It's Finally Here!

Tomorrow is the big day. We are leaving on vacation and I am so excited. Smokey mountains here we come! We decided to leave tomorrow and get part of the way down instead of leaving at 4:30 a.m. Monday. We have no plan for tomorrow. Just get up, get ready and leave whenever. We'll stop when we feel like stopping, get a hotel and a nice dinner. Monday morning we will pack up, get some breakfast and head out. We can't get in the house until 3:00, so no reason to be in a huge hurry. I'm really looking forward to Tuesday. That is the day we plan to go to Smokey Mountain National Park. The weather is suppose to be awesome that day and hiking is definitely on the agenda. If you've never been there, it is a truly awe inspiring place. On the way home, we are stopping overnight in Fairfield Glade to visit with our friend who lost her husband last month.

This is going to sound stupid, but I am going to miss you guys. Reading your posts and your comments and having you read mine has become an important part of my life. When I started this back in January, I never would have guessed that would happen. This is one of the few times I wish I had a laptop, so I could take you all with me. As much as I will miss all of you, I am going to miss my grandbabies so much more. These girls are the loves and lights of my life. Any of you who are grandmas know exactly what I am talking about.

Take good care of yourselves while I'm away and I'll be back in a week or so with pictures and stories for you.


  1. Have a great time, Mom!!! We'll miss you and Dad while you're gone. Love you lots :)

  2. that's really sweet :)

    now go vacate your life and get a way for awhile. enjoy yourself and have a nice time with dad!

    we'll all take care of each other back home!

    and pray for you too!

  3. Have a fantastic vacation, it sounds like so much fun!

    We'll miss you too :) I feel the same way, even if I go away for a long weekend... I'm always anxious to catch up on blogs when I get home!

  4. hope you are having a fabulous time!!!

  5. The Smokies are breathtaking. Have a wonderful time.

  6. Oh, I envy you girl! You are going to my favorite place on earth! Don't worry about us back here, we will hold the fort down. Can't wait to see your pictures. I meant to tell you to try to go to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede while you are there if you go to Pigeon Forge.

  7. Hope you are having a GREAT time!!
    I love Gatlinburg...We went there on our Honeymoon:)

  8. I hope you had a great trip! And I hope your friend is doing okay.
    The thing I love about a laptop is that I can take my blogs along for after Luke goes to bed and it's relaxing time.;)


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
