A Great Getaway. . .

Shane and I just returned from a 3 day trip to the mountains of TN. Although I am a "beach junky" (give me warm weather and sand any day!) I have to admit that I had a wonderful time. It was nice to get away. We, along with another couple, rented a cabin on the TOP of the mountain. Did I mention that I like flat land and I am not terribly fond of heights?!? We were about 3.5 miles up the side of the mountain. The views were beautiful and were worth the not-so-fun drive up (you can't really tell from the picture but that is looking over the entire town of Pigeon Forge - that's how high up we were!).

We woke up to about 3 inches of snow on Friday morning.

Once you got about halfway down the mountain there was no snow. Guess that's what they mean when they say "snow in the high elevations".

It was a great getaway, especially during this very busy time of year. Being up that high was amazing and, as was mentioned more than once, gave you the feeling that you could reach up and touch heaven. Here's hoping that sometime over this Christmas Holiday you get a glimpse of heaven!

In case I don't blog again in the next week or so, Merry Christmas from our house to yours!

Hope your Christmas was fantastic friend. Love the shots of Gatlinburg. We were there back at the end of October and it was so beautiful. Also, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting yesterday. I really appreciate it. Kudo's to you on your daily work with those special needs children. I think you as well as many other special needs parents. You are a special and very unique individual! Keep in touch. Also, I pray 2009 is a joyous and happy new year for you and yours.
Blessings, Angie Seaman
