a winter road trip

We are on the road. We left town last night for a winter road trip. Mardi Gras has come to town and this year my family of four is hitting the road (a new yearly tradition maybe). We are looking forward to maybe finding a little bit of snow along our way.  We are going to see the sights of the Great Smokey Mountains with a quick stop to visit Graceland and the Rock-n-Roll Museum as well as some famous sights in Nashville the home of country music.  I traveled to Tennessee when I was a young girl but I hardly remember the trip and I have yet to visit beautiful North Carolina. We don't have a lot of time and we don't have any real plans other than our basic route. While driving through the mountains we plan to visit Gatlinburg, Asheville, the Cherokee Reservation and Gorges State Park. Before heading to Atlanta then to Dauphin Isle as one of our last stops. A big loop around.  It will be a lot of driving and a lot of quality family time while seeing a lot of new sights and experiencing our country, our land. All in 9 days.

Traveling with a three year old boy who is bubbling with energy should be interesting. Our daughter is not new to road trips, she travels amazingly, she's been doing it since she was 9 months old. I have been hesitant to travel with our little guy basically since day one because he gets so antsy.  Well, we are about to find out...

I am excited to pick up many beautiful treasures inspired by Appalachia, by the folklore of the surrounding areas, the land and our trip that I can come home to create with. And maybe a pair of boots.
