{Churches & Cemeteries}

There are many old churches and cemeteries scattered throughout the area.  I am always intrigued by the old cemeteries too.  There are many graves with simple name markers.  Also, there are numerous graves of infants and children.  One family lost an infant a year for 3 consecutive years.  I cannot imagine the loss that would have been felt by that family!

{Why I Escape During Spring Break!}



Many are always curious as to why one would leave the area for spring break. Well…there is a very simple answer to that one. To escape the CRAZINESS!!! Yes, PCB gets beyond crazy during spring break and is NOT a relaxing place to be.

{Houses of Yesterday}

These are some of the old houses & barns that are in Cades Cove & Cataloochee.  I am so thankful that modern day homes are a little more insulated!

{Refreshed}

After having the last week off, I am feeling 100% refreshed!

So…what did I do with that time off???  I went to Tennessee for the week!  One of my most favorite places to be and relax without a doubt.  The weather was perfect, not too cool or too hot.

And yes, there are a ton of pictures to post from this trip and quite a few funny happenings that I will be sharing about too!  So stay tuned for pics!!!
