Gatlinburg

I like to travel. If you’re a long time reader you already knew that. But I do love to travel. And I’ll go just about anywhere it doesn’t have to be big places (like some of the places I’ve been) like Maui or Las Vegas (we love Las Vegas!), or Sapphire Valley, NC (which isn’t that far, but we were there a whole week) but I’m happy to take smaller, closer to home trips such as our recent visit to Cornelius. We’ve also gone on a whim – obviously before the kids – up to Blowing Rock and spent a couple of nights, and of course to the beach.

I like to have a trip or something fun planned to look forward to – it helps with the “daily-ness” of life. Right now we don’t have trips planned until October which seems like forever away from now, but it’s still something to look forward to – just not in the too near future.

Then the other day I was thinking and talking to David and I said “why not go to Gatlinburg for a couple of days?” So I think Nanny and I are going to try to meet in Gatlinburg for a couple of days before the kids start back to school! Fun! That’s much closer and gives me something to look forward to break up the everyday stuff! I do so love to travel! This will be the first time I’m taking the kids on a 4 hour trip by myself, so that’ll be interesting I’m sure! But it gives me a good idea of how it would go to take them both all the way to my parent’s house – a 6 hour drive – alone! I’m looking forward to it!

To the beach - this will be the last year we'll be able to spend an extended period of time there, since Luke will be in school next year!
