t had the chance to highlight any of our summer trips here. My son and I visited Vermont (my home), Savannah, GA and one last quick trip to the Great Smoky Mountains in TN–along with several weekends at the beach which is my favorite!

Some of the highlights:

They painted this silo in Vermont—beautiful.  There were a couple of them.

We also visited Dollywood which I HIGHLY recommend!  Yes my 15 year old wanted to ride the Merry Go Round ❤

While waiting for our dinner reservation we walked around–never a shortage of moonshine in this state and you can sample away…

Our dinner selection was an excellent choice and although we took first available seating, I am so glad we got outdoor seating at Old Mill Pottery House Café and Grill.

Dinner was amazing and we tried their signature dessert–Lemonade Pie…I had a bite (or two) and was unfortunately a little disappointed but I’m a Key Lime fan anyway!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Summer–link your vacations–especially if they involve lots of pictures–and finitely if they involve food!
