An Unexpected Surprise
We managed to make the trip back from Alabama to Bluff City, TN in one day and had a wonderful time reuniting with some friends there and enjoyed some pizza and great conversation. It was really great to be back among friends…although it seems we are never far from friends to connect with in our travels. We love that. I think Hannah had play dates for all but one of the 5 days we were there.
We loved seeing the leaves changing colors on our trip east and it was even more vivid and beautiful the further north we traveled. Although, by some standards, they were not as vivid in some locations as previous years. it was so nice to see the color.
During our stay in TN, we took a drive to visit my parents in Boone, NC and had the added surprise and pleasure of seeing more family than we intended. It was so wonderful to see everyone that came out for a meal and fellowship. I just love my family. Beautiful people, they are.
It was really hard to leave that day. We’ll see them again, I know this. But still…well, I love my family and it was a beautiful day with all of them and I just didn’t want it to end.
Before we left TN to head toward PA, we were able to get one more campfire chat in with some dear friends. What a way to end our stay!
Blessing and Beauty Awaits,
