Home Sweet Camper

A few highlights from my week of visiting in Nashville: we managed to get all of our laundry washed; we helped Daniel's dad buy new mattresses; my brother took me to a local restaurant {Marché Artisan Foods} that had some great European-style food; we were able to preview my sister and bro-in-law's new house {and spend time with my precious niece}.

Negatives: There are always more people that we wish that we could have had a chance to visit with.

I am now back home {at the camper} and I have to admit that I am actually thankful to take a shower in our tiny {3x2 foot} shower tonight. All feels right in the world when you come home {wherever home is} and settle into your normal routines and shower in your own bathroom and sleep in your own bed.
In addition I am incredibly thankful that fall has finally made its entrance. My sister and I went to Starbucks this morning and had Pumpkin Spice Lattes {I actually had one at the beginning of September but it felt wrong to be drinking in the summer-like temps}. 

The quiet at the campground is amazing and the stars are brilliant tonight. A part of me is nervous about our pending move to the country, but I am thankful that we will still have the peace and quiet and magnificent starry skies that living in a campground has offered us.

The only way to make tonight better would be if Daniel was home {he is in Knoxville all week for work}.


  1. Glad you enjoyed the time in Nashville! Love Mom

  2. Thanks Mom! It would have been nice to see you guys too.


Family Hike at Fiery Gizzard

On Saturday we had originally planned to go on a group hike on the Fiery Gizzard Trail , but it was cancelled at the last minutes. So...
